Over one hundred Gateway students have joined Keith in a mass rendition of Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ to mark the start of the campaign for Leicester City of Culture 2017.

The fantastic news that Leicester had been shortlisted in the City of Culture 2017 competition was announced on 19th June 2013. Leicester joins Hull, Dundee, and Swansea Bay as the four finalists for the prize.

Mr Vaz had challenged Southend and David Amess to a Gangnam style dancing competition to prove that Leicester had a better bid. But unfortunately for Mr Amess, Southend was not shortlisted.

Now Keith has written to other shortlisted cities to throw down the gauntlet and challenge them to a mass Gangnam Style.
