Welcome all to the January/February issue of The Bradgate Magazine, aka the first edition of 2020!
Hopefully we’ve all had delightful Christmas periods, full of festivities and merriment, yummy dining and fun family experiences – and whilst the weather, to date, has been relatively mild we hope this will allow you all to continue to get out and about and to enjoy some of the activities and events our local groups, clubs and societies are offering you at the start of this brand new decade.
On the subject of out and about…De Montfort Hall and the Leicester Y for example have two brilliant stand-ups in town in February, the ever-popular Ed Byrne as well as bright young thing Josie Long! Both are multiple award-winning comedians bringing A-game shows to our doorstep…and what’s even better, we have a competition on the go this issue, offering up a pair of tickets to each gig!
One of our little gems, the Great Central Railway, also has a whole host of activities on the go, and not just for those of you who might be train enthusiasts, something for the young at heart, courtesy of the Paw Patrol gang is in the diary for February as is a Valentine’s Day dining service – ones not to be missed!
…but talking of travel and transport, we’re pleased to briefly introduce a new advertiser to the magazine, in Railtrail – a well-established, long-standing Midlands based business bringing unique train tours, both home and abroad, to you fine folk. If 2020 offers you the impetus to do anything new, then a “steam hauled ride through Amish country” before taking a tour through “quintessential New England in 1920s vintage coaches” sounds like it could just seal the deal!
Enjoy the read and Happy New Year everyone!
