Local Heroes Campaign

Every library has their story of the famous writer who used to sit in “that chair over there”, and every theatre recalls the superstar who once played ‘Orphan Number Three’ in “Oliver!”

Our new ‘Local Heroes’ campaign will celebrate these stories, their part in the artistic and cultural heritage of communities, and what theatres, orchestras, art galleries, arts centres (and many more) contribute to the UK’s reputation as a world leader in the creative industries.
