Can Economics Ever Be Fun?

It’s known as the dismal science, but bad reputations are often a side effect of having anER Images (19) awful lot of fun. Perhaps then…just maybe…economics is a right laugh? In this 45 minute show, Damon Gibbons, author of the incredibly serious ‘Britain’s Personal Debt Crisis: How we got here and what to do about it’ sets out to tickle the underbelly of monetary discipline and fiscal irresponsibility (or is it the other way around?). Armed only with the rules of monopoly and a dozen dusty tomes written by the bearded dead, Gibbons will accomplish the near impossible and MAKE ECONOMICS FUN.

This event is suitable for all ages. Tickets are £5 on the door.

From Football to Books

Bali Rai will give the children and young people an inspirational talk that will leave a ER Images (26)legacy. Meeting a well-known local author who shares their love of ‘The beautiful game,’ will build self-confidence and other life skills. Knowledge and skills gained from this initial workshop will lead onto other sessions with exciting follow up activities elsewhere. These related workshops will provide opportunities to reflect on ‘life beyond football.’

This event is suitable for families and over 10’s. This event is free, but booking is essential by emailing julie.thomas@leicester.gov.uk.
