I Buongustai are feeding our artists again!

We’re really pleased to announce that local independent foodies, I Buongustai, will be serving up a slice of their fantastic Italian Street food to feed our artists on Friday 6th May.

They’ll be launching a new menu too on Thursday 28th April, so head on down to 82 Granby Street to sample some of the food we’ll be tucking into on the 6th! We recommend the Polpettine!

14/48 Takeover is back Saturday 4th June

It’s 14/48 for all the family!

As part of The Spark Arts for children festival, 14/48 Leicester are giving 12 young writers the opportunity to create 4 short plays with the help of a team of professional writers. Across 4 days (Tuesday 31st May to Friday 3rd June – 10am to 3pm each day), the young writer’s creative skills will be stretched and developed through a series of fun exercises and activities. At the end of day 4, the 4 new plays created will be placed into sealed envelopes and selected at random by a team of professional theatre makers before staging them using the usual time-limited 14/48 process. Book a space now for just £40 for all 4 days, including lunch!
