It's Sunday — why not finish the weekend in style with a fun day (or night) out?
There's plenty going on across West Yorkshire today — I bet you didn't think you could feed penguins in Leeds, did you?
Here's three ideas for Sunday fun.
- Try quill writing and butter churning at Oakwell Hall: Join the Friends of Oakwell Hall for traditional crafts at the Birstall tourist attraction. Have a go at quill pen writing, making pretty pomanders or even making butter! Activities are free — entrance to the Hall costs
The Friends of Oakwell Hall will be demonstrating traditional crafts in the Hall on the first Sunday of every month. Have a go at quill pen writing, making pomanders or even butter! Activities will be free, though normal Hall admission charges apply: £2.50 for adults, £1 for children.
- Step back into the swinging sixties at the Grand: The sixties were recently voted the defining British decade - and tonight you can step back in time and enjoy big names including The Searchers, Spencer Davis, PJ Proby, The Pacemakers and more performing their greatest hits at Leeds Grand Theatre. Performances will be held at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets cost £28.50-£30.40 — click here to book. (Sadly Gerry Marsden, of Pacemakers fame, has been forced to withdraw from the tour for health reasons.
Feed penguins at Harewood House: Yes, you read that right - you can get up close and personal with the black and white birds at Harewood House, Leeds. The estate keeps Humboldt Penguins and feeds them on whitebait and fish similar in size to their natural diet — and you can help the keepers serve their supper! Participants must be ten or over, and it costs £10. To book your penguin feeding place, call the Harewood Information Centre on 0113 218 1000.
