The Story of Leicester Plan is a set of council priorities relating to Leicester’s 2,000 years of history.

It uses and interprets Leicester’s different heritages to maximise economic and social benefits for its modern citizens. These are drawn together in a single Story of Leicester plan. We are delivering this with a range of partners including Leicester’s universities, the National Trust, local heritage organisations, community groups and volunteers. By telling the ‘One Story’ of Leicester’s proud history, made up of many, we celebrate all the communities that make up the one community of Leicester.
