About Leicestershire

Leicestershire, part of the North Midlands, is a county of surprisingly varied landscape. Charnwood Forest is a wild jumble of crags, rocky outcrops, open heath land and undulating ridges. There is an untamed desolation to the scenery of this once densely wooded area. The area provides fascinating and dramatic walking amongst the ancient pre-Cambrian granite outcrops and remaining oak woods. There are fine views from the tops of Beacon Hill and Bardon Hill. However, Charnwood Forest is not typical of Leicestershire's countryside. It is mostly undulating rich green grazing land on a clay soil, particularly in southern Leicestershire between Leicester and Market Harborough

Leicestershire is well served for all kinds of music. For classical music there are The Philharmonia Orchestra, Leicester Symphony Orchestra, and the internationally famous Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra - three of the larger orchestras in the county.

In May 2010 the Leicester Mercury announced that "The Academy Music Group (AMG) is to open three new venues: a 1,450-capacity O2 Academy, a 500-capacity O2 Academy 2 and a 250-capacity O2 Academy 3 in the University of Leicester. Chart-topping soul-boy Plan B is the first act announced to play the new Academy. Many more big-name surprises are promised in the coming weeks." Folk and jazz venues are also plentiful.r />
