    Default The Capital of Culture?

    Not a lot of people know about Stavanger's big moment. Or at least, not a lot of people in the UK, for whom there is only one capital of culture, Liverpool.


    ADVERTISING




    But since 2000, there have been two capitals of culture on four other occasions.

    Funny how this fact is conveniently forgotten over here...

    You're bound to only be bothered about your own though and BBC Radio Merseyside have mentioned on a few occassions that they also have it and that Basle and Dublin and Graz and Glasgow etc etc have all had it in the past. I wonder if Stavanger know of ours as they're busy bigging up their own?

    They both know about each other, a delegation from Stavanger visited in 2004. I'm sure I read something in the echo around then that Liverpool wasnt too keen on sharing the title, seeing itself as the far more important of the capitals

    This is so bollocks - in 2000 there were nine 'Capitals of Culture'. WTF?!
