The Tetley

Leeds Den Building Festival

Saturday 3 & Sunday 4 Sept 2016

The acclaimed Leeds Den Building Festival is BACK for its third year – and bigger than ever.

Join 100s of other families and groups from across the city and beyond and build your dream den. Get creative and create a castle, pirate ship, train, house, spaceship, whatever! All materials are provided – although you’re welcome to also bring your own too as long as we deem them safe for the site. There’s a £50 top prize for the team who creates the most collaborative, innovative and impressive den as well as runner up prizes.
To cover the considerable event costs, we’re asking participants to contribute £2.50 per person this year. Discount group tickets of 4 places for the price of 3 (£7.50 total) are also available. Children under the age of five can go free within a booked group. Also, a number of free spaces are reserved for those facing financial hardship.

Some tickets may be available on the day on a waiting list basis for £4 per head, however we strongly recommend pre-booking to avoid disappointment. The event sold out long before the event last year, and we’re expecting the same this year, so please do book ahead.

Leeds Den Building Festival is organised by Together for Peace, The Tetley and the Den Building Experiment. Thanks to Leeds City Council for their support via the Play Enabling Grant scheme. Thanks also all the in-kind sponsors, including: Woodrup Cycles, Halfords, The Bike Shop Leeds, HW Martin Waste, Eiger Studios Symingtons and SLATE
