RESCHEDULED EVENT DUE TO THE ARCTIC CONDITIONS OF THE «BEAST FROM THE EAST»
The weekend will be as follows:
Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th March.
Doors open at 10am on Saturday, 11am Sunday all stalls open and trading up to 5pm.
Professor Elemental will now not be there on the Saturday after all — his gig has been rescheduled to Friday 30th March.

The Captain of the Lost Waves Shaun T Hunter will be roaming around the museum entertaining from 12pm on the Sunday for around 45 minutes and maybe have a stall selling his merchandise and signing things.
On Sunday only at 2pm there will be a flying display from one of Amy Jo Lawrance's owls from her Flying Squadron facebook.com/TheFlyingSquadron.
Recruiting for the Coffee Jousting (exclusive to LSM!) commences earlier than usual — the tournament takes place at 3pm so sign up from 1pm.
This on the Saturday only as our wonderful hosts (Paul the vicar with his daughter Bethany Wheelhouse) have to work on the Sunday. On the positive side, it means instead of there being medals for winner and 2nd place (gold and silver) we have two bronze medals for the semi final pair of runners up.
Captain Cumberpatch's Curious Creations donates the medals for the prizewinners and ones also for the Coffee Jousting Beanmasters (the host).
Paul also has been working on a steampunk interactive game so hopefully will be launching that on the day as well.
Stephen Jennison-Smith will be running a game of 'In Her Majesty's Name' steampunk combat wargame on the Sunday upstairs in the board room.
The gorgeous 1920's cinema on the 2nd floor (that's one down from the entrance level!) will be showing various steampunk films — titles to be confirmed. Each film is around 90 minutes long and will be shown at 11.30 and 2pm each day.
Information about the films and anything else can be found here:
Don't forget, if you attend on the Saturday, retain your ticket as it will gain you free admission on the Sunday — worthwhile as the traders won't be the same on both days as around 1/3 only do one day.
There will be 50 traders on two floors which will not be all the same people on both days.
There will be a tombola run to raise money for a named charity which all the traders will be donating to.
A vintage tearoom will be there for the weekend selling lovely homemade cake and cuppas as well as a hot food vendor or two. (tbc). Plus we have a pub!
Don't forget you need to pay admission to the museum itself as you will be able to see all the exhibitions there as well. If you come along on the Saturday, retain your admission receipt as it will gain you free entry on the Sunday.
Customers will be paying normal admission to the Industrial Museum itself to be able to access the traders as you will be mixed in with the whole building, the displays and the layout. These prices are correct at time of going to press (March 2017) but their admission prices now are:
Child £2.00 Children under 5 years are free.
Family (up to 2 adults + 3 kids) £9.00
Group: The concessionary rate applies per person for pre-booked groups of 10 or more
Membership: Admission is free to members of the Leeds Art Fund, Friends of Leeds City Museums and the National Arts Collection Fund.

Dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome at this museum, both in the buildings and out in the grounds. Please do keep an eye on your pet at all times so that they do not «mark» anywhere, be it the walls of the building or a trader's tablecloth. Also ensure you have the necessary poop bags/tissues/wet wipes etc to clean up any «accidents».
Also please be aware there are no cash point machines on the site — the nearest one would be if you walked back up to Town Street or over the foot bridge to Cardigan Fields and there is one in the wall of Hollywood Bowl which charges you for the privilege.
You can get to Armley Mills by getting on a number 15 bus from the town centre. There is a bus stop just outside the main doors of the train station in Leeds centre and the number 15 bus drops you off opposite the carpark of Armley Mill on Canal Road.
All traders are being contacted directly to advise of the change of date.
Pitch fees will be carried forward to another date if unable to make the new date so this may end up with a few pitches being available.
