Aalborg Karneval is the biggest carnival in Northern Europe and attracts crowds of 100,000 people each year.

Aalborg Karneval, with young Danish graffiti artist Frida Still Vium and Mandinga Arts, working with Spice Queen Productions have created a carnival float which celebrates themes of liberty and is touring European festivals this summer. The fabulous float comes to Leicester on 12 August as we start this year’s festival with a colourful carnival performance.

Put on your Samba shoes, grab your dancing buddies and join us as we celebrate the start of our tenth anniversary in Scandinavian street-party style.



Clock Tower is a wide open space in the heart of the city centre, with dropped kerb access available.

High Street is an open shopping street which begins at Jubilee Square and runs down to Clock Tower, with wide, flat, open areas and dropped kerb access available.
