As the bid for St Davids and the Hundred of Dewisland to become the UK City of Culture in 2021 gathers pace, members of the public are being encouraged to come together to help create a bid worthy of winning the illustrious title.
Events will be held in St Davids, Fishguard and Solva to provide more information about the UK City of Culture initiative and also give people a chance to tell members of the bid team what they think is important about the culture, history and traditions of the area.
Public engagement sessions will be held in St Davids, Fishguard and Solva to help shape the bid for St Davids and Hundred of Dewisland to become UK City of Culture in 2021.
Mike Cavanagh, Head of Cultural Services at Pembrokeshire County Council, said: “These events will provide a background to the UK City of Culture and the bidding process, but more importantly will provide people with an opportunity to share their ideas and help create a world-class bid that will stand apart from the rival campaigns.
“Although small in scale compared to the other bidding cities, this area of Pembrokeshire punches way above its weight in terms of culture and heritage. However, we need input from as many people as possible to develop a year-long cultural programme that will stand out from the rest and secure the St Davids bid a place in the next stage of the process.”
The events will be held at:
The same information will be presented at all three sessions.
