Exhibitions, classes, workshops, music, dance

The University of Leicester’s Attenborough Arts Centre programme offers courses and workshops, contemporary art, performance and live art, theatre and comedy, live music and jazz, dance, activities for children and families.

Attenborough Arts Centre will open a brand new gallery in autumn 2015, dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary British and international art. The £1.5 million capital project, funded by Arts Council England, University of Leicester and over 1,000 public donations, will make Attenborough Arts Centre the largest contemporary art gallery in Leicester and one of the largest in the East Midlands area.

Attenborough Arts Centre’s work is inspired by Lord Richard Attenborough, the world leading filmmaker, actor and lifelong patron of the arts. Handing the patronage to his son Michael, the centre continues to follow Richard’s vision of art, culture and learning and is one of only two purpose-built spaces in the East Midlands for the promotion of arts and disability.
