City Art Walk
Take a wander through Leicester’s Cultural Quarter, taking time to stop and view the street art transforming the surrounding area. The trail starts at the Curve, situated in the heart of St George’s Cultural Quarter, one of the country’s leading producing theatres. Meander past the Athena, one of Leicester’s centres for exhibitions, live music, and events. Wander past The Soundhouse, an independent live music venue, welcoming a mixture of local and touring artists, as well as Leicester Print Workshop, a centre for printmaking. Look out for the dynamic street art, created by local and international creatives transforming the Cultural Quarter. This trail has been brought to you with the help of GraffWerk, the Leicester based street art agency aiming to redefine the visual landscape of the city through the use of street art.
