Leicester Celebrate Making Shortlist for UK City of Culture 2017

 

Leicester’s dream of becoming the UK City of Culture 2017 has come a step closer

today.

 

Judges from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) have confirmed that

Leicester is among the four cities to make it through to the next stage of the

selection process for the prestigious title.

 

The city will now have to submit a final bid – and wait until November to find out

if it will be named as only the second ever UK City of Culture, following in the

footsteps of current title holder Derry-Londonderry.
