Phil Redmond said, “This is one of those really special legacy events from what we started in ’08. It brings together a mass of creativity from across the region into one of Liverpool’s most remarkable venues. It’s a good thing for the city, and a move away from the same old things you find on the high street”
Christina Grogan Event Organiser said, “For 2010 a new addition to the event will be the Feel Good Fair which aims to get people smiling and inspire them with new ways to feel good – especially useful if your mood turns with the change of the seasons! Of course I’ll be doing some Christmas shopping at the Winter Arts Market because I had so many happy friends and family from all the treasures I found for them last time’
