The Magazine


Welcome to the July/August edition of The Bradgate Magazine, the weather we hope will work with us for the summer months and as such we’re delighted to be able to bring you lots of news, reviews and notices on some great things to see and do.

One of our favourites is the award-winning Wistow Maze, the giant 8-acre maize maze – open from July 20th – has a fun Quiz Trail hidden amongst its 3 miles of pathways, with a theme, this year, that celebrates the NHS’s 70th Anniversary…but if you thought that was grand, turn to page 29, as courtesy of the good folk at the Maze, we have a smashing family ticket up for grabs for one lucky reader.

Keeping on the competition thread, ‘local lad’ done very good, author Giles Kristian, born in Rothley, now living in Thurcaston, is offering not just a signed, but a personalised signing of his latest book Lancelot – which The Times cites as “a gorgeous, rich retelling of the Arthurian tale” – as part of a very special and unique prize indeed. Jump to page 32 for more details along with a very interesting account of Giles’ career to date.

Onwards and we have news to suit – from the 100th young person to benefit from an Inspire Award courtesy of the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust to how amazing dogs are transforming lives under the stewardship of Canine Partners; read too, all about how campaign group 38 Degrees are asking local businesses to reduce their plastic waste, after being stirred into action by the David Attenborough television series, Planet Earth. Great stuff!

…but let us not waylay you any further – do enjoy the read this edition and we hope to see you back here in a couple of months to do it all over again!!
