CREATIVE ENTERPRISE PROGRAMME
LCB Depot’s programme highlights a different type of creativity every month with exhibitions and events run by, for and with the city’s creative communities.
Artists, designers and makers from our workspaces, and those based in Leicester/shire and inter/nationally, take over our spaces and hold discussions, run workshops, exhibit and sell work, and more. If you want to get involved look out for our open calls on social media.

If you’re looking to exhibit with us join our Open Call mailing list or keep your eyes on our social media for our Open Calls for each season
You don’t have to be making work specifically in each of the sectors, if it’s related to the theme in some way then that’s also good- if you dance about architecture we can potentially include that in October’s programme, for example.
We’re also up for hosting events– you can send your ideas for them through the open call too.
Over the summer we host a variety of the city’s festivals as well as special exhibitions and solo shows.
Previous exhibitions include
Design Season is a festival of design that occurs every October across the city showcasing leading designers from all fields based in Leicester and beyond. Find out more at the Design Season site. At LCB Depot we focus on architecture, interior, product and furniture design.
The 2020 edition featured our Design Showcase exhibition that brought together work from different design disciplines.
