Getting here

Simon Says… is held at De Montfort Hall & Gardens, Leicester LE1 7RU on Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 July 2017.

Travel to and from festivals is the single biggest part of their carbon footprint so please think about using alternative methods of transport. We’re just a 10 minute walk from Leicester railway station, you can halve your costs by using Lift Share, and there’s a secure bike park run by Ride Leicester for cyclists. For full directions and transport methods to the festival please check out our Greener Travel page.
