Call out for artists to be part of one on Leicester’s biggest free festivals!

Now in its 21st year and taking place over Saturday 2 & Sunday 3 June the family friendly Leicester Riverside Festival features fun on and off the water.

For the first time artists, painters, 2D artists and photographers are invited to display and sell their artwork within a dedicated ‘Art on the River’ area along Western Boulevard, showcasing their work to approximately 30,000 festival-goers.

A three-metre railing space along the river is just £25 per day or £35 for 2 days. Wire and small cable ties will be provided for art to be held to the fence. All artwork must be mounted and artists will be responsible for looking after their own work. There will be a security presence during the day but artwork must be removed at night. No tables or marquees allowed on site.

To be part of this unique opportunity please contact Theo Markham-Crew, Festivals & Events, Leicester City Council. Tel: 0116 454 3600 or email: Theo.Markham-Crew@leicester.gov.uk
