#Newport25 - City of Culture Bid

Cultural vision

Newport is the gateway to south Wales, with ours and neighbouring communities diverse and rich in culture, tradition and language.


Newport’s location at the mouth of the River Usk has attracted visitors since the first Celtic settlers 2,000 years ago.

Partners and Process

Newport and the wider Gwent area have entered an ‘Expression of Interest’ to become the UK City of Culture 2025.
