Event organisers looking to promote local events, amateur theatre, food, community and music events across the UK.


With cultural events in cities across the UK at the forefront of what TicketSource do, we thought we’d find out which city hosted the most cultural attractions per square mile. Many have ranked cities in the UK based only on the number of cultural attractions, but no one had made the connection between the boundary size and the number of cultural elements within that area.

Using a combination of data from TripAdvisor data and city sizes from Wikipedia we were able to work out how many cultural attractions each city had (TripAdvisor) and divide this across the cities footprint (Wikipedia). The data generated some interesting results, enabling us to crown Inverness as the city with the most culture per square mile.

We were then able to pitch the rankings to relevant news and cultural publications across the UK generating top-tier media coverage and relevant, high quality back links.


The campaign was featured on ITV news online and ITV then created video content interviewing residents of the city that ranked the lowest for culture.
