Handmade is a multi-venue music and arts festival in the city of Leicester. It was originally imagined by John Helps (of Leicester based instrumental band Maybeshewill) as a way to bring exciting new and original music, comedy, art, film and photography in to the city centre over three days. Since then it has grown and is now programmed and run by John along with Nik Sharpe (The Cookie), Matt Kirk (Firebug), Andy Wright (The Charlotte) and a tonne of other people across multiple artistic disciplines. Partnerships with Big Scary Monsters and Alcopop Records as well as the 2000 Trees and ArcTanGent Festivals have been a big part of the Handmade from day one, and it continues to involve curators from musical organisations from across the country.

"It feels so good to finally get this announcement out in to the world. Handmade has grown every year since we started it in 2013, but this feels like our biggest step to date as we move in to the main room of O2 Academy Leicester, as well as the many other spaces around the Academy and Attenborough Arts Centre. We could not be more excited about the line-up, and this is just a flavour of what you can expect across the two days."

Tickets start at £40 for adults and for the first time the festival is able to offer tickets at £30 for students and £20 for under 16s.


The festival will take place on 29th and 30th April 2017.
