Town of Culture goes digital

Bury Town of culture extended to 2021

In December 2019 Bury won the accolade to become the very first Greater Manchester Town of Culture, an award based on the UK City of Culture concept introduced in 2009.

Sadly, due to the coronavirus pandemic and restrictions on public gatherings, many of Bury's cultural attractions had to close to the public, and many public events are on hold until 2021.

However, we're delighted that our Town of Culture programme will be able to continue as we have been awarded the Town of Culture accolade for 2021.

Our cultural organisations across Bury have rallied to ensure that culture and creativity can continue digitally, for all to enjoy.
