Thousands of people came out today to watch the Leicester @ the Cross event which took place on Humberstone Gate. The event which has replaced Christ in the Centre due to a lack of funding was organised mainly by volunteers from all different Christian church’s in Leicester.
The performance lasted around 45 minutes and included music by the Emmanuel Apostolic Gospel Academy Choir, dance, narration and mime.
The Bishop of Leicester Tim Stevens also spoke at the event.
The Venerable Dr Tim Stratford, Archdeacon of Leicester who was in charge of the proceedings said he thought the event was “fantastic” and went on to say “we’ve had a fast moving, really diverse event with a street full of people who have come here to listen and join in, really good”
