Sports and leisure activities and large outdoor rock concerts
Victoria Park, Leicester was originally built as a racecourse and served this purpose for more than 75 years, from 1806 to 1883. In 1882, it was decided to turn the land into a place of more general entertainment, and it became a public park featuring a typically Victorian bandstand, with races now being held at nearby Leicester Racecourse. The park also served as the home ground of the first incarnation of Leicester City FC, known then (from 1884 to 1890) as Leicester Fosse. The sporting facilities were expanded over the decades and the park became the venue for all manner of sporting pastimes, including tennis, bowls, cricket and croquet. With so much open grassland available, combined with ample shelter from trees, it was almost inevitable that it would also become a live music venue. In the late twentieth century, it established a name for itself as one of the premier outdoor festival venues and has played host to a wide range of them, including the Summer Sundae Festival, Leicester Pride, the Leicester Caribbean Carnival and BBC's One Big Sunday. Now and then, bands have used the venue for really big outdoor shows, such as when Kasabian drew over 50,000 fans. Join the fun yourself by getting your own Victoria Park Leicester tickets.
Real fun with fake bands
One of the most popular festivals ever to come to Victoria Park Leicester is the Leicester Fake Festival, which is a one of a kind in the UK. It's a gathering of the top tribute and cover bands in the country, laid out like a classic rock festival. So past headliners have included the fake Green Day band, Green Date, and the fake Red Hot Chili Peppers outfit, Really Hot Chili Peppers. As you can imagine, this can get quite interesting and provides a chance to watch artists who are often dead ringers for the real thing. It's great fun indeed, and worth the prices of Victoria Park Leicester tickets alone. Keep your eye out on StubHub for great music festivals like these.
