Night of Festivals 2014

Next Stop: Leicester 16-17 August 2014                                                

Following the previous success of Night of Festivals Touring in Nottingham and Lincolnshire, the spectacular event moved on to Slough with large crowds engaging and interacting throughout both days at the end of May.

Next it’s the turn of Leicester to experience this exciting event (as apart of the Mayor’s City Festival). Humberstone Gate and the High Street are the key locations where you’ll find the Festival Performance Dome, Storytelling Yurt, Nanoplex Moving Image Gallery, centrepiece Haitian statue, and a whole array of carnival and Samba interventions, happening every half hour through both days.

All Night of Festivals events have free access. You can view the full programme here.

The festival runs from 11am-10pm on Saturday 16th and 11am-5pm on Sunday 17th. There’s something happening all day long for the whole family – bring your wellies and take part in Gumboot Dancing; enjoy family stories from around the world in the Yurt; or simply smile at the spectacle, colour or humour of the costumes!

See you there!
