Move it or lose it!

Warning, warning: there are a couple of hippedy-hop happening things happening soon in Leicester, so you’d better move it or lose it!

Pumpkin Gutting

Friends of the blog and all round nice dudes, the Real Junk Food Project are offering a pumpkin gutting service, so you can get your pumpkin taken down to the shell with no effort, ready for carving, and they will use the guts for their awesome Pay as You Feel cafe. Love food, hate waste – get yourself a super Hallowe’en decoration and some delicious grub to boot.

Just take your pumpkin to LCiL at the West End Centre, LE3 5PA between 2pm and 5pm on Thursday (tomorrow – 29/10/15) or 9am and 11am on Friday, then don’t forget to attend the Pay As You Feel cafe on Thursday evening or Friday lunchtime to reap the delicious rewards!

One Big Day Out for £20

A new day is coming to De Montfort Hall Gardens next April. On Sunday 31st, the Brand New Heavies and an amazing line up of fantastic funk and soul will be performing and if you buy your ticket before the end of October you can get it for just twenty squids. Well, maybe English pounds rather than ten armed cephalapods, but you can’t deny it is a ripping deal.

We’ll also be treated to The Specials’ Neville Staple, Midlands jazz funk collective Stone Foundation and of course Johnny and the Good Time Boys (and undoubtedly much, much more). October ends on Sunday though, so get a shake on! Get your tickets from the De Montfort Hall box office, before you have to pay more!

Fabulous food, without breaking a seam

I was blown away by the 7 course menu for 700 calories at The White Peacock in September, so I won’t be missing the next Dine on a Diet, which will be held at North Bar and Kitchen on Hinckley Road on the 19th November. Tickets are strictly limited, so don’t miss out on a fabulous five course tasting menu of traditional British food with a contemporary European twist developed in association with U Fit Studio so it’ll be big on taste but still healthy and nutritious. A culinary feast without the guilt, if the last event was anything to go by, you can book your tickets through this link.
