Keeping arts and culture at the heart of our communities

Creating a major cultural hub and venue


Plymouth City Council

The Box is a major scheme in the heart of Plymouth and a symbol for Plymouth’s current regeneration. Plymouth’s new cultural and art attraction is transforming the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, former Central Library and St Luke’s Church buildings into a major cultural and heritage venue. Led by Plymouth City Council, The Box is a partnership with the University of Plymouth and the National Museum of the Royal Navy. Major funding for the project has been secured from the City Council, a £14.8 million National Lottery grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), Arts Council England, Coastal Communities Fund, Garfield Weston Foundation, University of Plymouth, Wolfson Foundation, Interreg and Mayflower 400.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
