The Cardi Arms Knees Up

28th June 2024

Pack up your troubles and get ready for the FIRST CARDI ARMS KNEES UP! A night of interactive 1940s themed entertainment in the heart of one of Leeds’ best known heritage pubs.

Hosted by Mrs Ossett, Charwoman at the Cardigan Arms, expect a night of traditional sing-a-long tunes, with some more ‘contemporary’ tunes thrown in for good measure. Musicians will support the rowdy and raucous singing, and a SURPRISE GUEST ACT will take you back to a time when a pint cost 11 pence. (No, the bar won’t be serving at 1940s prices).

Run of the Mill History is a project by historical interpreter and performer Jude Kershaw showcasing the lives of working class and minority communities throughout history. Don’t forget to follow our Instagram for casting calls and events.


This event is held in the function room which is up a flight of stairs. The ground floor can be accessed step free from street level. As this event is held in a heritage building, there is no lift, but a ground floor toilet is available. Ear plugs will be available. The function room does not has a hearing aid loop and the event in unamplified. Song sheets will be available on each table and can be requested in large print. A ‘quiet table’ will be set aside for people who might not want to engage directly with the performers, a small number of fidget toys will be included.
