Whilst best-known for its industrial heritage - including steel, coal and pottery production - Stoke-on-Trent also enjoys a healthy cultural scene. In the 1870s it became a major spot for the Northern Soul movement, and there are still several arts and entertainment venues across the city including galleries, museums and the arthouse cinema, Stoke Film Theatre. This thriving arts landscape even earned Stoke a spot on the UK City of Culture 2021 shortlist. For fans of live entertainment, Stoke-on-Trent theatre and music events are regularly staged in performance venues across the city, and its largest theatre, Regent Theatre, is a popular receiving house for shows including West End musicals, plays, comedy and its own in-house pantomime. Touring productions of top musicals including SIX and The Cher Show lead the city's entertainment schedule in 2022.
