YEADON Town Hall will hold its first wedding fair next month.

The Leodis Bridal Fair will take place on May 23 to showcase suppliers and offer brides and grooms inspiration for their big day.

The Grade II listed building is now also taking bookings for 2022 wedding receptions. The Town Hall has a dedicated team to make every event special, and to give couples the chance to design a bespoke wedding package.

A spokeswoman said: "What better way to get a feel for the Town Hall than to visit its wedding fair? Attendees will be treated to a free glass of Prosecco on arrival (with the Town Hall Tavern open throughout the day to enjoy further refreshments) before being invited to chat to a range of over 20 local wedding suppliers from photographers through to caterers and make up artists.

"A wedding catwalk is planned for both morning and afternoon attendees. Guests are invited to sit back and relax, taking in an inspiring show filled with spectacular ideas and wedding planning advice. Live music is also happening throughout the day, providing a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. The perfect start to wedding planning for any couple."

Tickets cost £5.50. The event is open to over 18s only, and there are a limited supply of tickets available for both the morning, 10am - 12.30pm, and afternoon, 1pm - 3.30pm, slots..

Additional Covid-19 safety measures will be put in place, so guests are being advised that face masks will be mandatory, sanitising stations will be provided on entry and exit and social distancing must be observed.

Jamie Hudson, CEO at Yeadon Town Hall, says: “Everyone needs a bit of positivity at the moment - and what’s better to look forward to than a wedding? We can’t wait to welcome future brides and grooms to the Town Hall on 23rd May and very much hope to be part of their big day soon.”

Yeadon Town Hall has been given a new lease of life since being taken over by a community interest company in April 2019. The Victorian building, which has just celebrated its 140th anniversary, has been undergoing extensive renovations for almost two years, with restoration work continuing during 2020 as it closed under COVID-19 restrictions.

Improvements include a new Town Hall Tavern, refurbished first floor, including the main auditorium, redecorated Airedale and Wharfedale rooms and revamped backstage areas.
