Breeze on Tour

Breeze events are run by Leeds City Council to offer something for all 0 to 19 years to do during the school holidays. Breeze on Tour offers a variety of activities from arts, crafts and multimedia workshops, sports activities, information, a performance tent and a large range of inflatables such as obstacle courses, rock climbers, challenge games and sporting inflatables as well as an under 5 play section. Breeze on Tour is split into 5 zones; Play, Sport, Challenge, Info, Art and Performance. Offering something for all tastes. Please see our FAQ below for details of height restrictions in each inflatables zone.
 
PLEASE NOTE: No dogs are allowed (except assistance dogs) at Breeze on Tour or Mini Breeze.
 
Any children wearing face paint will not be allowed on the inflatables.

Mini Breeze

 
Mini Breeze is a mini version of Breeze on Tour (so suitable for ages 0 - 19 years), hosted in smaller parks for local communities, with inflatables, arts crafts and a media workshop bus which are all free, plus refreshments stalls and some fairground rides which you will need money for if you want to use them. These are funded by the communities themselves, usually through Area Committees.  
We may be running a Mini Breeze near to where you live check back here or on our facebook page for where we'll be popping up! Mini Breeze is suitable for all young people aged 0 to 19 years.

What's on at Breeze on Tour

Click to expandHeight Restrictions

We try and offer activities for all ages from 0 to 19. There is a Play Zone for under 5s and a variety of workshops to suit all the older age ranges.

We have height restrictions on some of our inflatables (see below) and some other activities for safety reasons, these are to keep your children and other children safe. Our inflatable equipment comes with guidelines within which we can be flexible to some degree by matching the heights, not ages, of those going on the equipment. We have large, prominent height boards on entry and dotted around the site, explaining the heights and zones to inform families of the zones and to ensure they do not waste time queuing for inflatables catering for a different height.
 
At busy times there will be always be some queues and we try to manage these as well as we can, including introducing other activities and sporting activities with parents.

We colour co-ordinate our Zones for the inflatables as follows:

GREEN FLAGS - Tot Breezers – under 1m (age 3* and under)
RED FLAGS - Family Breezers – 1m+ (age 4+*) please note in this zone at times staff will make a judgement on height ranges participating at the same time on some of the inflatables
BLUE FLAGS - Big Breezers 1.2m+ (age 8+*) - BLUE FLAGS
Hangar – over 132cm (age 9+*)

Heights are worked out from the 50th percentile of age ranges (average height for ages).

*Ages are approximate.

All activities checked and suitable for heights outlined in our risk assessments.

Click to expandWill there be a Breeze event near me?

Breeze on Tour events are planned in large parks strategically across the city. A lot of thought and planning goes into their locations, from suitability at the venue to access, to enable as many people to come from across Leeds. This year we have moved some of our locations to allow young people who did not attend last year to come this year.
 
Mini Breeze events are funded by localities themselves, usually through Community Committees. Therefore we work with those areas who commission us to find the most suitable venue.
 
Sadly not all areas commission Breeze events so we are sorry if we didn't make it to where you live, keep an eye out on the website as new dates go up right up to the start of the summer holidays.
