Bouncing back demonstrates a group of artist’s ability to ‘bounce back’ following a disastrous episode.

This exhibition is motivated by a group of artists’ reaction to a terrible event that happened to their community shop in Stretton-under-Fosse. The Malt Kiln Farm Shop Gallery offered an excellent outlet for the work of several new and well-established local artists. Devastatingly, in July 2016, the building was the target of an arson attack which completely destroyed it. In the aftermath of this horrendous experience, a small group of artists bolstered their resolve to overcome the catastrophe by creating more works of art, expressing themselves to prove that their creativity could not be stifled

The festive season starts in Hinckley with the Christmas Lights Switch on and Tin Hat fair. There will be lots of entertainment and attractions for all the family throughout the evening.

Leicester Tigers stars Manu Tuilagi and Logovi’l Mulipola will be switching on the lights with the Deputy Mayor at 6.25pm. Please note the slightly earlier start time which is to accommodate a Central News TV crew, who will be broadcasting the event live and need to adhere to their pre-determined slot in the programme schedule. The switch-on will be followed by a fantastic fireworks display over St Mary's church. There will be Santa's grotto, reindeer, live entertainment, market stalls and late night shopping.

The Tin Hat Fair will be in Regent Street on Friday and Saturday Night.

There will be free children's activities in the United Reformed Church from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
