The Winter Westival 2016 organising team is beavering
away preparing festive treats for the community around Braunstone Gate and
The street festival will take place on Braunstone Gate, on the evening of Saturday 26th November inside venues, and on Sunday 27th November, 11 - 6pm on the street. The festive market stalls are booking up with local crafts people and more, the stage slots are almost full with local bands and performers, bars and restaurants are sparkling up their menus for the weekend, community groups are planning crafty activities for the kids, and the team has several other exciting treats up their sleeves!
Along with a fantastic group of local volunteers, many organisations are giving much needed organisational and financial support, and will be offering things on the day. Here's just a taste: Tesco will be giving out free mince pies (as well as their car park), Natterjacks will be hosting the stage, Sports Pad will be offering free goes on their simulators, local churches will be carolling, and there's talk of a festive beer being brewed for the occasion! As well as this, there's behind-the-scenes support from The West End Brewery, Malcom Murphy Hair, Sustrans, Leicester City Council and The People's Health Trust.
