A flash mob dance group entertained thousands of visitors.

The event was organised by John Slemensek and Ian Meek-Myers, who used to run the former JuJu Shop in the Corn Exchange.

More than 200 artists from Leeds and beyond were be represented at the Corn Exchange over the weekend.

There were twice as many artists’ stalls compared to the 2013 Showcase Spectacular.

There was a pop-up cinema from Chronovision and exhibitions and galleries featured at the event included Basement Arts Project, Leeds Art Party and Arts & Minds Network Artists.
