Six months ago a wonderful new shop space opened on Humberstone Gate, called We Are. A collective of local artists, designers and makers all sell their creations from the shop and it’s been a brilliant addition to the city. On Saturday 5 October they’ll be celebrating their 6 month anniversary and you can join them.

Join them this weekend as the We Are space will be filled with live music, special offers and pie (yes, pie!) Plus, there’s also some more news for the day as they’ll also be using it as the occasion to launch their highly anticipated online shop.

This week also marks the launch of Leicester’s Design Season 2 and We Are will be opening an exhibition that will be curated especially for the season. In this exhibition you will get a rare insight into the design process of some of the artists and designers that sell their work in we Are, and a behind the scenes view of their studios.

Remember we mentioned pie? There’ll be a pop up pie shop brought to you by Shortcrust Pies, with their amazingly delicious sweet pie creations. There’ll also be live music, special offers and above all a chance to support this wonderful collective of local creatives.

The event starts at 11am on Saturday 5 October and We Are is located at 44, The Basement, Humberstone Gate.
