About Us

Who are we?

Leicestershire Bonsai Club was formerly known as Wigston Bonsai Club.

We are a small, friendly members owned Bonsai Club, based in Leicester. Our purpose is to develop interest in and further the knowledge of the art of Bonsai and to encourage people to become involved in this fascinating pastime.

The membership consists of both men and women of all bonsai abilities from beginner’s through to people with many years of experience and we welcome visitors and new members, no matter what their experience level.

What we Do.

We have started this website to give you an idea of what we are up to, so feel free to browse.

The emphasis during our monthly meetings is on practical bonsai techniques (re-pclub nightotting, pruning, wiring, styling etc.), but we do try to have a guest speaker or two during the year.

The club is also represented at a number of local shows, putting on displays of member’s trees.  At these shows we will display not only the refined trees of the more experienced members, but also trees in all stages of development, so as to demonstrate the developmental stages of bonsai.  This also gives less experienced members and those starting out in this hobby the chance to display their trees.

Where and When do we meet?

Why not come along and see what we are all about.  You will be most welcome.

Our meetings are held at::
Syston Rugby Club
Barkby Road

Meetings start at 7.30pm usually on the first Tuesday of every month.
