Leamington supports, promotes and enjoys many different types of cultural opportunities from theatre and art to museums and live music venues. There is a good mix of venues throughout town which are accessible to all and cater for many different tastes. We have lots of community events taking place through the year such as Art in the Park and the Food and Drink Festival, and consultation showed residents think we have a great number and range of community facilities such as community centres and libraries.

Old Town contains the highest proportion of BME population and houses the Gurdwara, Hindu temple, Ahmadiyya mosque and Sunni mosque. Local annual events take place such as the Mela and the Diwali Lights but we found that very few people of different ethnicities attend. Opportunities therefore are available to increase cross-cultural experience and relations.

This theme will cover:

  • Supporting existing and new events
  • Provision of services – gaps?
  • Creative Quarter
  • Future use of the Town Hall
  • Protection of other heritage assets
  • Possible use of community ownership
  • Public art and gateways
  • Student/resident rapport and involvement in town
