I'm particularly fortunate to be only an hour's drive from Hull - the designated 2017 Cultural Capital of the UK - a fine achievement, having beaten off other jewels in the crown such as Leicester and Swansea.

In fairness, things such as molds are sometimes referred to as 'cultures' by scientists.
