The best things to do in and around Leeds this week | 3 – 9 June 2024

It’s the first full week of June so let’s make it a belter.

The bank holiday weekend is behind us, we’ve welcomed a new month with open arms, and it’s really starting to feel like summer now.

Finding it a bit tricky to pick what to do though? We’ve chosen a few of the best bits for another edition of our ‘what’s on’ this week.

Here’s some of our recommendations.

The popular Hawaii-inspired poke bowl eatery is opening inside Trinity Leeds and to celebrate their highly anticipated opening, they’ll be serving poke bowls for just £1 all day long.

But what is a poke bowl you may ask? Well, allow us to fill you in. Poke, meaning ‘to slice or cut’ in Hawaiian refers to chunks of fresh, raw fish which is tossed over sticky rice and vegetables and topped with umami-packed sauces. Delicious.
