Art-AI Festival launches in Leicester in May, featuring installations, performances and activities across the city and online.

One of the main highlights of the programme is Hello Lamp Post, offering you a unique way to see Leicester in a different light, and thanks to BID Leicester it also gives you a chance to win some prizes too!

BID Leicester and LoyalFree have teamed up with the Art-AI Festival to create a trail across the interactive Hello Lamp Post tour and you can win a £50 Leicester Gift Card when you scan in at various locations.

So what is Hello Lamp Post? It’s a walking trail consisting of 16 points of interest across Leicester’s city centre, which will encourage you to look at the city with fresh eyes. Look for the signs on lamp posts and start to interact with the King Richard III statue, the War Memorial and more. Using text messages, anyone will be able to chat with some of Leicester’s most iconic landmarks. Conversations are thought provoking, insightful and are powered by artificial intelligence.

There are 16 landmarks to visit and at each spot you’ll find a spot to scan in with the LoyalFree app. By scanning in you’ll be entered into a monthly prize draw to win a £50 Leicester Gift Card.

If you haven’t already got LoyalFree downloaded, then make sure you do. It’s packed full of special offers and digital loyalty schemes across various businesses and independents across Leicester, as well as offering various city walking trails.

You can find out more and download via the LoyalFree website.

Hello Lamp Post will run from 1 May – 31 October and you can find out more from the Art-AI website or follow Art-AI Festival on Facebook and Twitter.
