To the opening of Leicester’s Phoenix Square last night – a fantastic new addition to the developing cultural quarter of the city.
Leicester has recently seemed the poor relation in cultural provision in the East Midlands what with the new QUAD arts centre in Derby and Broadway Media Centre and the new Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery in Nottingham.
But in Leicester’s own quiet way a small cultural revolution has taken place in the formerly run down St George’s area of the city. Firstly with the LCB Depot, a hotbed of creative businesses, then with the amazing new theatre, Curve, tucked away close to the city centre – and now a brilliant new cinema and digital arts facility.
More fantastic opportunities for MACE to work with to bring out and showcase the extraordinarily rich screen heritage of the region…
