Cosmopolitan Arts specialises in creating large-scale spectacular events and dazzling, unique performances. We have over a decade of experience creating exhibitions, hosting events, and commissioning bespoke performances. 


Since 2011, we've ignited Leicester's vibrant cultural scene with the dynamic Cosmopolitan Arts Festival (formerly Cosmopolitan Carnival). This extraordinary event has enthralled audiences with its explosive live music, captivating dance, mesmerising street theatre, and awe-inspiring art.

In 2017, we proudly took charge of the Leicester Chinese New Year celebrations, transforming the city centre into a kaleidoscope of cultural wonders. From dazzling decorations to spellbinding performances, we've immersed the public in the joyous spirit of this momentous cultural celebration.

But our journey doesn't stop there! In 2023, Cosmopolitan Arts achieved the prestigious Non-Profit Organization (NPO) status, by Arts Council England (ACE). This milestone fuels our commitment to promoting and celebrating the diverse arts and cultures of Leicester.

Furthermore, we've nurtured Leicester's youth with unwavering dedication. Our numerous projects and workshops have introduced budding talents to a kaleidoscope of creative disciplines, fueling their artistic passions. Collaborating with ethnic groups in Leicester, we've delved into cultural heritage, unravelled the intricacies of identity, and shed light on the pervasive impact of racism in their daily lives.

As we continue to evolve, Cosmopolitan Arts remains a beacon of inclusivity, creativity, and the transformative power of the arts. Join us on this thrilling journey as we celebrate diversity and embrace the resplendent tapestry of Leicester's cultural landscape.



We have a fantastic team of artists and technical specialists that work together to create spectacular performances, involving an array of disciplines, including large-scale animation, pyrotechnics, circus performers, aerialists, live music, fireworks, dances, and light displays. Also dynamic immersive digital arts exhibitions, large-scale festivals and engaging arts based workshops. 


Cosmopolitan’s dedicated team of professionals can create and build artwork, produce awesome graphics and film content, and supply and facilitate all technical aspects of your event. Our management team will take all the stress of planning the event out of your hands, delivering amazing, high-quality events and performances. All that’s left for you to do, is enjoy it!

Cosmopolitan Arts celebrates cultural diversity through the arts, to transcend language barriers and create a better understanding, promoting social harmony, inclusion and integration.

We create work that is evocative, taking it to places and people that do not usually access the arts, to positively change people's perceptions. We are artistic innovators, embracing new technologies, using a combined arts approach to deliver groundbreaking and exciting work.
