Leicester Procession and Performance Opportunities
Stand and Be Counted Theatre and ArtReach want YOU!
If you want to try your hand at acting, singing, dance, design or you have experience and want an opportunity to perform then we want to hear from you!
This year Journeys Festival International (JFI) is inviting the people of Leicester to come together for a celebratory, fun and energetic procession through the City Centre – part of the VOICES project, aiming to celebrate Leicester and welcome people from all over the world to our city.
