An all-day street party of music, food and festivities will take over the Round Foundry area on Water Lane, part of Leeds’s newly regenerated South Bank, on Saturday 26th August between 12:00pm and 11:00pm.
The South Bank Social event will see the junction of Water Lane and Globe Road down to Butcher Street closed to traffic for the celebrations as independent foodie stalls and live music spill out onto the streets from Water Lane through to the Round Foundry’s cobbled courtyards, which are home to a number of independent foodie outlets.
Holbeck hotspots including The Cross Keys, The Midnight Bell, and Northern Monk Brewery will be on hand to offer a fantastic range of local beers, spirits and wines, as they will also be acting as hub venues for Leeds Beer Week, taking place from 25th August – 3rd September. The Midnight Bell’s sprawling courtyard will be home to the South Bank Social family area, while a plethora of local musicians and DJs will perform outside The Cross Keys throughout the day.
Favourite foodie outlets Out of the Woods and David Street Café will be spilling onto Water Lane to provide a delicious offering of local food to tantalise taste buds while Motive8, The Round Foundry’s gym and personal training studio which is run by personal trainer Jenny Cromack, will be entertaining with an array of aerobic activities. Fitness fanatics can battle it out with a press up competition, keg-carrying competition and tyre carry, whilst little ones can enjoy egg & spoon races, sack races and bean bag races.
Leeds-based Northern Craft, an independent craft collective founded by Carley Batley and Sean Mort, will be bringing a carefully curated collection of Yorkshire’s finest arts and crafts stalls to the Saw Mill Yard cobbles offering a spot of retail therapy nestled amongst the area’s well-loved heritage buildings.
