History

The first Leeds Meet took place on 28th April 2001 as part of the NorthernFurs meet rotation, with a very small group of fewer than 10 people gathering together for the first meetup in the city.

Quickly establishing themselves within the NorthernFurs group, these Leeds Meets continued to be held at least once every 6 months for over a decade, with numbers steadily increasing over time.

We started holding regular monthly furry meets on the third weekend of the month on 16 June 2012 after a number of successful mid-week pubbages proved there was an interest in a more regular gathering.

Over the years the meets have had several people involved with their running. Since October 2007, Leeds Meets have been run by Wolfie and Lupestripe, with additional people being brought in to form the first committee in May 2017.

Leeds Furs at Leeds Pride

There has always been a strong link between the furry fandom and the LGBT community so we are proud to announce that there will be an official Leeds Furs presence for the very first time at the city’s Pride event later this year…
