CBBC hosts present at Leeds Young Film Festival



Have your say

Fabulously fun, spine-tickling spectacular and monstorously mad movies were introduced by children’s television presenters Ben Shires and Katie Thistleton as part of a film weekend for children.

The duo, who present on CBBC, hosted the showcase of films at Hyde Park Picture House on Saturday for the Leeds Young Film Festival.

Ben, who is originally from Leeds and who presents Officially Amazing! was joined by Katie to check out favourites including the Toy Story Trilogy and Moshi Monsters.
