Wrexham reaches longlist for UK City of Culture 2025

Wrexham has reached the long list for the accolade of being the UK City of Culture in 2025.

Wales’ Deputy Minister for Arts and Sport, Dawn Bowden said: “I’m delighted Wrexham County Borough has reached the UK City of Culture 2025 longlist.

“We have a unique and wonderful culture here in Wales, which we’re all incredibly proud of. I want the world to know how wonderful it is too.

“Being named UK City of Culture 2025 would be truly transformational for Wrexham, and would be a real boost as we look forward to a brighter, more prosperous future. Congratulations to all at Team Wrexham, and the best of luck for the next stages of the competition."

The longlist, unveiled by new Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries today, also includes Cornwall, Southampton, Derby and Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, Bradford, County Durham and Stirling.

The winning city, which will succeed Coventry, will be announced in spring next year.

For the first time, each listee will receive £40,000 worth of investment.

They will all work with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to finalise their bids before the shortlist is announced early next year.
