Rocking around the Rocket Trail!

Ground control to Major Tom! With so many amazing songs inspired by space, it’s no surprise that Monday 9th August to Sunday 15th August is MUSIC WEEK here at Rocket Round Leicester!

We have a host of music-related space-tastic fun planned for you!

Busking musicians will be dotted around the Rocket Round Leicester trail on Saturday 14th August, providing a space-themed musical backdrop for all our trail-goers! Come along and listen to some favourites!

Our Twilight Walk, which will take walkers on a route across the Rocket trail, is held on the evening of Saturday 14th and features a number of bands along the way, including the ever-popular Sambando! Join us and dance, shake and groove your way through this 10km walk for LOROS Hospice.

There are plenty of ways you can join in the musical fun too! In our Hub Trail Shop in the Highcross, upper mall, children are invited to paint their own musical block from Monday to Wednesday.

Everyone has a favourite song – come and tell us about yours and graffiti it onto our huge wall hanging at the Trail Hub Shop! Available from Thursday to Sunday.

Many of our artists have taken inspiration from music for their Rocket designs too. Be sure to find them on our Rocket trail! Look out for Moondance, sponsored by GEM radio where the body of the Rocket is a huge jukebox with buttons showing songs about space and the moon. Major Tom is also a must-see with its curious cat peeking out of a goldfish-infested Rocket!

Keep up-to-date with all themed weeks and activities by following our social media channels @RocketRoundLeicester! Have fun during Music Week and don’t forget to tag us in your photographs and messages of the trail.
