Arts and culture is a key part of the Plymouth Plan.

Plymouth Culture assist with the development of Plymouth’s cultural scene and have a number of major projects to support the growth of arts and culture in Plymouth. 

There are a number of exciting major developments happening including:

The Box

The Box is a ground-breaking new visitor attraction for Plymouth set to open in 2020.

Plans include the refurbishment of space in what were the Grade II listed museum and library buildings with a contemporary extension providing expanded facilities, plus transforming St Luke’s Church into the largest single GIS compliant gallery in the south west.

Market Hall

Market Hall will see a derelict Grade II listed building transformed into a cutting-edge space for digital skills, research, learning and entertainment.

The development is being led by RIO – the Real Ideas Organisation – in partnership with Plymouth City Council, i-DAT at Plymouth University, City College Plymouth, Devonport High School for Boys and some of the brightest young tech companies in the region.

This is a selection of data and analysis about arts and culture.
