5 Things Coming Up in Leeds

13 October 2016

1) Leeds First Ever Rum Festival 
Saturday 15th October from 12pm to 5pm 


At the Corn Exchange this weekend I'm super excited for the Rum Festival! There'll be a cocktail bar featuring brands such as Re'Al Syrups, Havana Club, Appleton Estate, Santa Teresa and Rumbullion. There'll also be masterclasses, live music and DJs, alongside local Caribbean food.

2) No/Gloss Film Festival
22nd - 23rd October


Read my full preview of this here! It's going to be an amazing event!

3) Leeds International Film Festival LIFF30
3-17 November 



This year, Jim Jarmusch's new work Paterson will open the festival, while Toni Erdmann, the jewel in 2016's Cannes' crown, will close it. Last year I was lucky enough to go to lots of screenings during LIFF29 - I loved getting to journey around Leeds to the different venues, and seeing all sorts of amazing films! Can't wait for this.

4) Beacons Metro
26th October - 8th November



Dinosaur Jr., Margaret Glaspy, NAO, Fucked Up and more... It's going to be a great week for music in Leeds! Also it's only £50 for an all inclusive ticket, lovely stuff.

5) The Exorcist Outdoor Cinema plus Halloween Disco
Friday 28th October



Last year I saw the Nightmare on Elm Street in Kirkstall Abbey as part of Sneaky Cinema, and though it was very chilly it was a definitely worth the October alfresco screening. Super spooky and lots of fun! Go this year if you get a chance.
