December ’18 – Leeds Christkindelmarkt

The German Christmas Market brings a little piece of Germany to the heart of the city centre.
Millennium Square has once again transformed into a scenic winter village, with over 40 traditional wooden chalet stalls decorated with festive greenery and twinkling colourful lights. 
There’s something for all the family from the ever popular Christmas carousel; stalls with handcrafted toys, jewellery, festive decorations, specialty food and drink including Stollen and Gingerbread; and the Alp Chalet Bavarian eatery providing a warm and cosy place to sit and enjoy authentic German food and drink.

Red Kites and Buzzards

A reintroduction program for Red Kites began in England and Scotland in 1989, with Yorkshire being the fifth area to see the birds released back into the wild, in 1999. Young birds that had been successfully reared in the Chiltern Hills in South East England were released at the Harewood Estate, and now there are tens of them living in our area. You are guaranteed to see them souring above you whilst you are with us.
