Bexley makes its bid for London Borough of Culture

Bexley’s bid to become London Borough of Culture was submitted on 30 November. 

The detailed submission was backed up with supporting letters from creative, business and community partners, the Leader of the Council Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE and Chief Executive Gill Steward.

It included a link to a new and original video produced by Bird College that highlights the many heritage sites across the borough. 

A video of support from senior Council officers and Cabinet Members outlining why winning the bid would be so key to the borough was also part of the bid pack. 

The decision as to who becomes the first London Borough of Culture will be announced in February 2018.
