Leicester Arts & Culture – Mayor Debate Part 3

Wednesday 12th October, 7pm

Peter Williams Lecture Theatre, David Wilson library, University of Leicester

Come and debate the role of arts & culture with Leicester City Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby. Much has happened since the first debate back in May 2011:

  • Leicester has an elected City Mayor
  • The launch of the newly elected Culture Board
  • Discussion around Leicester’s bid for City of Culture
  • The disturbances and riots across the UK
  • A commitment to refresh a cultural strategy for Leicester
But what of the future? Is there clarity around the vision for arts & culture in Leicester and how will we deliver in the current economic climate? What are the priorities for the City and how can we work with the Mayor and his team to make the vision a reality? What is missing and what are the frustrations from the sector?

Information about the panel, speakers and format for the event will be announced soon. Demand for the last 2 events has been enormous so reserve your FREE ticket now by visiting
