Mantle Community Arts
Coalville Comes Alive Festival!
Saturday June 22nd
From 11 am to 2pm we will be filling the Belvoir Shopping Centre in Coalville with amazing street theatre performers. Among the highlights is Artizani's fantastic show 'Desert Island Disks' which features a shipwrecked mariner and a giant lobster. Also joining us will be old favourites Stuff and Things and puppet company Frolicked, doing walkabout encounters. You will also meet a musical dragon and a show that takes place inside a whale.

New book published! The Geometry of Distance
Mantle has published local writer Katie Daniels' poetry collection which takes us from Leicestershire to Brazil, the surreal nature of long distance travel providing the backdrop to a meditation on separation from those we love.
We now have an online bookshop, where you can buy Katie's Book as well as our local history publications. You'll find the shop here: Mantle Lane Press
