Leicester City Council
Leicester City Council serves the residents, communities and businesses of Leicester, the largest city in the East Midlands with an estimated 355,000 population. The council has supported arts, leisure, and entertainment for over 150 years and to this day we continue to invest in the city’s cultural organisations and activities. The council’s festivals and events team deliver a vibrant, multi-cultural annual programme that showcases the city’s creativity and diversity. And sponsoring a Rocket is a great addition to the already amazing plans for Leicester City Festival in 2021.
“The council are delighted to support Rocket Round Leicester, particularly all of the talented artists that will design the sculptures for the many visitors and residents to enjoy throughout the city. It’s a wonderful compliment to the fact every single year since 1967 there’s been a Leicester-built instrument operating in space.”
