Why County Durham’s UK City of Culture bid would be a game changer for the North East

With just a month to go until County Durham finds out if it will be the next UK City of Culture, Durham 2025 bid director Alison Clark emphasises the transformational impact the title would have on the entire region.

To say the weeks ahead are important for County Durham is putting it mildly. By the end of May, we will know whether our countywide bid for UK City of Culture 2025 has made it over the finishing line. Securing this title would unlock a wealth of opportunities for our communities, turbo charge our cultural and economic ambitions and fix an international spotlight firmly on the North East.
