Great Exhibition of the North

Sheffield BID has pledged support to the City’s bid to host the Great Exhibition of the North in July 2017.

If successful, the city centre will benefit from £5m of government funding to deliver the Exhibition and a further £5m of match funding through commercial partnerships.

This £10m festival will be celebration of arts, culture and design, set to take place in July and August 2018. City leaders, including the Council and both universities, have thrown their weight behind Sheffield’s bid to host the Exhibition.

The Great Exhibition of the North offers a multitude of opportunities to deliver on a number of the BID’s strategic objectives.

The bid to host is being led by the Culture Consortium and the outcome will be known in October.
