This weekend will see St Martin’s Square in Leicester receive an exciting new addition as The Urban Antidote art gallery opens its doors to the city centre.

Moving from its Lutterworth home to a brand new space, a launch event will take place on Saturday 6 October which is set to be attended by renowned British artist JJ Adams. Well-known for his mixed media work which features a vast array of famous faces, the gallery will also feature some of his best pieces.

Speaking to the Leicester Mercury about the launch, Sarah said: “We’re really looking forward to hosting Marcus, he’s one of the country’s most promising artists.

“To have so many other high-profile names keen to work with us is a real privilege. We want to make this ‘the gallery’ outside of London.”
