Leicester Fringe 2011

Despite the threats posed by rioters, the Leicester Fringe went ahead again this year. There were various music and arts events around Leicester in the week running up to the main event - Fringe Thursday. Fringe Thursday sees bands playing at nine local music venues, with connecting buses from the Summer Sundae Festval site

Cuttlefish was one of the sponsors again this year and somehow I got roped in to sit on the door at Fabrika. The night started slow but definitely picked up towards the end with punters treated to a great night of music.

The final figures aren‘t in yet, but it looks like the festival should have done a good job of raising money for its three local charities - LOROS, Rainbows and Prostaid.
