PERTH IS THE PLACE - ROSEANNA BACKS CITY OF CULTURE BID
Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, has welcomed the launch today (Friday) of the Perth City of Culture 2021 bid campaign.
Ms Cunningham said:
"The ideal for a City of Culture is a place that has an historic tradition of cultural engagement and enrichment along with an outstanding modern-day record of provision and support for the arts. In addition, a plan for future encouragement and development of the city's cultural life is important.
"To adapt the campaign's slogan, Perth is that place.
"The bid to secure the title and role of City of Culture 2021 has my full support. Perth and the surrounding areas have a huge amount to offer and this campaign will, I am sure, receive wide backing from the local community and beyond."
