This festival is no longer running.
The Big Session Festival is in its sixth year (2010) at De Montfort Hall and has grown year on year to provide festival-goers with a quality, friendly and green event.
In 2008 it won the 'Greener Festival Award', it was also awarded a special Red Kite Mark for efforts to make the festival as environmentally friendly as possible.
To encourage festival goers into taking instruments organisers have also set up a safe and secure cloakroom to leave instruments.
