Leeds today: events, Olympic fallout, alarms, tuk tuk, and Light Night.

Good afternoon fans of the news! Here’s Tuesday’s round up of stuff that’s going down in Leeds with me, Elly Snare.

Tonight, Kirsty aka gazpachodragon is running her Leeds Letters and Colouring in Club. On Thursday, BGL favourite Tessa Smith will be gigging at Giraffe on Greek Street from 6.30pm. So no complaining you have nothing to do.

More Leeds events: firstly, make sure you check out this week’s Things To Do In Leeds this week by @wandapops over on LOL! Leeds Online.

If you’re a fan of dance, then check out the October Day of Dance, held in Saltaire on the 6th October.

The brilliant Simon on the Streets also has a little treat for you – two pairs of Biffy Clyro tickets are up for grabs to the highest bidders. Tweet them @simonotstreets with your bid before Thursday 12pm to be in with a chance of winning!

If you’re interested in how we get around Leeds, and the future of transport in the city, then make sure you head to the Cultural Conversations event this Friday, which asks ‘What’ll really get you moving?’. More information over on LOL! Leeds Online.

Apparently the Olympics is to blame for the third consecutive month of house prices falling in Yorkshire and Humberside, says the YEP. People were too busy watching amazing feats of sporting excellence to try and sell their home. Oh the calamity!

Talking of feats, how about travelling to the seven modern wonders of the world in a three-wheeled tuk-tuk in the name of charity? Yes, it’s pretty awesome. Take a look at the YEP for more details.

Kicking off next month it’s the magnificent, marvellous and bloody good Morley Literature Festival. South Leeds Life has bookmarked it with a lovely quote from the director, Jenny Harris.

Ooh ooh, it’s the sound of…flood warning alarms in East Leeds. Thanks BBC.

PLUG: I have a new blog post talking about a key fashion trend for this season. Read it if you like fruit and mystery.

Finally, Light Night is just around the corner and with a new (potentially controversial) theme of ‘mild horror’ pervading the festivities, Leeds List catches up with its curator Steve Manthorp. Thoughts please?

That’s it for today – as always if you want your news or event to be featured then just tweet us @BeyondGdnLeeds or drop us an email to beyondgdnleeds@gmail.com. Have a nice day!
