Abbotsbury gets involved and supports Merton Council to become the
Borough of Culture 2019.
Merton Council believes it has what it takes to be crowned London’s ‘Borough of Culture’ in an exciting initiative recently launched by the Mayor of London.
Two of the capital’s 32 boroughs will hold the title in 2019 and 2020 hosting a series of events throughout the year that celebrate the spirit of their communities.
To be in with a chance of winning, the bids must meet the following three criteria: celebrating creativity, making an impact and deliverability.
The two winners will share a £1million pot with a further six boroughs receiving funding for specific projects.
