A celebration of European freedom in Leicester

Night of Festivals takes places in locations across Europe as part of a small Cooperation Project entitled "FREEDOM", which was awarded a Creative Europe grant of €184,000 in 2015 and brings together a partnership involving ArtReach (UK), Haus Drei (Germany) and The Fabric Association (Bulgaria). 

From 2-4 October, Night of Festivals will be hosted by Leicester and will offer a platform for new, emerging or established artists, whose work explores themes of freedom and democracy. The night-time carnival programme features a collaboration between Mandinga Arts, Stelzen Art and Oakleaf Creativity; four visual arts plinths including work from Petra Kilian (Germany), Lea Rasovzsky (Romania), Georgi Balabanov (Bulgaria) and Richard Layzell (UK); a Freedom Wall installation; and participative programme.
