The Liberty Orchestra lifts the spirit of the festival with live Jazz.

The orchestra was formed as part of the Liberty EU programme in 2021 and features young musicians from around the world. Inspired by the sounds of folklore from all over the planet, the Liberty Orchestra creates sounds inspired by places, countries and people across the world. Whether it’s a Maqam from the Middle East, a Saharan Gnawa beat or music from somewhere else completely, the Liberty Orchestra moves in a new direction…

A fresh sound hailing from old traditions.



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.

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.

If you have any concerns over access or need to request some additional provisions to assist you in attending this performance please contact
