  • City of Culture - We're Backing The Bid
  • You may have heard that Perth is currently aiming to be chosen as The UK City of Culture 2021. This prestigious status is a chance for cities to use arts and culture to raise the profile of their creative reputation right across the country.

    The first UK City of Culture in 2013 was Derry-Londonderry and in January this year, Hull picked up the mantle for 2017.  Could Perth be next?

    Well, here at Alexander Residence we like to think so which is why we’re offering up our support to the bid and making this public announcement of our belief in this wonderful city.

    Having been open for business for many years, we have been in the privileged position of welcoming visitors from around the globe to Perth and our location right in the heart of the city centre makes us an ideal choice for those people looking to enjoy the arts and culture on offer.

    From groups of friends clutching tickets for any number of big events and shows, to the artists and actors taking part in the productions on offer, we see first-hand just how much culture impacts on attracting people to Perth.  And it’s not just that we have the events on offer; the quality of the events and acts is superb and the feedback we receive is always fantastic.

    Aside from these very obvious connections, Perth also plays an important part in Scotland’s cultural history, literary legacy and modern day innovation. 

    What we’d love to see is Perth being in a position to offer more of all of this;  to develop and grow into an even more vibrant, even more attractive small city that has famously been quoted as ‘punching well above its weight’.

    Here at AR, it is our promise to help all of our guests to enjoy their stay in Perth and the surrounding area and we know that bringing home this prestigious title to our Small City will help us deliver exactly that.  More reasons to visit, more opportunities for you to try something new and see something different and, we hope, even more to add to the list things you’ll tell your friends and family on your return home.

    #PerthIsThePlace and Alexander Residence is delighted to be backing the bid!
