The Letchworth Culture Project is a new initiative providing temporary spaces to the local community to run arts, culture and heritage projects and learning activities.
Rooted in a belief in the power of culture to have a wide ranging positive impact on the wellbeing of the community, the aim of The Letchworth Culture Project is to provide more opportunities for people to create and engage with culture in the town as well as help Letchworth become more widely known for its cultural offering.
Whatever your project - as long as it’s rooted in arts, culture or heritage and will engage the local community, we want to support you. We have a range of empty retail spaces available in the town for use by community led projects of all shapes and sizes.

The first projects have been designed with Covid restrictions in mind - exhibitions that can be safely viewed through shop windows from the outside. For future projects, and as restrictions ease, we want to encourage people to use these spaces in more varied and innovative ways - exhibitions open to the public, events and performances, workshops or classes - all and any kind of cultural activity you can think of.
