Speaking to Stuart Dixon, owner of both Doghouse and 212 Bar, he said: “It was our idea and then we thought we couldn’t do it alone over Jubilee weekend, we so thought it would be interesting to get our neighbors involved.

“It’s the first time we’ve done something like this at [Doghouse]but to [212] we did the Waterfront Festival last year. We hope this goes as planned so we can do more in the future, but that’s ok regardless for all the neighbors [on Kirkgate].”

Local DJs Reeshy, Jamie Barber, Mark Leaf, Josh Demello and more will take to the decks for varied sets of house, disco, funk and soul, powered by Leeds collective ABB Events and their high-end sound system of range.

A barbecue will be in full swing thanks to Wapentake, with an extensive menu of cocktails and spirits available at Pastel all day and all night.

During Saturday’s jubilee celebrations, Marta Gonzalez, director of Doghouse, said: “[Stuart] came up with the idea of ​​having a backyard party with our neighbors because we’ve always had such a good relationship with them.

“It’s a small community on Kirkgate so we all help each other out. Bars, barbers and restaurants, we all know each other and try to help each other out, so it’s been pretty easy [to organise]!”

The Jubilee Party in Kirkgate Court starts Saturday at noon and is free to join. For more information go to nichebarandbagelshop.co.uk.
