Gatewen Training Services supports Wrexham’s bid for UK City of Culture 2025
(Posted on 08/02/22)
We’re proud to be supporting Wrexham’s bid in the hotly contested UK City of Culture 2025 competition. The UK City of Culture title has opened to non-cities for the first time and it is the only Welsh region that has made the long list of eight areas competing this year. If successful, Wrexham would be the first Welsh region to win the title.
UK City of Culture status would be a transformational moment in a Wrexham’s growth and this year’s competition is an opportunity to put culture and creativity at the heart of Wrexham’s COVID recovery and growth plans.
Winning the title would also have enormous benefits in attracting investment, creating jobs, attracting visitors. According to an evaluation carried out on 2017 UK City of Culture winner Hull, the city went on to attract more than five million visitors, £219.5 million of investment and nearly 800 new jobs.
Why not join us in getting on board and pledging your support to Wrexham’s bid in the UK City of Culture 2025 competition.
