Northern Culture All-Party Parliamentary Group


The Northern Culture APPG seeks to promote and champion the huge economic contribution made by the North’s cultural sector and build consensus. Providing a united voice on pan-Northern culture asks and priorities in order to shape and influence future Government decision making, as well as generating debate on how to boost skills, create equal opportunities for all, promote diversity and support ambitions to empower future generations, the NC APPG will work to level-up investment for Northern culture to empower future generations.

This year the Northern Culture APPG will be holding a major inquiry into what Northern Culture needs to rebuild, rebalance and recover. This inquiry will produce a bespoke ‘State of the North’ report on Northern Culture, providing a united voice on pan-Northern cultural asks and priorities in order to shape and influence future Government decision making and policy.
