Back to Leicester and its Literature

I have arrived back at De Montfort this week, and so I can finally delve back into appriciation of culture. The Everybody’s Reading Festival has started today and will carry on through the week, with many free sessions (and free books!) it’s a good stop for any book worm or (if you’re like me) a frugal fun seeker.

Peter Flack (NUT), Chair of Everybody’s Reading says that “In 2016 over 130 events will take place in all parts of the city in diverse venues” such as an atmospheric reading by Michael Morpurgo in the Leicester Cathedraland or meet some famous writers, such as my childhood favourite, Jaquline Wilson or meet up with local writers whilst eating some Gelato. Did I mention most of these things are free?

I’ll hopefully get to attend the events outside of my university timetable and review them, especially the philosophy and poetry ones. Maybe I’ll steal my boyfriend’s camera to get some pictures. You can find more info about the festival at

Also, my university is holding an evening in celebration of the National Poetry Day, where there will be a readings and an open mic. 🙂
