What’s going on in August in Leicester!
If you’ve been fortunate enough to spend lots of time around Leicestershire over the last few months, the chances are you will be well aware of the masses of things that have been going on entertainments wise.
The city centre has been bursting with an exciting range of sporting, arts and cultural events designed to appeal to all ages and tastes.
The fun continues this month and here in the cultural quarter, it’s no exception, so if you’re wondering what’s going on in August in Leicester, then look no further!
Enjoy a big day out!
For an exciting festival vibe, check out the ArtReach Journeys Festival – which features arts and culture from across the globe and it’s based in the heart of the Cultural Quarter on Orton Square over the bank holiday weekend (30/31 August).
You can also enjoy a big day out with the Leicester Belgrave Mela, which takes place on 31 August and features a huge range of Indian themed live music, dance, food, fashion, entertainment, arts, as well as a good healthy dose of Indian culture.
For another great cultural experience, check out the Cosmopolitan Carnival on 29 August – a multi arts festival which features dance troupes, street arts, musicians and film projections that will bring Leicester to life with high energy and vibrant colour.
Or if sporting events are more your thing, SkyRide returns to Leicester on 30 August around Bede Park, for a free cycling celebration, which will see the roads around Leicester closed off to traffic for the day.
An evening at the theatre
If a delightful evening at the theatre is more up your street, you can also check out the last few days of the production of Shakespeare’s Richard III, which is taking place near to us at The Curve Theatre from 25 July – 9 August.
This famous play by the great bard is particularly appropriate to Leicester, following the recent reinternment of King Richard III’s remains at Leicester Cathedral and the play charts his rise to power before the events leading up to his bloody and violent death on Bosworth Battlefield.
