Creative Industries Programme


LCB Depot's programme highlights a different type of creativity every month with exhibitions and events run by and for the city's creative communities.


Artists, designers and makers from our workspaces, based in Leicester/shire and inter/nationally take over our spaces and hold discussions, run workshops, exhibit and sell work, and more. If you want to get involved look out for our open calls on social media.
