The Cultural Exchanges Festival organized by De Montfort University is a great occasion and way of discovering more about writers, publishers, actors or even YouTube stars. As a creative writer, I've signed up for a range of events including the Demon Crew, Kizuna Dance and Imogen Sutton on 'Daughters of De Beauvoir.'
Why not come and have a look for yourself and see what you think? Most events are free or very cheap, and those taking part include journalist Gary Younge, actor Josette Simon, TV presenter Anne Davies, script-writer Vinay Patel and many more.
It's an opportunity to pursue your interests - or find interests you never knew you had. You can book tickets here.
