Leeds Diary Dates: April 2016

So the clocks have gone forward – does that mean it’s officially spring now? I’m tempted to think yes; when I came back from my 2-week holiday last Sunday it was distinctly less freezing cold than when I left, and even when I was stood waiting for a taxi at 4am this morning I had a little smile to myself when I realised I was barely shivering.
