Friends of Middleton Park

Coming Events

The Middleton Park Visitor Centre Cafe is open

Not all the events listed below are organised by the Friends. The City council Parks and Countryside Rangers organise events in Middleton park, as well as in other Parks etc around Leeds.

Many other organisations now use the Park as the venue for their events. Unfortunately, sometimes, these other events are not listed below, for which we apologise.

The Friends of Middleton Park are always in need of more volunteers. Please get in touch if you would like to help out in any way possible.

All Events will be in or near the Middleton Park Visitor Centre, unless stated otherwise.
