THE PEOPLE’S FESTIVAL

1


We all Love Liverpool, but what does Liverpool Love?

......................................... “It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the inaugural Liverpool Loves festival.” Joshua Boyd - Festival Director and Managing Director, Orb CIC This annual celebration was borne from our love of the Liverpool region. A region that is steeped in history but not defined by it, a brave and bold people full of character, honesty, humility and personality. A city that has surpassed all expectations to become one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking around. It’s a beautiful place to live, work, do business, explore unique cultures, visit for the weekend or stay for the rest of your life. So on that note – we wanted to create a series of events that knits all of these amazing things together

2

to really showcase what we have to offer here and to represent the new identity of our great city region. Liverpool Loves serves to champion arts and culture organisations as well as our fantastic independent businesses. It serves to employ locally, give work to local companies and support the visitor economy. It’s a platform for anyone and everyone to get involved and get behind their city. We want you to welcome this festival, embrace it and make it your own. A special thanks to the amazing people and organisations that have funded, partnered or contributed to this event, it couldn’t have happened without you.

It’s ‘The People’s Festival’ – created with nothing but Love.
