Children’s Gala 2018 – 2nd September, 2pm.

We continue with the Crompton Parkinson’s tradition of an annual Children’s Gala in the Park – this year is the sixth Gala run by FOPP, and will be attended by the Lord and Lady Mayoress of Leeds.

The theme will be Fairy Tales,  so get out those Aesop’s Fables, Hans Christian Anderson, Brother’s Grimm, or Traditional English, Irish, Scottish Welsh or Yorkshire Tales for inspiration.   We want to see a Park full of dwarfs, sprites, boggarts, dragons, lost souls, mermaids, giants, unicorns, witches, warlocks, trolls, goblins, fairy godmothers, talking toys, fantastic beasts,  questing heroes, and inquisitive heroines.
