A huge thank you to everyone who came to Simon Says… 2017

We have a big project planned for 2018 to improve the gardens and outdoor space at De Montfort Hall, to make it easier to put on more outdoor events in the future.

The project means the gardens will be a bit of a mess throughout the summer, so we’ve come to the difficult decision not to put on Simon Says in 2018, as we won’t have anywhere to hold the festival.

We absolutely love Simon Says and from the amazing feedback we’ve had over the past five years, we know that you’re pretty keen on the event too. It gives us a perfect chance to let everyone enjoy our gorgeous gardens and the best of the Leicester music scene in a real community celebration.

It’s not been an easy decision – but with all the work going on in the gardens there just won’t be room to hold the festival.

Thanks to everyone who has come to Simon Says over the years – we really couldn’t do it without you.
