Our bid.

We are incredibly pleased and proud to share with you Lambeth’s bid to become London Borough of Culture. Our bid – Radical Hearts Open Minds is an expression of Lambeth’s vision for the future.

Our bid celebrates the borough’s proud history of alternative and original thought. It also looks to the future, using culture to inspire and tackle the major social challenges faced by Lambeth and London today. We want to create a future that’s inspired by our roots and driven by our imaginations.

We have had the pleasure of working with a range of organisations that reflect what makes Lambeth such a great place to live, work and visit. We could not have done this without the support, contributions and enthusiasm from you; our residents, partners and supporters. Thank you.

About the London Borough of Culture.

The Mayor of London launched a competition for London boroughs to bid for a Year of Culture. The competition will fund a game changing cultural programme.

Two winning boroughs will be named London Borough of Culture, one in 2019 and one in 2020. And up to six other boroughs will receive support to deliver bespoke cultural projects. Results are expected in February 2018.

Inspired by the UK City and European Capital of Culture Programmes, London Borough of Culture will put culture at the heart of the community, celebrating the unique and distinctive creativity, character and diversity of London’s people and places. Read more on the Mayor of London’s website.
