Dadstastic Day 2019


Come and join the biggest free Father’s Day party in England!

Dadstastic Day is a day of free family fun organised by Leeds Dads in partnership with Leeds City Museum and Child Friendly Leeds.

The day is for babies, toddlers and children up to 11 years old and offers a great opportunity for parents, carers and grandparents to interact with their children.

The day’s activities will include music, dance, science, storytelling, arts and crafts, and sport.

Phoenix Dance, upcycle vinyl and turn records into art, jump and shout at the BoomChikkaBoom Baby Rave, and meet your favourite fairy tale characters.
There’s fun outdoors with giant board games, Pop Up Sport in Millennium Square, along with inclusive sports such as Wheelchair Tennis and Boccia. 

Leeds Mobile Libraries will be hosting story time sessions, and you can join Mr Bubbles to blow giant bubbles - can you make a bubble float over Leeds Civic Hall. 

Create crazy carnival headpieces, or get into a fight with Lego dad-bots! 
Learn to comb and brush your children's hair, and plait ponytails galore with Leeds’ White Rose Beauty College, and enjoy ‘A Musical Day with Dad’ at Raise And Shine’s Family Story Time Singalong session.
