Summer Sundae 2011

Because there's more to Leicester than jumpers and crisps (for this weekend, anyway)

Summer Sundae 2011

Held in the plush surroundings of De Montfort Hall and Gardens in Leicester, Summer Sundae is one the UK's premier boutique festivals and this weekend it will play host to some of the best international, national and local musical talent. Plus McFly.

It has won numerous awards since its inception, and it's not hard to see why. The festival has one of the friendliest atmospheres, helped by the fact that it is held in a big beautiful posh garden that is full of greenery. There is a dedicated kids area to keep the little 'uns entertained, it's easy to walk around (despite therebeing six stages crammed full of music, meaning you are never in a rush to get from one place to the next and can take things at your own pace), and when you get a bit peckish there's a whole variety of food to choose from that isn't your bog standard greasy noodles and sawdust burger festival grub - and whatever you decided to eat can be washed down with a locally-brewed real ale.

Whilst the music is a right old eclectic pick n' mix with big indie hitters, underground stars, living legends and the hottest local talent. Because we're all about bigging up our own, here's a run-down of the Nottingham bands on the bill, and when and where to catch them...
