Overgrown City

18 January 2021

a free community exhibition – YOU can take part!

Libraries and arts organisations across the county are being transformed through local company Buzzing Roots’ new project Overgrown City. The aim is to redecorate their windows to recreate an enchanted forest and they are inviting the community to join them.

Visit your local library windows at Pork Pie Library, Beaumont Leys Library, The Brite Centre and St Barnabas Library to see how they have been decorated.

In the city centre you can view windows in the Cultural Quarter at

LCB Depot
Leicester Print Workshop
Exchange Bar
Orton’s Brasserie
Ramada Encore
Chutney Ivy
Brick & Beam

Why not take them in as part of your local area daily walk/cycle/run?
