Beeston Festival bounces back – South Leeds Life
After a 27-month hiatus, the Beeston Festival returned on Saturday (September 18, 2021) and crowds flocked to a sunny Cross Flatts Park to enjoy the show.
Mark Day, secretary of the volunteer organizing committee said:
“It’s been a long time since our last festival and it was good to be back. I think it’s the busiest I’ve ever seen! This is what the community needed after a tough year and a bit.
