This is Green Liverpool’s launch event called ‘Down at the Bottom of the Garden’ is the first event of its kind launching on Saturday 21st August 2010 at The Bluecoat and Church Alley 11.00 – 17.00. Organised by a team of passionate volunteers it’s set to bring the streets alive with delights for all the family with music, art, drama, dance, crafts, food, drink and weird and wonderful acts from across Merseyside, whilst raising awareness of what’s green and going on in the city of Liverpool.
As well as entertainments and animations, there will also be a barbeque taking place and stalls with products and services available to buy to be greener at home, plus freebies and lots of information about what’s going on, where and why. The schedule of entertainments will be on www.thisisgreenliverpool.com
Ged Gibbons the Chief Executive of City Central BID quoted “I am delighted to support This is Green Liverpool’s message, as we are also enforcing it as part of the strategy at City Central BID. I personally will be heading down to the event with my family to take advantage of the fun and as it’s in the heart of the retail area I’m sure my wife will be pleased too!”
