Hyde Park Unity Day is a day celebrating the people, culture and community of LS6. We started in 1995 as a reaction to negative media coverage of our area and is now a popular annual event in Leeds 6.
Each year a new team evolves through social contacts and public meetings where any and all are welcome to join in to make a positive contribution of ideas and energy. We have a Management Committee to help us stay on course with budgeting and planning and Area Co-ordinators who organise the diverse areas which make a day everyone can enjoy. Every year there is a core of people that may have been involved in previous years, but we are always on the lookout for new talent. The event is paid for through grants and team fundraising, which has included car boots sales, gypsy and folk music nights, jumble sales, dub sound clashes, sponsored leg waxing and various band nights.
Hyde Park Unity Day is a ‘not for profit’ voluntary association.
