Leicester welcomes Chair of Arts Council ahead of UK City of Culture 2017 bid

Arch Creatives’ Joe and Darren held a Photoshop design workshop at Soft Touch Arts on Friday and met City Mayor Peter Soulsby and Chair of Arts Council England, Sir Peter Bazalgette.

After visiting the Curve theatre, where the two Peters met the cast of Chicago and members of Leicester’s UK City of Culture bid team, they then visited Maker’s Yard, Phoenix Cinema and digital gallery before heading over to Soft Touch Arts on New Walk.

It was great that Arch Creative played their part in the day’s events. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport is due to announce the winning city on 20 November, so best of luck to all involved.

The event was attended by The Leicester Mercury and Midlands media company Pukaar News. You can see their video of the day’s events here:
