Mini-Festival lineup

CategoriesFestival 2021

This year Kirkstall Mini-Festival will be a little different to a normal year. There will be performance and stalls, though there’s limited numbers and visitors need to buy tickets.

While the Festival is always family-friendly, this year the focus will be on providing entertainment and games for children. Within the Abbey itself we will have games, stalls, and food. No alcohol will be on sale and no alcohol will be allowed to be brought on site.

There’s four different sessions and visitors might be wondering what makes them different. The following is provisional and may change before the Festival:
