The Love Arts Festival got off to a great start on Tuesday evening with a brilliant art exhibition at The Light, along with a deficit defying, calorie charged cake and cookie decorating extravaganza, and a heart warming session of songs from the lovely and mellifluous Healing Voices Choir.
At this time of year there are so many free or reasonably priced activities to see or get involved with and the annual Light Night 5th October, is one that never disappoints, events start mainly around 5pm and continue until after 12am.
This date should also see the ticket launch for the 26th Leeds Film Festival which takes place 1st to 18th November, there are a planned 100 screenings, concessionary tickets are available and the organisers often employ both paid and voluntary workers.
This year it coincides with the launch of the Love Arts Festival
