The ‘Birch’, Leicester City legend and club ambassador has agreed to come along and judge our Fancy Dress competition and hopefully give out the medals to the Fun Runners too!! Keep an eye out for him on the Green from about 12 o’clock.
Ian Shonk, architect of the Mountsorrel REVIVAL, is also the organiser of the Soap Box race at our event. This year though he raised the stakes and, along with a few friends, entered the Red Bull Soap Box race which was held this year at Alexandra Palace in front of 20,000 people. And guess what? They won!!
REVIVAL was featured on Ben Jackson’s mid-morning show today (Thursday 11th May) when Ian Shonk and Ross Tomlyn went along to promote the event on local radio.
You can listen to the session here by clicking the following picture of Ben to take you to the catch up page on the radio Leicester site. Then press play to start the programme playback and finally scroll through to about the 1 hour and 36 minutes mark to hear the slot.
The Fashion Show & Sale will be held on Thursday 9th March at the Working Men’s Club in Mountsorrel starting at 7.30p.m. There is a £5 admission, the proceeds from which will go towards the cost of entertainment at the Mountsorrel REVIVAL on Sunday 13th August.

We have been working to try and bring an MCT twist to the Christmas lights switch-on but unfortunately our plans have been rejected. As such the switch-on will revert to its traditional Friday evening slot on 2nd December. We apologise to any Mountsorrel people that were hoping to see what we could do to enhance this festive event but this will not now be possible in 2016.
Members of the MCT will however be present at this year’s event canvasing opinion with regard to what people would like to see next year. Please look out for one of us (we’ll be wearing Orange reflective jackets) if you would like to tell us what you’d like to see in 2017.
The Soaring Dragons welcome everyone from the complete beginner to the seasoned paddler to try their hand at the unusual 2,500 year old sport of dragon boat racing. Come along to REVIVAL and have a go for yourselves. Available at the top end of the lock by the Waterside Inn.
