Leeds today: books, zombies, edibles and job losses.

Hi folks! It’s Tuesday and it’s me, @ebsnare, bringing you some juicy news and blog activity from around Leeds.

PLUG WARNING: Here’s my post of a weekend trip on the Keighley-Oxenhope steam railway. It was great fun and the pics look like something out of Brief Encounter.

The YEP has a write up of this weekend’s zombie goings-on, the 2.8 Hours Later zombie chase through Leeds. Hopefully more on the events of the night soon!

The Leeds Book Club does a post of some of best things to see at this year’s Morley Literature Festival, including The Culture Vulture’s Mills and Boon night!

The new home for Phoenix Dance Theatre and Northern Ballet has been shortlisted for a National Lottery award, reports Leeds City Council.

Over on the BBC, an update of the search to find a missing Huddersfield man after his car was found near Loch Laggan recently – he has been missing since 2008.

If you’re interested in gaining experience at radio production and other broadcasting techniques, check out this post from South Leeds Life. BGL FM anyone? Also on South Leeds Life is information about Leeds Sustainable Development group, which should be of interest to anyone who wants to see what happens to the old Tetley’s Brewery.

The Guardian Northerner blog reports on the Incredible Edible event and festival over in Todmorden: check out that cabbage!

The Yorkshire Evening Post writes on the fury over proposed BAE job losses, expected to be around 3000 in Lancashire and East Yorkshire.

That’s it from me – don’t forget we’re near the end of the BGL Alt Photo Comp so get your entries in asap!
