Picture: DENISE BRADLEY Our fine city is rich with culture, with great theatres, vibrant festivals, stunning heritage and a whole array of other arts delights for people to enjoy. Norwich proudly wears the badge of being the first city in the country to be crowned a UNESCO City of Literature, was just last year one of the four nationwide hosts of the cutting edge British Art Show 8, and the Norfolk and Norwich Festival is one of the big four UK international arts festivals. It also boasts a world class gallery of art at the Sainsbury Centre, has brilliant museums including Norwich Castle, and is fast making a name for itself as a key destination in the music scene with the likes of Radio One's Big Weekend coming to Earlham Park in 2015 and pop superstars Take That choosing to head to Carrow Road as part of their Wonderland louis vuitton shoes europe tour later this year. With all this and more highlighting Norwich as a great place for arts and entertainment, should the city now also be putting its hands up to bid for the UK City of Culture 2021 status too? What it means to be UK City of Culture Since winning the UK City of Culture 2017 title four years ago, Hull has seen a 1bn investment and it is estimated the city's economy will have a 60m boost this year. Among the most famous events linked to its City of Culture status has been Spencer Tunick's Sea of Hull project which saw more than 3,000 people strip naked and be painted blue. The striking images from the project are to be exhibited in the city later this year as part of Hull's busy UK City of Culture 2017 programme of events. Now communities across the country have until the the end of April to sumbit bids to become UK City of Culture 2021 with the Heritage Lottery Fund pledging to give 3m to the winning city. The 2021 winner will need to prove its bid is centred around heritage, and it will build on existing investment it gets from the lottery fund. Eleven towns and cities have currently put themselves in the running. They are Perth, Paisley, Stoke on Trent, Sunderland, Coventry, Hereford, Warrington, Portsmouth, Wells, Swansea and St Davids. And as can be seen from the current City of Culture 2017, the rewards can be great, with Hull having a major national spotlight cast on the city and expecting to see its economy have a 60m boost this year. Previously Norwich bid to become UK City of Culture 2013, reaching the finals alongside Londonderry, Birmingham and Sheffield, and seeing off competition from 29 other places.

However Norwich City Council has confirmed it will not be putting the city forward for the 2021 title. He said: "As well as being the first English UNESCO world city of literature, Norwich has also been named as the third most cultural city in the UK in a recent report, so I think it's clear that our excellent reputation for culture and heritage is stronger than ever.

"We are fortunate to be home to so many individuals and organisations who deliver a great range of projects and events year in, year out; coming together to provide such a sims 3 louis vuitton shoes thriving cultural scene." Key leaders across the city's arts scene have also reflected that Norwich already has a great reputation for being a brilliant city of culture, even without the special title. Pasco Q Kevlin, director of Norwich Arts Centre, said: "I already think we are the city of culture, but I would be very happy to support any new initiatives that helps the rest of the country realise how great Norwich is."
