Afternoon people of Leeds, and welcome to a late-running edition of BGL’s daily roundup.
If you haven’t already, check out @wandapops Things to Do in Leeds this Week over on LOL! Online. Other things on this week include the launch event of a photography event in Flannels, where the work of photographers from former Soviet countries will be exhibited alongside the photos of Leeds photography students.
Also, if you’re free Wednesday and Friday this week, the West Yorkshire Archive Service has two free events on how to get started in family history. Check out their site for more.
Leeds City Council has got another photography competition on: anyone know the results of the last one?
You can win some delicious ice cream courtesy of Indie Ices over on North Leeds News, although I doubt it will be posted (lolz).
Leanne Buchan, the ‘small but sceptical’ Culture Vulture digital editor, explores the latest grant offering from Screen Yorkshire.
And, despite the former human being not liking cheese in any form, apparently the rest of the North does: former Corrie actor Sean Wilson has turned his hand to making artisan cheeses (all the celebs are at it darling) and produced a range of luvverly Lancashire cheeses.
Over at Kirkgate Market, The Source has a series of events starting this week celebrating the Olympic teams that will be visiting Leeds during the sporting event. This Saturday, pop along to The Source for a host of delicious South African themed treats! I also received some information about an hour’s free parking if you spend over £20 but I can’t seem to find any information online about it: help?
Briggate has exploded and it’s all in the name of sculpture.
Even seven year old children don’t agree with Cameron’s policies, reports the BBC. May be slightly exaggerating but seriously, Dave, if kids are writing to you saying they’re annoyed, maybe have a little rethink? We’ll be teaching them to hold placards instead of rattles soon enough.
And that’s it for today. The weather is still a bit rubbish but, hey, there’s probably a mug, teabag, hot water and milk nearby, so everything’s ok. Have a luvverly afternoon!
