Child Friendly Leeds Live | Andy and the Odd Socks Live

Child Friendly Leeds Live | Andy and the Odd Socks Live

Last year, 350 children and young people entered a competition to share their ideas on ‘Making Leeds city centre more child friendly’. One of the winning suggestions was to bring a ‘children’s festival’ to Leeds.

Child Friendly Leeds have been working closely with the Leeds City Council events team, the Breeze team and a range of other partners to turn Will’s idea into a reality, and create ‘Child Friendly Leeds Live’. This exciting summer event will take over Millennium Square for one day in August, and children and their families are invited to come along and experience the fun of the festival season in a safe and welcoming space.

Headlining the festival will be star of CBeebies Andy Day and his band ‘Andy and the Odd Socks'.  Hosted by former CBeebies presenter Alex Winters, the event will also feature the ‘Breeze has Talent’ competition, which showcases local young talent.  Festival goers can support the young people as they perform on stage in front of a panel of industry professional judges.

The festival will also include exciting performances from DAZL and The Rainbow Factory. In addition to this, there will be a whole range of fun, free activities for children to enjoy around the square including arts, crafts, sport, sensory play and much more.

The event is made up of two separate, almost identical three-hour ‘Child Friendly Leeds Live’ sessions. The first session will run from 10am to 1pm, and the second will run from 2pm until 5pm.

Additional information

The event is for children aged 12 and under, and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Babies (12 months old and under) are admitted for free when accompanying an adult and child.
