Residents asked for views on arts and culture across South Kesteven

Residents are being asked for their views on arts and culture across South Kesteven.

South Kesteven District Council’s Cultural Strategy will play a central part in ensuring the rich heritage and culture of the district is celebrated and built upon.

A consultation is offering the chance for people to help shape plans for the Council’s future cultural offer which reflects and recognises the opportunities within, and demands of, a post-pandemic environment. The consultation closes on 27 January.

Key to the new strategy will be a demonstration of the positive impact that arts and cultural activity can have on mental health and social wellbeing.

Cllr Adam Stokes, deputy leader of the council and cabinet member for finance and leisure, said: “We know how important it is for us all to have opportunities to participate in cultural activities.

“We want to find out how people like to spend their spare time, and what is most important to them. We can then make sure that the funding we have is directed towards arts and culture activities and events which are the most beneficial for our local communities.

“Please use this opportunity to have your say.”

The consultation on the strategy is open until the 27 January. To take part visit

Printed copies of the survey will also be available at The Guildhall Arts Centre, Grantham, Stamford Arts Centre and Bourne Corn Exchange.
