There will be over 40 stalls allowing everyone to have a go with activities suitable for all ages. Come along and find out how you can stop the spread of dangerous invaders with The Alien Invasion or join in a celebration of all things keyboard with the Leeds Piano Competition - including playing on a Steinway concert piano for budding pianists.
