Night of Festivals
 

If you’re on the Square today, you might see a bunch of cows, well, ladies dressed as cows and not in the ‘off down Oceana’ way. Their moo-vin’ and shakin’ is part of the city’s Night of Festivals which kicks off today and will last until tomorrow night, before heading down Leicester way, presumably to have a look at that dead king, because why else would you be in Leicester?

With a carnivalesque feel, the festival will be bringing dance, music and spoken word from around the world, including a Kora player, spoken word with LeftLion’s very own poetry editor, Aly Stoneman and The Storytelling Cafe, if you fancy listening to some great stories, in a yurt, while you curl up with a nice, warm cuppa. There’s a workshop that links to the festival going on at Tempreh too, so get yersen down there to have a look while you’re at it.

There will be workshops spread over the weekend too, if you’ve had a crappy week at work and are now entertaining a future in drumming or dance which, lets be honest, would be way more fun than your current nine-to-five. 

So pop on down while you're doing your shop this weekend and be transported to a world of dance and music, you might even get a cow twerking in your face. 

The Night of Fesitvals will be on from 11am - 10pm Friday and 11am - 5pm Saturday

Most activities are free but please check beforehand

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
