With Nottingham’s bid for European Capital of Culture 2023 well underway, Nottingham businesses are pledging their support to back the city’s innovative campaign.
Bruton Knowles has recently joined the number of local businesses showing support to the bid, along with more than 3,000 people who have all signed up, by offering creative ideas and helping to boost the social media presence.
James Bailey, partner at Bruton Knowles said: “We are really proud to be supporting Nottingham’s bid for European Capital of Culture 2023. If Nottingham was successful it would be a significant achievement for our city, not only for those involved in the cultural sector but for all of Nottingham’s businesses.
“It’s a huge accomplishment for Nottingham to be recognised for its cultural offering, creative concepts and its strong links to literature, art, food and music. The title would be an excellent way to bring in tourism, jobs and investment into the city.
It will also help generate business growth through investment, and attract young graduates who have huge potential to help the city grow.”
Nottingham is up against Belfast, Dundee, Leeds and Milton Keynes to win the cultural award, which will help boost the city’s economy and help drive inward investment.
James explained why the bid was so important to the city. He added: “Significant investment has recently been made in the city, with many major developments taking place this year. The Broadmarsh centre is just one of these developments being made, which is part of a £250m scheme to regenerate the southern entrance to the city.
“Nottingham is a vibrant, cultural and diverse city, that has all the qualities investors and organisations are looking for to develop and grow. Nottingham’s economy is certainly growing, and we are looking forward to continuing our support for Nottingham’s 2023 bid.”
