The People's Choice

Pride in our Culture

Culture and the creative arts are an incredibly important part of our identity. Whether it’s our museums, art galleries, theatres or our music, they all provide huge benefits, from bringing people together to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime events, getting involved in creative activities, and encouraging people to visit the city region for the first (and not the last) time.

We are hugely proud of our cultural heritage and want to celebrate what makes all of our areas special to the people who live and work within them.

 

Introducing the awards

One percent for culture

To celebrate and support our fantastic cultural assets and the benefits they bring to the people in our communities, Liverpool City Region is the first in the country to commit to spending the equivalent of 1% of its annual £30 million devolution funding from government to support cultural activities.

We also offer significant support for the fantastic work taking place in the city region.  We contributed £5 million to support Liverpool 2018, the celebration of the 10th anniversary of Liverpool’s tenure as European Capital of Culture.

That investment supported a full programme of events, including China Dream, Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta, the finale of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and the return of the Giants, for which 1.5 million people descended on the city region.
