NEW DATE: 23rd of January 2020

Hosted by charitable trust Newport Live

Newport, Wales


Community Leisure UK invites you to their culture seminar on December 5th in Newport. The aim of this seminar is to give a platform to charitable trusts to discuss their work, share best practice and discuss challenges regarding the development and delivery of public cultural services and the management of cultural facilities. We take a wide approach to defining cultural facilities- and services, which ranges from theatres, museums, and libraries to community- or town halls, visitor centres, and cinemas.

The seminar is also meant to give the opportunity to discuss expectations for (future) collaboration and partnerships between charitable trusts and national development- and representative bodies such as libraries, arts- and cultural representatives, local government, and health representatives.

If you are a charitable trust or a national development- or representative body who is interested in learning more about charitable trusts, we very much welcome you to join this session. If you are interested in attending, please contact Jennifer Huygen at

Thank you for your interest!
