18:00 [18:00] Always and Always Facing Towards The Light (ext event)
This live 3D outdoor spectacular celebration of the life and work of Leicester's working class suffragette and Leicester Secular Society member, Alice Hawkins, was due to have taken place in Market Square last November, but was delayed because of essential works to the Corn Exchange building. There will be three half-hour performances this evening at about 6pm, 7:45 and 9pm. You will need to book, as this promises to be oversubscribed! Entry is by wrist-band, free from Visit Leicester on Gallowtree Gate.
