35 artworks for 35 years of Soft Touch Arts - your invitation to celebrate

The charity has put out an open invite.

Local charity Soft Touch Arts is inviting Leicester people to celebrate their 35th birthday with them on Tuesday, November 16.


On display will be 35 artworks created by their young beneficiaries over the years.


They will be celebrating with a variety of fun events throughout the evening and the young beneficiaries will also be there to meet and greet.

Soft Touch Arts is an award-winning Leicestershire charity that uses arts, music and media to bring about positive life changes to disadvantaged young people.


The team achieves this by supporting their talent development in creativity as well as equipping them with social and employability skills.


Attending the 35th birthday at the Soft Touch Arts studio will help support the local community and the lives of these young people.

There will be speeches by the Deputy Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire as well as other Leicester speakers.


A networking session will follow and some delicious free food and drinks and entertainment in the forms of music and poetry.


Soft Touch Arts will also host an open day on November 20 from 11am to 3pm for the public to meet their young people and see their stunning artworks.


The last few remaining spaces are up for grabs. Contact Christina Wigmore on chris@soft-touch.org.uk.


The celebration will take place at 6pm on Tuesday, November 16 at the Soft Touch Arts studio in 50 New Walk, LE1 6FT.
