Tell Us Your Story

Step into our video booth and share your stories and memories of Leicester's Cultural Quarter.

Tell us what you used to do in the Cultural Quarter, where you went and who with. Or tell us how you spend your time in the area now. Whatever your story, we want to hear it.

The video booth will be located in the foyer at Phoenix (Midland Street, Leicester) from 20th October, before it moves onto other Cultural Quarter venues.
