Events and New Projects

ew Projects and events

HDT continues to initiate activities to develop and sustain a vibrant local community. Some of these are one off events, some annual and some continuing. Recent examples include:


apple day

Apple Day

An autumn celebration of apples and the fruits of our gardens, allotments and open spaces with an underlying message – to cherish the natural world and step lightly on the planet



Festival of Ideas

Where local venues came alive with conversation, debate, shared ideas and music. The Festival started as an HDT project and is now run as an independent affiliate to HDT –



Table Tennis at HEART

A friendly new project where all ages and abilities are welcome for sociable exercise. Meets most Monday evenings. See HEART website for more information



Talking Heads at Heart

Speakers and discussion exploring society today. Meets second Thursday of the month at 7.30. See their page here or the HEART website for more information –


Headingley Photography Award

Working with Leeds College of Art to run a competition for students taking the best photographs of the area.


Promoting Headingley

Creation of a new cross-sector website will promote a positive image of the area that recognises the many different and complex changes that are now taking place and which more fairly represents the variety of experiences and ambitions of the people who live and work here. It will be both inward and outward facing: for those considering moving into, visiting or investing in Headingley; and for those who already live, run businesses or provide and use services in the area.
