Ahead of its official opening in January 2016, we're giving you the chance to experience a brand new gallery at the Attenborough Arts Centre from Wednesday 18 November.

This will be one of the largest contemporary art galleries in the region and a major new asset for Leicester. The new gallery, which will be the home for contemporary art in Leicester, will be open seven days a week, with three major exhibitions each year, all for free.

More than 1000 donors have helped to build our new gallery, following Lord Attenborough’s original vision of access to the arts for all.

The first exhibition to grace Leicester's new home for contemporary art is Life, Art, Activism, a ground-breaking display of artworks which set out to challenge the way we perceive disability in our society.

We're also inviting you to join our Wednesday lunchtime tours at 12.30pm to find out more about the new gallery, bring the kids along to our family workshops every Saturday at 1pm, or join the artists for a talk and performance on Thursday 10 December at 5.30pm.

The exhibition runs from Wednesday 18 November until Sunday 17 January 2016.
