  1. James Brown and Maggie Horner says:

    Hi, Is it possible to book a trade stall at this event?

  2. Sara says:

    For those of us who’d love to come but don’t use Facebook – will you post tickey details on twitter as well?

    • Julia says:

      This is a great point and not one we’d considered. Thanks for flagging – we’ll definitely use Twitter more so in the future.

  3. Becky says:

    Hi. I’m looking to purchase tickets for both the fiesta and the cinema also. I can only seem to find the link for the fiesta only.

    When these tickets are released will these be the option to purchase both within the link?

    Also could you please let me know the timing for the day (for the fiesta and cinema too) as there are conflicting times on Facebook. Some say 7:30 but on here it says 6:30??

    • Julia says:

      Hopefully this has been sorted now? The link for fiesta and cinema is – if it’s not showing on the first page, scroll down to the second. The timings will be on your ticket – 6.30pm start. Thanks.

  4. Helen says:

    Hi we have our tickets. Will there be face painting there or do we need to have it done prior

  5. Sally says:

    Hi – are you doing a day time family event as well or just the evening events? Thanks, Sally

  6. Margaret says:

    Is the Friday showing of lost boys sold out or is it just the early bird film tickets?


    • Julia says:

      Hi, the Lost Boys cinema ticket has now sold out

      We do have a limited number of tickets available for the Fiesta only for that night.

      Alternatively, we’re showing From Dusk till Dawn on the Saturday night.

  7. Hi there are dogs allowed on Friday for the fiesta

  8. Tom says:

    Hi there, i was wondering if it would be ok to come and take photographs for my portfolio and university project.

  9. Amy Tarbotton says:

    Are you able to bring your own food and drink on site to the fiesta?

    • Julia says:

      We ask people not to bring their own food and drink to the Fiesta. We have a number of food and drink stalls catering for all tastes. Hope that helps.

  10. Jenny says:


    I recently signed up to a day of dead festival in Leeds , these were free tickets through fatsoma. It said the venue was to be confirmed, in just wondering if these are legit and will get us entrance to kirkstall abbey?
