Child Friendly Leeds is 5 years old – join the celebration
Five years ago, Leeds City Council launched its ambition to be a truly child friendly city. In order to celebrate Child Friendly Leeds’ 5th birthday, the council and partner organisations are hosting a Big Birthday Bonanza and the whole city is invited.
There will be two days of free events for families in the city centre on 22 and 23 July 2017 from 12.00noon until 4.00pm. Please note, an early opening on Millennium Square (11am – 12noon) on 23 July is for children with additional and complex needs.
There will be many free activities on Millennium Square, Briggate, Cookridge Street, Albion Street and in the shopping centres. Families are invited to bring a picnic and enjoy free screenings on the big screen in Millennium Square. CBBC is also joining in the celebration as are Breeze, Active Sports and city centre ambassadors, who will be putting on lots of different activities to encourage families to explore the city centre. These will include a climbing wall, go-karts, sports activities, a flash mob dance and arts and crafts. More information is available on the website:
All event visitors will be given a map of activities and encouraged to take up the free offers. There may be nominal charges for some events and for refreshments, but the majority of activities are free. We look forward to seeing you there!
