The Magazine


Welcome one and all to the September/October edition of The Bradgate Magazine.

As we start to transition into Autumn we’re pleased to report there are still some wonderful things to get involved with, out and about, in the local community. Leicester’s Memory Walk in aid of Alzheimer’s Society is one such fine example, as too is a Rothley coffee morning arranged courtesy of the Leicester local committee of Cancer Research UK. Leicester Pride returns to Leicester too – why not show your support for our LGBTQ+ community! and the National Garden Scheme Leicestershire concludes its 2023 showing with four gardens for your enjoyment, finishing in October in lovely Melton Mowbray!

We’ve news too of a smashing competition, courtesy of the great team at Loughborough Town Hall, with two tickets up for grabs to see the fantastic Ed Byrne and his new show, “Tragedy Plus Time” on October 20th…talking of competitions, our congratulations go to Jennifer Claridge who won the Wistow Maze Family Ticket in our last issue – we hope you had/have a fab time at the ‘Maize Maze’ Jennifer and Co, and our thanks to Diana Brooks and all the team at Wistow Maze for their generous provision!

Finally…like this month’s cover? Well High 5s all round to the brilliant Vincent Preston who has kindly given his permission for us to use this fabulous shot entitled ‘The Deer at the Stream’, this beautiful image features as the month of ‘September’ (rather aptly) in the new 2024 Bradgate Park calendar (to find out more/see how you can get your copy head to page 12 for more details).

In wanting to hold you all up no more please read on and enjoy!
