Liverpool is going to be the city to visit next summer according to Laura and Paul at Car Hire Liverpool Airport, as another festival for the public will be taking place.
A new free city festival will take place in Liverpool at the Pier Head, celebrating the best food, culture and business. It will be called ‘Liverpool Loves’ and will run from 6th to the 8th August against the backdrop of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It has been created by Debbie Boyd, director of Orb Events, who created Liverpool Pride 2010 and is co-creator of the Brazilica Festival. She said “We want to celebrate our city with a festival that gives something back – this is exactly what we will have with Liverpool Loves. What we are striving to achieve is a springboard to get to that next level. Everyone needs a helping hand along the way, and we want to provide the platform to do just that – while celebrating our achievements and looking towards the future together.”
The Thursday and Friday will be more focused on business, while the Saturday is billed as festival day. The focus falls on four main areas – Liverpool Loves Culture, Liverpool Loves Business, Liverpool Loves Food and Liverpool Loves Well-being.
The Business Big Top, taking place on the Thursday and Friday, will include a commercial marketplace, seminar stages for guest speakers, networking spaces and work stations. There will also be a themed gala dinner.
Rosie Jolly, Chief Executive, Mayoral Lead for Social and Community Enterprise added “I am delighted to support Liverpool Loves which will be an inspirational event next summer enabling businesses in all sectors and communities to participate. Any event which provides a platform for local business to promote themselves should be applauded and will be of great benefit to the city and the wider city region.”
