  1. upset that 2 bonfire events have been cancelled on the north side of leicester. rugby club and mowmacre sports ground, both attracted 2000 visitors. thet say they couldnt compete with abbey park but they only asked for small donation in a bucket, shouldve asked for say £3 a person and the 2 events couldve worked something out together

    1. It’s a shame that the larger events are pushing out local displays. I was surprised I couldn’t find more around Leicester. I tried to include some smaller events because I know that the big ones aren’t always accessible to everyone 🙂
