Flying High Jazz Picnic
1.30 - 5.30pm Sunday 6 September
Gledhow Sports and Social Club
Gledhow Ln, Roundhay, Leeds LS8 1NQ, Off Gledhow Lane (near Little Switzerland)
The Gledhow sport field is a hidden gem in our area with plenty of space for social distancing. We've done lots of planning with the folk who run the club and feel confident that we can safely put on a live performance there. So on Sunday 6 Sept we will be having 3 bands starting at 1.30pm and finishing at 5.30pm. Bring a picnic, don't forget your tickets and find a spot where you feel comfortable. Hopefully the sun will shine!
Please don't bring alcoholic drinks onto the field. The bar will be open for the whole event.
