Be part of it.

From the local street to the international stage, Lambeth’s culture is worn on its sleeve and felt in its heart.

Together let’s ask the radical questions about what an inclusive and diverse culture can mean for us — a dynamic, talented community in the centre of the world’s most exciting city.

Let’s create a future that’s inspired by our roots and driven by our imaginations.

We need your ideas.

On the 1st December, Lambeth will submit a bid to the Mayor of London, competing for the London Borough of Culture title for 2019 or 2020.

Lambeth’s bid will celebrate the borough’s proud history of alternative and original thought. It will also look to the future, using culture to inspire and tackle the major social challenges faced by Lambeth and London today.

By submitting an idea, you can help to shape a remarkable London Borough of Culture bid that will benefit communities across the borough. Let’s create a future that’s inspired by our roots and driven by our imaginations.

About the London Borough of Culture.

The Mayor of London has 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.

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.
