Welcome to Lancaster Arts City, the home of the Lancaster Arts Partnership

LAP is a consortium of over 20 creative and cultural organisations all within the Lancaster, Morecambe and surrounding District.

Lancaster, Morecambe and the surrounding rural areas are a vibrant, throbbing hub of cultural activity. Home to award-winning festivals and cultural events, amazing creative organisations and artists, historic landmarks, and a beautiful city, coast and countryside. We are an historic district crossed by canals and the River Lune, perfectly situated between two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a place of quality, scale and magnitude.

Lancaster and South Cumbria’s cultural pedigree is acclaimed by Arts Council England as having the biggest critical mass of culture, outside of Manchester and Liverpool, in the North West.
