EVENTS

JULY & AUGUST

SoMAC is organised by Marketing Gloucester, whose brief is to raise the city’s profile locally and nationally as a great place to live, work, study and visit, and supported through funding from the Arts Council England.

The funding is a significant boost for the city and is recognition for the work of Marketing Gloucester, Gloucester City Council and their partners including Create Gloucestershire, on improving the cultural offer in the city, engaging with local communities and providing the framework to develop grass roots talent.

Marketing Gloucester would like to thank the Arts Council England, Gloucester City Council and SoMAC Platinum Sponsors, WSP Solicitors and Listers Toyota, for making the very first Summer of Music Arts and Culture possible.
