Green light for boost to County Durham’s culture and regeneration programme

Councillors have pledged £2m towards plans for an enhanced three-year programme of world-class events and community-led activities across County Durham.

Durham County Council will now work with partners to progress bids to secure at least the same sum, creating a minimum budget of £4m to run a “bigger and better” programme from 2024 to 2026.

It comes as County Durham looks to cement its place as “The Culture County” after becoming the first county ever to be shortlisted for UK City of Culture status. It also follows confirmation that tourism contributed more than £1bn to the county’s economy for the first time ever last year.
