Taking place between 10:00am and 3:00pm, Healthy Living Day showcases various ways in which people in Leicester can make healthy lifestyle changes.


Leicester Stop Smoking Service will be on hand to deliver help and advice to those looking to stop smoking, whilst Leicester City Council will be providing advice and information as part of the Our Healthy City campaign.


Meanwhile, Leicester Market’s resident chef, Adam Piotrowski, will be delivering an engaging cookery demonstration, showing people how to prepare and cook a delicious and healthy beetroot falafel dish.


Leicester Riders will be encouraging people to get active, whilst children on their half-term break can enjoy a small-sized basketball court* which will be established in Market Square.


Leicestershire CCC and Leicester Hockey Club will also be informing people how they can get involved in sport in the region, whilst promoting upcoming fixtures taking place in the coming months.


The event is FREE to attend and all are welcome to find out how to make lifestyles healthier, whilst meeting some of the city’s biggest sporting names.
