Article on Birminghams' bid to be European City of Culture in 2008 in The Birmingham Post.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>It is now six years since someone first asked me if I could imagine Birmingham ever being European Capital of Culture.<P>We were in the departure lounge of Birmingham airport at the time - on our way to Copenhagen, which held the title in 1996 - and my instinctive answer was no. Even though Birmingham had some internationally serious cultural institutions like the CBSO and Birmingham Royal Ballet, I was acutely conscious that it lacked the strength in depth of European cities of similar, or smaller, size. Not enough theatres, not nearly enough art galleries.<P><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=020211007053&query=ballet" TARGET=_blank> <B> MORE </B> </A>

Birmingham is one of 12 British towns and cities competing to be European capital of culture in 2008 and distinguished judges have now completed their final trundle from Inverness to Canterbury as they prepare to announce a shortlist next month
