THE CULTURAL QUARTER
SeaCity Museum is a significant new location in Southampton’s growing Cultural Quarter. The Cultural Quarter is central to Southampton’s social and economic regeneration programme to create a vibrant, dynamic, cultural heart to the city: an area alive with arts, heritage, entertainment, events, music, colour and dramatic architecture. Notable sites include the Guildhall Square,Southampton City Art Gallery, The Guildhall, Mayflower Theatre, City Library and Archives, BBC South Broadcasting House, and the historic city centre parks. Further development to this area is planned in the form of a new arts complex. Work is due to commence in autumn 2012. The complex will offer a mix of contemporary arts programmes and events and include two performing arts auditoria, art galleries, a film / media hub, 6 restaurant / cafe units and 29 one, two and three bed apartments.
Southampton Cultural Development Trust is spearheading the city’s drive to complete the Cultural Quarter, with its new galleries, performance and film spaces, through fundraising and advocacy. to find out more click here
