    This is our 12th (!) family friendly DIY matinee gig in Leeds. It's aimed at everyone and anyone regardless of age and ability so feel free to bring the whole family (or pop down on your own). It's a matinee gig so bands from 2pm-4pm but the bar is still open with an ace range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks (including amazing hot drinks to go with the incredible cakes that That Old Chestnut will be serving up).

    The gig is also a benefit for Wheatfields Hospice in Leeds, where 100% of the money will be going. We also have a Food Bank collection point at the gig and a clothing swap shop where you can drop off clothes or swap them for some that are already there (it's mainly kids clothes and all that are leftover after the gig will be going to Emmaus Leeds).

    Band wise we have:

    Mr C D Wallum & His Ten a Penny Footwarmers
