UOL arts centre

Embrace Arts is the University of Leicester’s multi-use inclusive arts centre, with a history of promotion and encouragement of engagement in the arts by people with disabilities. Open to all, its award-winning building houses a 120-seater performance area, three studios, and an exhibition gallery. It has a diverse programme of performance and learning activity throughout the year, covering a wide range of art forms, primarily classical music, jazz, dance, comedy, theatre, live art, children’s theatre, crafts, the written word and visual arts. It is located 10 minutes’ walk from the city centre on Lancaster Road, at the edge of the main University of Leicester campus.

We are proud to support students as part of the music scholarship programme. Click here to find out more about how you can apply to gain valuable experience from the Philharmonia Orchestra to develop and showcase your music to a wider audience.

Championed by Lord Attenborough, it is one of only two purpose-built spaces in the East Midlands for the promotion of arts and disability. It fosters inclusive arts practice for artists, audiences and participants across all its performing and visual arts programming, both within the venue and in its outreach activities, which currently engages more than 45,000 people annually.
