Please note that the times of The Journeys Gazette readings have changed. 


The Journeys Gazette is a newspaper created especially for Journeys Festival International 2022.

Writer and Editor John Berkavitch weaves professional writers, leading poets and community stories together to create a powerful read exploring positivity, humour and healing. Working alongside local communities with experience of migration and resettlement, the newspaper aims to contradict the often negative views portrayed in the mainstream press surrounding asylum seekers and migrants and celebrates Leicester together as a city and as a new home.

Join us for two live readings on 14 August and get your copy of the new newspaper during the festival.



Jubilee Square sits at the top of the High Street in Leicester and is fully accessible with some permanent seating arrangements too. Though some of the grass areas do have dropped kerb access, we will ensure that the stages built for performances will be viewable from all accessible parts of the square.
