Leeds today: castle, water, Breeze, beer, art walk, HS2, Chelsea and novelty vehicles.

Hello, and welcome to Wednesday. It’s pretty much all fun stuff today with not much real news hanging hanging around.

The YEP reports that there was again a prize for Yorkshire at the Chelsea Flower Show. We do seem to go quite well at Chelsea…

LCC is running a consultation on a novelty public hire vehicle. Next it’ll be a banana boat (or a DUKW, like in L’pool) on the river/canal.

The BBC has asked a question about HS2 – could the money be better spent? Almost certainly yes.

Leeds Markets is holding a World Feast to launch a monthly street food event on Briggate on Saturday. This is, of course, part of Leeds Loves Food. Amongst many other things to do with the Food Festival the editor (Mike) is doing a series of chocolate demonstrations at the Arch Cafe on Saturday; free to attend and no need to book, just pop in.

If you’ve heard about the Art Walk but never remembered to look up when it’s on then take a look at the details from Culture Vulture, which make it sounds like a lot of fun. It is.

An ‘exciting action-packed adventure’ with Yorkshire Water? The utility company is on the lookout for a local family to help front its biggest ever consultation. Apparently 80% of its customers have no idea just what YW do.

Half term is imminent: LCC is running ‘We Love Leeds’ free workshops for children. Don’t forget about Breeze International Youth Festival, too.

Wendy’s Things to see and do this week has lots of fun things to look at, including a talk by Rose George and of course the beer festival at Leftbank.

Alas, the petting zoo we reported on has been cancelled… but stressy students get a giant bouncy castle instead!

And that’s it for today. Thanks for reading and we’ll see you on Friday!
