Little Amal walks in Leeds for World Refugee Day

Monday 20th June – 6pm – 8pm Briggate and Millenium Square


After spending the day in Bradford, Amal will pop up on Briggate around 6pm, and walk through the city to Millennium Square arriving there about 8pm. With music, performances and activities along the way if you join her on her journey.

A little girl on a BIG journey, Little Amal is the giant puppet at the heart of ‘The Walk’. Since July 2021 she has travelled over 8,000km in support of refugees.

The 3.5 metre-tall living artwork of a young Syrian refugee child has walked across Turkey, Greece, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, the UK, the Netherlands, Poland and Ukraine to focus attention on the urgent needs of young refugees.

One year on from leaving her home in Syria, Amal will walk again in the UK this June during #RefugeeWeek.

Between 19-27 June she will visit 10 towns and cities across England meeting friends old and new, sharing her message of resilience and hope with anyone who has been forced to leave their homes.
