Arena, Roundhay Park (Roundhay)
Colour image28th April 2005. Image shows the arena in Roundhay Park, a hollow area which in the time of Thomas Nicholson in the early to mid nineteenth century, had originally been intended as a lake. A scheme carried out in 1894, using the labour of unemployed people, created a sporting arena here with cycle track. In more recent years it has been the venue for pop concerts attracting huge audiences. For instance, the Rolling Stones played here in 1982 in front of an audience od 120,000 and at the Love Parade in July 2000 there were 300,000 people. Other artists who have performed at the arena over the years are Bruce Springsteen, Genesis, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Simple Minds, U2 and Robbie Williams. In the background, right, is Hill 60 named in memory of those Leeds men who lost their lives in the First World War battles, near Hill 60, Ypres.

Bandstand, Roundhay Park (Roundhay) (11 comments)
Black & White image1911 This bandstand, octagonal in shape, was situated between Middle Walk and the Carriage drive. It had a decorative, wrought iron spire above a cupola and dome. The bandstand was raised to give a good view to crowds, as seen here, who flocked to listen to the regular Sunday concerts. The raised construction allowed for deckchair storage beneath. It fell into a state of disrepair and was taken down in the early 1960s. Roundhay Park Mansion is visible in the background.

Boar Lane, looking West, showing queue for Roundhay trams (City Centre) (2 comments)
Black & White image29th May 1944. Looking west along Boar Lane showing crowds of people completely blocking the right-hand causeway as far back as we can see, queueing for trams to take them to Roundhay Park. The occasion was a Whit Monday Bank Holiday during the Second World War, which for many must have been a rare opportunity to get away for a day out and forget the troubles of wartime, heading for the baths, Waterloo Lake, or to watch the cricket, as other images on Leodis show. J. Jones, costumiers and furriers, is on the right, followed by Holy Trinity Church and C&A. This image was digitised as part of the ‘Future Prospects of Urban Parks’ project, conducted by the University of Leeds in partnership with Leeds City Council, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (grant number: AH/N001788/2).
