DMU Heritage Centre, Leicester, 2015

There are so many events taking place in Leicester over the next week, because of that BIG event, that I'm taking a break from Loughborough this week, and heading over to the new Heritage Centre at De Montfort University! I was lucky enough to get a preview of the new Centre before it was officially opened, and I was impressed with what I saw. There's a temporary exhibition area, which currently features WW1, and a temporary area in which staff and student work will be displayed. This is in addition to those famous arches - which aren't going anywhere! -  and other displays about the university and the area in which it's situated. The Centre is in the Hawthorn Building accessed from the door opposite Newarke Houses Museum: The entrance corridor is adorned with a timeline, framed by wooden arches which echo the stunning arches situated within. 

While you're in the area, visit Castle Gardens, and Newarke Houses Museum, or, if you can, book a guided tour of castle and the Magazine.
