Lancashire 2025 Bid for City of Culture
Aug, 9 2021
Never underestimate strength of one county and it’s impact on the individuals that live there.
Last week Lancashire 2025 launched a short film encouraging locals to ‘sign the bid’ to win City of Culture 2025 for Lancashire.
Debbi Lander, Bid Director of Lancashire 2025 expressed the importance of such an opportunity,
“Having formally entered the competition to host UK City of Culture 2025 and received a great show of support from the people of Lancashire, we want to see Lancashire win the UK City of Culture competition.
We’ve been filming people, the length and breadth of the county, who share our passion for culture and the role of culture in harnessing Lancashire’s talents, assets and aptitude for reinvention - to craft a new and inclusive identity as the ‘Virtual City of Lancashire’.
You can see the evidence of this film at the following website address:-
“A city of creative citizens in which an eclectic collection of places and communities can re-imagine the alternative futures and vibrant identities that might yet be wrought from its proud heritage of influence, innovation and resilience.
We invite you to share this video and sign the bid by adding your own name to our roll-call. We believe that together we will win the competition for Lancashire and celebrate City of Culture right here in 2025”.
Let’s make this happen and strive to highlight the fantastic county we’re all so proud to live in.
