The festival was held at Wreake Valley Academy.

Football Development Coordinator and event host Luke Miller said: “Everybody has had lots of fun; it is a good chance to enjoy half-term. We provide lots of sessions for adults and children and we believe anybody should have access to opportunities. With the Cost-of-Living crisis, it is even more important to make sure events like this are available to anyone in Leicestershire.”

Despite the unpredictable spring weather, hundreds of people left Wreake Valley Academy with smiles on their faces and with the opportunity to get involved with LCitC sessions in the near future.

Leicester City in the Community run football sessions year-round. Find out your nearest session HERE. For more information on football sessions with Leicester City’s charity, please contact luke.miller@lcfc.co.uk.
