A Writer in Headingley

I have lived and worked in Leeds all my life and Headingley has proved to be the perfect base for me for many years. It also provides me with inspiration for my writing every day. In fact, Fat Friends the TV drama and brand new musical (premiering at Leeds Grand Theatre on 7th November!) is set in Headingley.
The centre of Headingley is so vibrant and has so much to offer the local community. I love meeting friends for coffee at Art & The Secret Garden Cafe and I regularly dine at Trio with my family. There is plenty of green belt land for me to walk my little dog - Happy - and to meet other dog walkers, ramblers and young people enjoying the recreational areas.
Headingley has a huge variety of community services, it’s close to beautiful countryside and has excellent links into the city - there’s nowhere else I’d rather live!
