Welcome to The City Culture Corner

Welcome to The City Culture Corner. Here, the arts and the stereotypical business world of the City of London can intertwine, collide and create. With an overwhelming amount of cultural activity and hotspots in the City, it is often difficult to stay abreast of interesting venues and events in the City. The City Culture Corner will be the place to stay one step ahead of the City’s cultural beat. With podcasts and promotions, introductions to artists, venue launches and events — there’s nothing you can’t be a part of.
