Stall bookings for the 2014 festival are now CLOSED - we are FULL !!
As usual the safety of all of our visitors, the many stallholders and other participants is paramount. Please note that again we had some unauthorised vehicle parking and movement of vehicles within the site during the event. You must arrive early to set up your stalls and we encourage use of the free car park just across the road. Disabled drivers are able to park just inside the entrance gate. Please follow our marshalls instructions at all times. If you wish to be in the same area as last year please state on your form. As regular stall holders are aware we actually allow 3 metres width per stall and this year ALL additional frontage will be charged at the same rate.
Leeds Inspired (www.leedsinspired.co.uk) will be at Kirkstall Festival with our pop up green screen to film festival goers, stall holders, performers and anyone else who want to be part of ‘Momentous’, a large scale projection that will transform the entire façade of Civic Hall into an animated mechanical clock for 3 nights in early October (it will form the centrepiece to this year’s Light Night).
You will then feature in the projection, on the quarter hour people will be revealed and their movements form the activity shown - chain reactions from person to person. So a ball might be bounced by one person, to be deflected
by another putting up an umbrella, which in turn will drop water for someone tending their plants and so on.
Come and find us! Be part of Momentous.
It can take five minutes to film a simple single action, or we can spend longer working on a sequence of actions between a group of people.
The projection will be created by Illuminos artists Matt and Rob Vale who have previously studied in the city at Leeds Metropolitan University and University of Leeds. To make sure that we include as many people as possible in the projection Matt and Rob will be filming at locations across the city throughout the summer.
The line up includes:
This promises to be a roller coaster of laughs and thrills - it will have you grinning for the rest of the day.
Stall booking forms are now available for the 2013 Festival, Click '2013 Stall Bookings' under Navigation on the left.
For more information about stalls please contact Fiona, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember all Kirkstall Festival organisers are volunteers working in their own time. (more contact details available in the Stall Application Pack)
A free car park will be available at
Kirkstall Festival on Saturday 11th July.
We would however ask you to consider public transport if you can as it will really help us on the day, and will make your day easier (it gets VERY busy with cars).
Please follow the signage and instructions from the VOLUNTEERS running the car park.
The festival is run entirely by volunteers, and so is the car park. They will be working VERY hard on Saturday to help you arrive safely and as quickly as possible so why not wind down your window and tell them what a good job they’re doing!
See you all on Saturday!
Inspection of the ground on the festival site for the heavier vehicles took place to day and we are good to go!
2012 Stall Booking Application Packs are now available here, book early to secure prime locations and avoid disappointment.
