Welcome to our Website!

During Covid-19 we have been working on our new website and helping to connect the communities of Leicester together to raise awareness of good causes, important issues and great ideas through our social media channels.

You can now find videos from speakers at our events here in our event catalogue, with recommendations below and our Licence Holder Siddhi Trivedi has a message to welcome all.

“TEDxLeicester is a tribe of passionate and curious changemakers who are devoted to their community and want to change lives”

Over the last 5 years we have hosted many incredible speakers during our TEDxLeicester and TEDxSalon events.

Our speakers and volunteer teams have helped bring a lot of great ideas and discussions to the TEDxLeicester Stage.

Here you can find these videos in our events listing.
