No need to queue in the traffic to get to the beach this summer; as City Beach returns to Millennium Square for a second summer season. Organised by International Funfairs in partnership with Leeds City Council, our popular city centre venue will be transformed.
Taking centre stage will be a traditional Ferris Wheel, overlooking the real sand area surrounded by boardwalk style decking, complete with deck chairs and palm trees!
There'll be a wide range of themed activities, rides and stalls for all the family to enjoy, including Bamboo Bungee trampolines, Tropical Jungle adventure funhouse, beach slide, Waikiki cars, Seaside Carousel and water attraction favourites - Pirate Boats, Aqua Balls and the all NEW water cannons. For those of a more adventurous nature, a number of thrill rides will also be on offer including the Crazy Wave and Beach Buggie dodgems.
A new feature this year will be a programme of weekend entertainment on the beach, including various beach games and activities organised by the Heart Angels, plus a series of live Punch and Judy shows each Saturday and Sunday from 12.00noon. Our very own City Beach Radio, courtesy of Heart, will be playing a wide range of popular hits and summer tunes throughout the day on Saturday 9 August and Saturday 23 August.
Visitors will be able to sample a selection of delicious treats and refreshments including a beach style BBQ swing grill, traditional seaside sweets and an old fashioned ice cream parlour. Existing street café areas will operate as normal within themed licenced areas.
Opening times: 10.30am to 7.00pm
