Culture Burnley


We’ve been speaking to people and organisations across the borough to find out what is important to them. From this we’ve created a new cultural framework that will help us to better connect the great things that are already happening, and to grow and deliver more over the next few years. The framework will help us to:

  • Involve more people from the local community in planning and shaping the activities that are delivered
  • Work more closely with schools and youth organisations to create more opportunities for young people
  • Better promote what is happening across the borough
  • Work with others to deliver more, and bigger events
  • Upskill and employ more people
  • Ensure that we are better responding to diverse needs and interests to allow more local people to take part
  • Raise funds to invest in our cultural buildings, organisations and creative individuals

We know how great Burnley’s culture is and we want to share that with as many people as possible. Watch this space for more information coming soon.
