Highlights of the spring season include our ongoing participation in Leicester Comedy Festival, which is celebrating its 30th year as the largest comedy festival in Europe. From the 9 – 26 February we will be hosting over 2- incredible acts ranging from laugh-out-loud stand-up comedy acts to intriguing discussions about the world of performance today.
Alongside this, SPARK Festival will also be returning to the centre this February! An unforgettable arts experience for young people aged 0-13 across the city, we will be showcasing three incredible acts for families of all ages, including 14/48 Takeover, Choogh Choogh and Underwater. February is going to be an incredible month for all.
As well as continuing the atmospheric and interactive Playing in Wonderland by Mohammad Barrangi, this season launches two new exhibitions in our galleries. Acclaimed artist Jas Singh presents hippocratic/hypocrite, an inclusive digital arts installation that explores the mechanics of identity and the narratives that surround it, 11 February – 16 April.
