The Christmas Fayre at the Holbeck Underground Ballroom is back!

We’re delighted to announce that there will be dozens of stalls featuring food, drinks, jewellery and a multitude of crafty items and vintage goods – perfect for those looking to get ahead with the Christmas shopping!

We’ll have hot food available in the form of the ever popular hog roast, delicious vegetarian Moroccan stew, mulled wine and all the usual cakes and treats.

There will be live music from an array of wonderful performers including singer songwriter Ruby Mackintosh and Some Like it Ossett playing a ukulele Christmas disco set. There’s a chance to sing your favourite Christmas carols, festive story-telling and a whole load of yuletide activities including a fundraising raffle with a prize donated by our friends at Swillington Farm.

Slung Low’s Christmas Fayre will be part of The Holbeck Christmas Market Trail on Saturday 6th December with the Hope House Christmas Market (The Northern Monk Refectory, The Old Flax Store LS11 9YS) and the Holbeck Christmas Market at St Matthew’s Community Centre (St Matthew’s Street, Leeds LS11 9NR). All are welcome, and we look forward to welcoming old friends and new faces at this year’s Christmas Fayre.

'I have put Holbeck in my address for the last two years but today was the first time I discovered the heart of it - I had no idea about the pubs, social clubs, quaint back to back terraces and history that makes up the real Holbeck, south of the canal.  A big thanks to Slung Low for opening my eyes to a place I have claimed to call home.'  - Audience Member
