New Market SQ

Leicester’s October Fest concludes our events this year on the New Market Place Square. We finish with a flourish as film, music, 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, prize for best fancy dress costume and plenty of pub games.

An evening to remember if you can – special early bird discount tickets – student discounts – hurry as numbers are limited.
