Leeds today: meetings, music, arts, mayors and pedalos.

Good morning folks! It’s Elly here with your sunny Tuesday’s round up of exciting news and information from across the Leeds region (and further afield).

The South Leeds Life blog team are holding a meeting for residents of South Leeds to discuss their blog and magazine – if you’re a South Leeds lover then get along to the meeting to see how you can be involved with the blog and influence what sort of stories get published!

This Saturday, why not rock out to a good cause with the Instrumental music night, organised jointly by Cloth Cat and Arts and Minds? There’s a preview of what looks like a fun night over on Culture Vulture.

Starting today and ending Wednesday, the Paper Birds present ‘Thirsty’, a play exploring why – as a nation – we seems to  be gagging for a drink! More information over on Leeds Inspired.

A new event is coming to Leeds Gallery in April, titled Northern Arts Uncovered, and sets out its remit as providing people with the opportunity to see ‘fresh talent in the UK art industry’. More information over on the Northern Arts Uncovered website.

Calverley, a village that always seems to be doing something (good on you!), has had a huge spring clean and garage sale to raise money for their local schools and good causes. Awesome! More information right here.

The Leeds Citizen has an interesting post on the upcoming Mayoral referendum that none of us really seem to know about or what to do when we do have to vote, or even if it’s really applicable. As Leeds Citizen says: Hey ho. Why not read his/her post and see what you think?

Two Radio Leeds presenters are pedalo-ing down the Leeds-Liverpool canal in order to raise money for Sports Relief – check out their diary from Day Six of the challenge!

The Olympic torch will be travelling through Leeds, including parts of Hunslet and Beeston, and South Leeds Life has a little sneak preview of the route.

That’s it for today kids – have a great day and don’t forget to enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think. Ciao!
