Independent food festival in Leeds returning to city for fifth consecutive year

Leeds Indie Food Festival will be returning from May 9-27 with over 75 events taking place across the city.

There are set to be many collaborations, with exclusive supper clubs, workshops and one-off events from Leeds’ indie scene.

The festival, which is celebrating its fifth year is supported by LeedsBID (Business Improvement District) and Leeds City Council.

The festival is set to be more diverse than ever with returning food stalls alongside new events.

New for 2019, The ‘Bloody Big Brunch’, a partnership with Hey Girls, addresses period poverty with entry fees paid in period products.

Sustainability is also set to be a trend for the event. Alongside plant-based experiences, Citu & The Honest Edibles will be hosting ‘A Sustainable Supper’ and The Real Junk Food Project (TRJFP).

LIF19 will see over 150 collaborations from businesses across the city, presenting 75 innovative events.

A combination of free and ticketed events are available to book now on the Leeds Indie Food website. Venues include: Vice & Virtue Group; Bundobust; Belgrave Music Hall, Below Stairs; Yard & Coop; and Outlaws Yacht Club.
