Leeds Indie Food Festival, 9-27 May 2019

With details of how to become a Leeds Indie Food patron for the event in 2019:

#LIF19 - Hello from Leeds Indie Food

Happy December. You’re probably prepping for the onslaught of tasty food and booze we call Christmas, but we’re getting in touch to secure one weekend in your diary for next year: Leeds Indie Food 2019!

It is all rather black and white over here (for now) and we will be announcing the new colours for #LIF19 and the first events in January! Which is MEGA but we want you to remember the dates - next year’s Leeds Indie Food will happen 9th-27th May.

Event submissions are open for the venues, so we look forward to seeing all of those exciting supper clubs, pop-ups and collab ideas flooding into our mailbox. Let the drooling commence...

Are you an indie Patron?

We are proud to report a new way to get involved with the amazing indie food scene; Leeds Indie Food Patrons. We will reveal the brand as soon as we can!

An extension of the LIF Passport, LIF Patrons aims to make Leeds Indie Food about more than just the amazing two-and-a-bit weeks each year. That collaborative spirit lives on in Leeds beyond the festival, and we wanted a way for both foodies and food providers to tap into it.

This is an annual Membership, running from January to December. It’ll see you get: the LIF Passport, access to new venue openings and indie food chats throughout the year, a Patron pin badge, free beer at #EatNorth and our other events - but it also goes into a pot to help all those aspiring local indies who are in start-up mode. We want even more, even better food on our Leeds indie scene, and sometimes providers need an initial leg-up. You can be their Patron.

We’re announcing the Patrons scheme with a special deal for early birds: become a Patron for just £40. Click the link below! 


For 2019, if you don't fancy becoming a Patron, we are still offering you the chance to purchase a #LIF19 passport. You can enjoy priority access to events, discounted tickets and an even bigger collaboration menu for you to go around and collect stamps with. This is valid during the festival dates. This year, the price will be £15 (includes delivery, our chosen charity donation and some exclusive events).

These are on sale right now! click the button below and remember these are sent out in April 2019. 

Look beyond LIF - Chow Down and #EatNorth

2018 was a BIG year for us, and an amazing foodie year for Yorkshire, with Chow Down festival at Halifax’s Piece Hall being a real jewel in the crown. This monthly market ran through the summer, bringing indie street food, craft ale, cocktails, live music and activities to Halifax, all curated by Leeds Indie Food. An astounding 120,000 people came down to enjoy those sunny summer days with us, proving that LIF is not just for May!
Leeds Indie Food is prepping to fly the flag for Leeds’ amazing independents once again in May 2019, and we’re planning to make it bigger and better than ever before, with more citywide collaborations and specials to sink your chops into, as well as some truly once-in-a-lifetime events.

Keep an eye on our newsletters for all the info in the run-up to the main event in May, plus get hints on those unique and sought-after events, and be first in the know for early bird ticket sales.
