To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, what support his Department is providing for UK cities considering a bid for the title of 2023 European Capital of Culture.
27 January 2015
The UK's selection competition for the title of 2023 European Capital of Culture is due to be launched before the end of 2016. The DCMS will consider how best to support potential bidders closer to the time. The award to Liverpool as a European Capital of Culture in 2008 has been of great benefit to the city, and we look forward to similar successes in the future.
