Welcome to the first edition of ACE Liverpool – your very own pocket guide to the city’s urban chic and cultural quarter. We thrive on the hustle and bustle of creative living and look to establish a community wherein people engage with arts & culture in a fast-moving social space – We like to talk. A lot. We discuss, tweet, share, post and debate the cultural happenings of Liverpool and want you to get involved. This issue is just a taster of what ACE has to offer, from features and interviews with the hottest artists to hit our cobbled streets, to Fashion, Food and general musings on Creativity. We are Liverpool’s cultural hub in printed form. Never good under pressure, I’ve decided the best way to describe ACE is to give you three reasons why you should carry on reading: if you like local creativity we’ve got it; if you like free things, that’s us and well the name says it all. We’re just pretty… Ace. If you’d like to be featured in ACE or you would like to write, photograph or advertise with us please get in touch. ENJOY and let us know what you think @ACELiverpool or Facebook works too!
