Information about the cultural and heritage strategy for King's Lynn

Culture can be transformative in our places and our communities to create positive sense of belonging and 'pride of place' linked to the celebration of heritage, and the participation in arts or creative activities.

We are working in partnership with Arts Council England to prepare a new ten year Cultural & Heritage Strategy for King’s Lynn. The creation of a Cultural & Heritage Strategy is needed to bring together our array of creative partners, residents and businesses on the priorities to support the development of Creative Industries in the town. A Cultural & Heritage Strategy is key to align and bring together currently disparate activity to create a sector leading strategy which will enable the leverage of further investment to enable the cultural sector to grow and flourish further.

We are currently in the process of procuring an organisation to help us and work with our communities to prepare the strategy which will initially focus on King’s Lynn, with a view to inform the development of a wider strategy for West Norfolk in the future. The aim is for the strategy to be ultimately determined and adopted by arts, culture and heritage organisations, stimulating and responding to the needs of the local community.

Further details on the consultation and engagement opportunities that will be available to help us shape the strategy will be updated on this page.
