    I’ll be leading this walk/event/happening as part of the Leeds Jane’s Walk Festival (http://janeswalk.org/united-kingdom/leeds/) and would love you all to come along. Well, not all of you. That would be too many people. You can join me on either Saturday 6 May at 3pm, or Sunday 7 May at 6pm. Please e-mail me as it says below if you’d like to come!

    Also available on Facebook events:

    Saturday – https://www.facebook.com/events/680949028759613

    ‘An Otley Run’ is a poetic pub crawl led by writer Joe Williams, based on his forthcoming book of the same name.

    The walk takes in four of the pubs along the route of the famous Otley Run pub crawl. There will be readings from the book, which tells the story of two groups of people as they spend their day doing the Otley Run, which runs from Far Headingley to the edges of Leeds City Centre.

    Along the way Joe will share a little local and personal history, and most importantly there will be plenty of opportunity for socialising and conversation, with people you know, and people you don't.

    Participants are welcome to bring a pub-themed poem or two of their own to read if they would like to, but please keep it short(ish) and on-topic.

    Places are strictly limited due to space requirements, so please reserve your place in advance by emailing joe@joewilliams.co.uk. We can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to fit you in if you just show up on the day (though you’re welcome to try).

    The walk is expected to take around 3.5 to 4 hours, but most of this time will be devoted to the social aspect, and if you need to leave early, that’s fine. On the other hand, if anyone wants to continue the pub crawl afterwards, that’s also an option! Total walking distance is approximately 2.3 miles.

    Meet at the war memorial outside St Chad’s Church, Otley Road, Far Headingley, Leeds LS16 5JT (directly opposite Woodies through the hedged archway) ready for a prompt start on the hour.

    Participants must be aged 18 or over. Please bear in mind that you may need ID to enter some of the pubs if you're lucky enough to look under 25.
