About Us

charlotte-bowenEstablished in 2010, The Culture House is a leader in cultural delivery in North East Lincolnshire and beyond. We are passionate about connecting people with culture and work to hard to widen access, where little cultural opportunity exists.

We work with a wide mix of outstanding artists and in a full range of spaces and places, to ensure that local people benefit from excellent and inspiring cultural experiences no matter where they live.

The Culture House is committed to:

  • increasing engagement and participation in arts, culture and heritage
  • using culture as a tool to impact on perceptions, well-being and place
  • celebrating and utilising unique local landscapes, spaces and places
  • supporting talent development
  • providing a platform for a diverse range of artists to reach new and diverse audiences

Culture House activity is often delivered in partnership, enabling multiple agendas to be met while progressing and widening a cultural offer

Projects include:

  • Cleethorpes Jazz Festival, a high quality event presenting the best in UK Jazz alongside a free fringe programme in local spaces
  • an Open Spaces programme that incorporates a five date outdoor summer programme in People’s Park, Grimsby – presenting local, regional and national artists and quality live music to local audiences
  • production of a quality culture programme for Grimsby’s Big Christmas Event featuring national touring artists
  • Working with national, regional and local stake-holders to deliver projects that achieve objectives including audience development and town centre development
  • Bespoke event and festival development and production focusing on specific place and heritage themes
  • working with a range of agencies including mental health charities to support their objectives

Lead by Charlotte Bowen and supported by a team of freelancers, The Culture House takes great pride in its work.
