Leeds today: TED, half term, wheel, roof, Vantage, plate spinning, rink and Happy Thoughts.

I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day. There’s a lot of miserable news around today, but I’ll avoid that and instead send you over to Holt Park Community News, which celebrated yesterday by highlighting the things they love about the area.

For those enjoying the Ice Cube in Millennium Square, which closes next weekend, so hurry along, South Leeds Life has news of the proposed ice rink on Elland Road

Also on SLL Jeremy discusses plate spinning. I’m sure many of us know just what he means at the moment…

Short notice, but the VANTAGE art prize, a cross art form exhibition bringing together 45 emerging artists working in Leeds will take place on Thursday 21st February. It’s at Ellington House in Leeds Valley Business park but the organisers are providing 2 free shuttle bus services running throughout the evening. The bus will pick up and drop off outside Leeds Parish Church, 6pm till 11pm.

My Life in Leeds was tweeting some great photos inside the new Trinity shopping centre yesterday, collected here. I do love that roof, but they seem to have a lot to do before opening next month!

Leeds Playlist presents us with a soundtrack to the next week of what’s playing in Leeds.

Apparently it’s half term next week, so Leeds Inspired has provided a useful list of ways to keep the children occupied.

My principle source of excitement this weekend looks like being the Observation Wheel Leeds (OWL – still makes me smile), which opens tomorrow.

The 27th Feb will see live streaming from TED2013 at Long Beach into the Rose Bowl! For more information the TEDx Leeds guys have the details.

That’s it! Not a trace of horse meat. Speaking of which, if I calculate correctly it should be the farmers’ market on Briggate this weekend for food with a known provenance. In the meantime, don’t forget the lovely butchers in Kirkgate Market. Enjoy your weekend!
