Join Performing Arts LeicesterShire!

Performing Arts Leicester (PAL) is a partnership set up by a group of venues and organisations in Leicester. Its mission is to positively change the perception of Leicester through its performing arts offer. Diversity and Quality are central to its work focussing on the following four main strands:

  • Networking
  • Professional development
  • Marketing & promotion
  • Research 
In the last four years PAL has been responsible for drawing in funds for professional development and project work of around £90k. PAL has also commissioned De Montfort University to carry out an economic impact study of the performing arts sector in Leicester and coordinated culture debates.

The PAL partnership is ever evolving. It is led by an elected strategy group of four people. The next elections for this group will be in May.
