People of all ages will be able to enjoy a variety of festive refreshments, from hot apple punch to hot chocolate, to accompany their favourite Christmas cuisine thanks to the bar’s ‘bring your own food’ policy.

Ellie Way's Leeds Travel Posters

It might be tricky to get away this summer but Ellie Way's Leeds Travel posters are a great reminder of why there's no place like home. 

Ellie initially started designing posters of the local settings on her ‘one walk a day’ around Wakefield during the first national lockdown in 2020 to encourage positive conversations during an uncertain time and connect people to the places that were on their doorstep.
