New Market SQ

Leicester’s October Fest concludes our events this year on the New Market Place Square. We finish with a flourish as music and comedy accompany some very good food and drink in a rollicking weekend of entertainment.

Our house band the Bohemianauts bring their unique song list of unrequited dread with upbeat interludes from a range of other musical genre. Undercover seating area so that rain will not stop play and prize for best fancy dress costume.

This event will now be free to enter!

We will be in touch to arrange a refund for those who have purchased early bird tickets
