Sup kids, it’s another Tuesday here on BGL and it’s Elly with you to report on the latest local news. By the way, have you noticed how my reports are getting more and more like local radio (but in a cool way)?
The BBC reports on the reopening of City Varieties and the opening show, which included Ken Dodd and no doubt his tickling stick.
Exploring Leeds has a round up post of her 100 mile walk (!) along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal broken down into 7 days – phew! Read more on her blog.
There’s another Leeds Book Club ‘n’ Swap happening in October at Arcadia – find out more here.
Leeds Grub reviews the new Pinche Pinche Mexican restaurant in Chapel Allerton: includes pictures of delicious tostados, slurp! (That was very Beano).
South Leeds Life blogs on the first public meeting to be held about the plans for a new primary school in the Beeston/Holbeck area – find out the results and further discussions here.
Also one for the kids, children’s author Emma Barnes is taking part in a book signing at Waterstone’s in the city centre this weekend! More information on the Facebook page. (Thanks to @indieices for that one).
CCTV footage has been released by West Yorkshire Police showing the moments just before a man was shot outside a pub in Burmantofts, reports the BBC.
The Culture Vulture has a triple whammy of art, music, and food, with their competition to find a new front cover for Mills and Boon (with cash prize!), an interview with Leeds’ indie-pop be-vested band The Wednesday Club on their new album, and our very own Mike Wallis reporting on York and Saltaire food festivals and includes the line ‘Oh, for some fresh cobnuts!’.
The Guardian Northerner blog has a lovely article about an exhibition about arts and crafts houses, and includes gratuitous pictures of rooms. I’ve been to Blackwell (mentioned in the article) and it is awesome (in the real sense, inspiring awe). All lovely-lovely-read-it-with-a-cup-of-tea-and-a-posh-biscuit type stuff.
More news? News not included? Let us know with an email, tweet, or pigeon post. Don’t forget our BGL Alt Photo Competition is still running! Get on it people. Ciao for now from me!
