Show good but parking was bad
I read with interest a letter published on December 29, regarding parking at Curve theatre ("Dolly is first class, but our theatre experience wasn't").
I also had a bad experience earlier this year when myself and three friends visited Curve.
Two of the friends were disabled and with their disabled badge I thought would be easy to park – wrong. We had to park in Rutland Street (there was nowhere to drop them off or pick them up afterwards). All the disabled spaces were taken up in the car park but that's on the first floor, with difficult stairs to go down and up.
In the end, we parked in the parent and child bay hoping that would be all right.

Then, to add to insult, it cost £4 to park (and that's cheap).
Also, the cafe was like a railway station cafe (although I have been in better railway station restaurants).
However, the show Finding Neverland was enjoyable, unlike the parking and catering. What must people outside Leicester think?
I also agree with the writer that facilities in De Montfort Hall are much better. You can book a disabled parking space (there are plenty) and the staff on the car park are really helpful and let you drop people off. Well done, De Montfort Hall.

There has been a lot of correspondence lately about mayor Sir Peter Soulsby's plans to make Leicester more attractive to tourists.
His support for the £10 million redevelopment of Leicester North train station (upon which the popular steam trains run) including a new National Railway Museum, the existing National Space Centre and the Abbey Pumphouse Museum, seems to be at odds with his support for the proposed gypsy site on Red Hill Way.
What does he imagine the reaction of visitors will be when they see the gypsy site right on the doorstep of these attractions?
Perhaps he thinks it will be a real crowd-puller?
