Capital of Culture

See here for more information

Although I live in Washington and by default Newcastle / Gateshead should be my sworn enemy (:rolleyes: ;) ) I have witnessed the dramatic improvements there in recent years. In my opinion "the south" gets everything so I think it would be nice if a northern city won.

Was anybody even aware of this? Apparently people who don't live in the areas involved haven't been made aware of this vote, which is very important to the people who live in these places.




you like the greatness of it Shukes?! :p

    What type of culture are they looking for?

    Edit:

    Oh right...just read the website.
    I've not got a clue who should get the award.

    Sure, Bradford's got some nice victorian architecture, but the adverts for the thingy were mostly based on Gareth-fucking-Gates.

    I've been aware of it for some time, because it's all the local newspaper seems to talk about, and theres big posters on the windows of buildings around my college.

    Why Oxford? What's wrong with Cambridge? lol
    and birmingham is fully of concrete, i hope somewhere up north wins so they can have cameras following them round asking why they think it's so great there. (sorry have had tv people do that to me before and it's so annoying)
