Creating a New Cultural Strategy

I have always considered it one of my main priorities to campaign to improve Salisbury to make it a more attractive place for my constituents to live and for tourists to visit.

The future prosperity of South Wiltshire depends on going beyond merely relying on our world-leading heritage sites or our retail outlets. We need to do more to harness our cultural and creative sectors to put Salisbury on the map as a destination of choice for music, theatre, cinema, and the library.

In 2018, I brought together key stakeholders from Wiltshire Council and Wiltshire Creative to help commission a new cultural strategy for Salisbury. As part of this I am pushing for a major capital investment to create a brand new cultural/creative quarter as part of the Maltings redevelopment.


English Tourism Week - Visit Salisbury!

It’s English Tourism Week and I have been out and about all day in Salisbury, meeting with local businesses, retailers and attractions. Salisbury is one of England’s finest cathedral cities, and there is so much for local people and tourists alike to enjoy.
