Cultural eXchanges returns
De Montfort University's Cultural eXchanges festival returns. It runs from Monday, 27 February - Friday, 2 March and the majority of events are still free. Highlights include a poetry evening with Geraldine Monk and Alan Halsey, a Q&A session with actor and director Adrian Lester, and visits from choreographers Matthew Bourne and Sonia Sabri.
You can learn more from the website - and booking goes live on Monday, 13 February.
You may also be interested in the return of States of Independence, the independent publishers' day, which takes place at De Montfort's Clephan Building on Saturday, 17 March. Once more there will be stalls from booksellers and publishers as well as a choice of panels, talks and performances to attend. Admission to all talks remains free - a bargain in this age of austerity.
