Cambridge City Council

Investment in arts and culture

We are a major investor in the arts and cultural life of the city; the investment we've made focuses on achieving our strategic vision through arts and culture.


Arts and culture is one of the priorities in our community grants scheme. Go to our community grants for arts and culture page for examples of activities we have supported.


We also commission specific activities in relation to agreed plans, in particular linked to our work through partnerships.


We have a long term contract in place with Cambridge Live to deliver key elements of the arts and cultural programme in Cambridge, including the Cambridge Corn Exchange and Cambridge Folk Festival.

External investment

We work with Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and other funders to maximize the benefit of external funding within the city, both in relation to jointly funded organisations, and more broadly.
