Food & Drink

No city eats like our city. In spring, the annual Leeds Indie Food festival celebrates our thriving independent scene, and Autumn sees beer aficionados flocking to Leeds International Beer Festival. There’s always a tasty surprise around the corner, like critically acclaimed fine dining from The Owl, right in the heart of bustling Kirkgate Market. Special menus, pop-ups, tasters and tours. Farmers markets, cookery classes, celebrations and demonstrations. Vegans and veggies, carnivores and the plain curious. So fill your plate.


As a consequence of the Coronavirus and following Government advice, all events taking place in April and May have been cancelled. You can look for inspiration for when you’re next visiting Leeds throughout this website and we will update our events as and when restrictions are lifted.
