Next summer, from 6 – 8 August at the Pier Head, the city is set to welcome a brand new festival: Liverpool Loves, celebrating our brilliant cultural scene amongst the many other things we love about our city.

In 2015, the first edition of the proposed annual 3 -day festival, the focus falls on four main areas – Liverpool Loves Culture; Liverpool Loves Business; Liverpool Loves Food; Liverpool Loves Well Being. The vision for the festival is to support and encourage Liverpool independents who can sometimes be overlooked within the city landscape, and the organisers hope to use local exhibitors, suppliers, produce and staff wherever possible.

Although much of the festival will focus on growing new businesses and promoting networking opportunities across the city for these groups, the creative sectors of Liverpool will also play an important role, entertaining festival-goers with showcase exhibitions, live performances and demonstrations throughout the weekend.

Liverpool Loves wants to hear from small business, producers, suppliers and performers who would like to get involved. Email your details to LiverpoolLoves@orb-events.co.uk
