  • More than 700 shops are located in the City Centre
  • New Investment around £3.5m for the City is earmarked
  • More than 1 million visitors come to Wolverhampton each year for cultural venues and the leisure entertainment offer.

This is clearly good news for Wolverhampton, a City that has a  contains six venues that are listed and classified as national/regional cultural assets.

Councillor Phil Bateman said ” I am sure we will all be pleased to see these important developments.  But we can do more, and we must do more. I would like to see Wolverhampton building its economy  by using its historical past more. I want to see more tourists coming to explore the great history that Wolverhampton has. I want to see partnerships expanded to see areas where the volunteer groups in the City get help to deliver events.

There is a lot more to be done!”IMG_0602 New Hoizons for Wolverhampton
