Celebrate on 20/08
The Liverpool Culture Company is asking local organisations and businesses to help celebrate the city’s European Capital of Culture status.
Each year on August 20 – 20/08 – groups across the region are encouraged to celebrate Liverpool’s 08 success by making an ‘offer’ for the day. An offer can take the form of free or discounted entrance, or a special event or promotion.
Last year 20/08 day included hundreds of offers. People were given the chance to sample a huge selection of activities – from free lessons in rock climbing to taking an exclusive behind the scenes tour of a brewery, free CD loans from local libraries to discounted dining in city centre restaurants.
August 20 will also mark the 2nd birthday of the 08 Place – Liverpool’s one stop culture shop. The Whitechapel store opened its doors for the first time on 20/08 day in 2005.
It’s really easy for groups, businesses, or organisations to get involved in 20/08, they just need to visit www.liverpool08.com and complete the special 20/08 form. All offers will appear on the website and in a 20/08 day brochure, which is distributed to venues across the city.
The deadline for offers is Friday, July 22 2007.
