Culture Diary Launches today: a new free tool for organisers of UK cultural events at home and abroad
Following its success supporting nearly 4,500 cultural events planned in the capital during the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Culture Diary has now gone from a London tool to a global tool, bought together through a unique collaboration between Arts Council England, British Council, Department for Culture, Media & Sport, GREAT Britain campaign, Foreign & Commonwealth Office, the Mayor of London, Visit Britain and UK Trade & Investment.

- Find mutually beneficial partnerships
- Improve communication with other UK arts organisations, and government and arts development agencies
- Be promoted internationally by GREAT partners including across partner websites and social media channels
- Discover ways to expand projects abroad with the help of GREAT partners’ network.
The tool now has the extended capability to host details of UK touring events overseas as well as upcoming national campaigns such as First World War Centenary and Shakespeare 400 which will provide much-valued input for British cultural diplomacy, trade, education and tourism promotion around the world.
