Crawley Borough Council has been awarded £15,000 Arts Council England National Lottery funding to help stage a major 70th birthday event.

Working with producers Same Sky and Cohesion Plus, the council will stage The BIG Seven-0, on November 25, in the Memorial Gardens to celebrate the New Town’s 70th birthday.

A council spokesman said: “The BIG Seven-0 will harness the cultural diversity of the town that engages children, young people and families in a celebratory way; independent artists and established and emerging community groups will explore the cultural heritage of the town – past, present and future.

“Crawley has an ever-changing, vibrant and diverse cultural landscape. This will be captured by our artistic collaboration with Same Sky and Cohesion Plus.”
