 Summer School Holidays


Summer Holiday Events at Leeds Museums and Galleries
26 July –  4 September 2017 


Summer 2017 starts here!

Enjoy everything from a vintage extravaganza to a pirate party at our 9 venues across Leeds during the school holidays. .

Keep little ones busy with free crafts, trails and family activities, from an enchanted forest theme at Leeds City Museum to storybook characters at Abbey House and help make a miniature Yorkshire at Leeds Industrial Museum. Discover dazzling silver centrepieces at Temple Newsam or explore our museum store, Leeds Discovery Centre at special Wednesday workshops.

Museums aren’t just for rainy days! Throughout August get creative with Leeds Art Gallery at the new Park Here and Play Festival. You’re invited to a Party on Pirate Island on 13 August, when Thwaite Mills is besieged by treasure hunters!

Try tasty street food at the monthly markets in the picturesque Kirkstall Abbey cloisters or celebrate Yorkshire Day at Lotherton with a market, amazing animals, and a special guest from The Great British Bake Off!

Whatever the weather, we have your holiday plans covered.
