Eleven cities will compete against Leicester to be the UK's next Capital of Culture. They include Aberdeen, Chester, Hastings and Swansea.
Key figures from the arts, business and media in Leicester now have six weeks to prepare for the bid.
It's thought that the the discovery of Richard III's remains, the National Space Centre, The Curve, The Guildhall and the Golden Mile will all help promote the bid.
Despite missing out on becoming the UK City of Culture 2017, Leicester will still provide people with the highlights of its bid from 2014.
In the next few hours Leicester will find out if its bid to become the City of Culture 2017 has been successful or not.
