For some time Southampton City Council has had an ambition to create a cultural heart to the city - an area alive with arts, heritage, entertainment, events, music, colour and dramatic architecture, a setting to which artists and performers will be drawn, and a place for the public to visit and enjoy.
The Cultural Quarter is a key part of our wider plans for the regeneration and economic development of the city. The Cultural Quarter proposals are helping to bring in around £175m of private and public investment to this area of the city. The investment in the Cultural Quarter is expected to bring in more than 2000 direct jobs and an additional £21m of visitor spend each year.
For more information on investment opportunities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
For a detailed look at what makes up the Cultural Quarter, below is a link to a pack of information and images. For the latest information check out our news page. We've also listed the three major new cultural developments coming to the Cultural Quarter and you can read more information about SeaCity Museum, Guildhall Square and Southampton's new arts complex.
SeaCity Museum is the latest important step in the development of Southampton's Cultural Quarter. Southampton Cultural Development Trust is spearheading the city's drive to complete the Cultural Quarter, with its new galleries, performance and film spaces, through fundraising and advocacy. www.culturesouthampton.org.uk.
