Bidding to become UK City of Culture 2025 is a huge opportunity for Southampton; one which brings great cultural, artistic, social and economic benefits to the winning city. When Hull became UK City of Culture in 2017 they saw £300 million added to their tourism market, and almost £17 million added to their local economy.
Listening to our local community is at the heart of Southampton's bid and we want everyone in the city to get involved. By completing our online questionnaire, you can help us better understand the diversity of life and activity in Southampton. Culture means different things to all of us; from food, sport and art to music and public spaces. We want to know what is important to you in Southampton and how you would like to see the bid shape the future of our city.
So we need you. We need your ideas and opinions, as well as your creativity. Complete our questionnaire today and help us put Southampton on the map.
