What a year!

After 9 days of wonderful reading events across Leicester we are extremely proud of what was achieved. We got some great feedback and there’s a load of photos too!

In 2016 we had some wonderful lead up events held at St Martins Square and also our video which was played on the new Beacons in St. Peters Square. We’ll have similar things going on this year so keep your eye on our Facebook and Twitter for news as it happens!

Here’s a few reminders of 2016!


Everybody’s Reading is a festival of all things reading, taking place across Leicester city in schools, libraries and venues, ranging from bars, cafes, pubs, and coffee shops.

Everybody’s Reading is dedicated to encouraging every person in Leicester to hear spoken word artists, poets, authors and community writers in their local community venues and offers funding to help make this happen. With a large variety of genres catered to, it is guaranteed there is something for everyone to enjoy from anywhere in the city
