Alongside a stellar music line-up, headlined by James and Primal Scream, the family-focussed festival will play host to a mouth-watering line-up of top food stars on the John Lewis Chef Demo Stage. Top of the bill is author and chef Olia Hercules, cooking from from her award winning book of traditional Ukrainian cooking Mamushka.

John Lewis, who are set to open their northern flagship store at Victoria Gate later this year, will also be on hand with an interactive Cookery School hosted by MasterChef semi-finalist (and Leeds local) Elizabeth Cottam, so festival-goers will be able to get properly hands on in the kitchen.

Harvey Goldsmith CBE is proud to be bringing OnRoundhay to Leeds: “The OnRoundhay Festival follows the success of OnBlackheath in London. I am delighted that we are launching this festival with John Lewis to celebrate the opening of their new store in Leeds. Roundhay Park is a great venue and the day will be full of activity for all the family. There is a great line up of artists and chefs as well as fun with Puffin World of Stories.”
