The weather might be rather unpredictable at the moment but there’s still plenty of great activities taking place in and around Leeds. Here’s a few of our handpicked suggestions.
Join our club: A new centre inspired by a love of books has unveiled an action-packed timetable to keep little ones busy. Parents and carers with under-fours can act out stories and sing nursery rhymes together at Bookworm Club, 10.30am to 11.30am on Wednesdays at the Rainbow Factory, Farsley. Theatre Club, for eight to 11-year-olds, is also on Wednesdays: 4.30pm to 5.30pm; while four to seven-year-olds can take to the stage on Sundays: 10am to 11am. Craft club is Thursdays: 4.30pm to 5.30pm. For prices see rainbowfactorykids.com.
Spoil them: With just a week to go until Father’s Day, Carluccio’s is offering a tempting trade. On June 21 only, “dodgy dad ties” can be exchanged for a beer when dining in their restaurant at Trinity Leeds. Foodies might also enjoy the eatery’s Father’s Day Hampers, available online only, for £30.
On the trail: Pupils at The Froebelian School, Horsforth, have created a colourful set of abstract sculptures, including a prehistoric animal and a “mad machine”, to be displayed in Horsforth Walk of Art on July 4 and 5. The free arts festival will feature music performances, shed galleries, open gardens and “art-bombed” wheelie bins.
