A message from our Chair of Trustees

Southampton 2025 Trust has been established to deliver Southampton's bid to become UK City of Culture on behalf of the city. Led by Bid Director, Claire Whitaker OBE, the Trust is overseen by an independent chair and dedicated board of trustees, including our Chair of Trustees, Cllr. Satvir Kaur.


In the week of International Women's Day, we caught up with Cllr. Kaur to hear about the key role that culture will play in Southampton's recovery post Covid19. Southampton born and bred, Cllr Kaur talks everything that our city has to offer and how bidding to become UK City of Culture will unlock Southampton's potential.
