How to get to Kirkstall Festival

posted 12 Jul 2012, 13:33 by Steve Harris   [ updated 14 Jul 2019, 11:13 ]

With the weather being as it has recently it is very likely that parking for the festival will be very restricted. Please also note that this year Vesper Lane will be closed to through traffic.
