Organisers of the vigil for the victims of the Pakistan school massacre this afternoon have had to change the location where it will take place.
It is still happening at 4.30pm, but it will now be held at the clock tower instead of the Town Hall.
It's because more people are expected to attend than first thought.
Candles will be lit at Leicester Town Hall this afternoon in memory of those who lost their lives in the attack on an army run school in the Pakistani city of Peshawar.
Other vigils will also take place across the region today, including at the cathedral in Birmingham.
A book of condolence will also be opened by Nottingham City Council at their council house.
141 people, mainly children, lost their lives in the attack.
Relatives of children killed in a massacre at a school in Pakistan have described those responsible as "unIslamic" and "ruthless".
More than 130 pupils were killed when gunmen targeted the army run school in Peshawar. People in the Midlands are still struggling to come terms with what happened, and many are organising vigils to remember those who died.
