Leeds Rhinos Foundation and Yorkshire Cricket Foundation will be teaming up this summer to host the annual Children's Day as Headingley Carnegie Stadium opens its gates for Leeds' biggest free family festival

Children's Day, which has been held annually at Headingley Carnegie Stadium since 2008, will see thousands of families across the region attend the day-long event, which brings together a host of organisations from Yorkshire every year to provide a memorable day of activities for children.

Another big draw for fans of both sporting organisations will be appearances from the Leeds Rhinos squad throughout the day.

The event is supported each year by a number of partners including long term partner the Garry Chappelow Memorial fund along with local organisations such as Leeds City Council and West Yorkshire Police and will also be supported by new associate partner Nando's restaurant in 2017.

The event also brings together a host of child friendly organisations providing activities on the day including Eureka, The Rainbow Factory and The Works Skatepark with Yorkshire Cricket and Leeds Rhinos giving children the chance to practice their skills with coaching and skills zones.

Returning this year for the event will also be the popular junior sports tournaments for community teams from the city, which will take place on the famous Headingley Carnegie Stadium cricket and rugby pitches.

Leeds Rhinos Foundation will be showcasing the impact of their Rugby League Development Plan and Sky Try delivery with special under 7s tournament including a number of newly formed teams in the club ambassador scheme enjoying matches on the pitch.

Children's Day 2017 takes place on Sunday 16th July. The gates for the event will open at 10.30am and close at 4pm; admission is completely free for everyone, as are the activities when inside the ground.
