“We started building our on city maps three weeks previous. Come and join our team to continue to build your very own paper model to place on our city map. Previous attendance is not essential. Our team of professionals will be on hand with help and advice. Drop in for 5 minutes, or stay for the whole session, it’s completely up to you – and how intricate your design is! This event was a great success in previous years and we do hope you will come and join us. There’s no need to book your tickets if you just fancy popping along between 12pm and 3pm on the day, but we’d love to know in advance if you’re thinking of joining us. There’s no age limit on playing and exploring so all are welcome to come along and get creative. Teams are also welcome, but remember to bring your own adult – no unaccompanied children, please.”

Love Architecture : Meet The Architect

LCB Depot

A rare opportunity for people across Leicestershire and Rutland to meet our RIBA architects with a free one-to-one half-hour design consultation.
Bring any home or design query; whether you are looking for advice to create more space in your home, or are looking for ways to bring in more natural light, our architects will do their best to help you. You do not need to be planning a “Grand Designs” style house to come along to LCB Depot between 12pm and 3pm and talk to a professional, but we would recommend bringing plans (if you have them) and photographs of your existing space.

Guided Walk : Leicester's Cathedral quarter

Leicester's Cathedral quarter

“Having retraced a series of plaques in the city centre, marked for the 1984 LRSA Trail, which had until that point been a complete mystery to us! Some serious investigation later and we have uncovered a map of the 1984 trail highlighting the most important public spaces and vistas in the city.”

Local architects David Hickman and Adam Smith of Hickman & Smith will take the lead of this tour, focusing on areas, buildings and views at the established LRSA Trail stations around the Cathedral Quarter.
Join our architects and see this part of the city in a whole new light!
