For one night only, on the 22nd November, to celebrate the start of the Christmas period and Leicester’s light switch on there will be the ‘Theatre of Light’, transforming St Peter’s Square through projection, colour and light. Taking place from 4pm-10pm, the show will be a contemporary sensory experience with live projection, a DJ, and street theatre for the added wow factor.
