Paris Smith LLP become our second Premier Partner!


21 Jul, 2021

We are delighted to announce Paris Smith LLP as our latest Premier Partner, showing their commitment to the UK City of Culture bid and beyond. They join toob, who were announced as the first Premier Partner in September last year.


Peter Taylor, Managing Partner of Paris Smith, said “A successful bid will provide an enormous social and economic opportunity both for the city and the wider region to celebrate the wealth of cultural activity which already exists; showcasing the city’s diversity and using these strengths, along with collaboration between public, private and the voluntary sectors to ensure that Southampton becomes a global destination port city for future generations to thrive.”


As a past supporter of Mayflower 400 and Mayflower Theatre, Paris Smith has a longstanding commitment to culture in the city and we are delighted to have them back our bid.
