Have you heard about the Liverpool Loves festival coming to the city this August?
Providing a platform to celebrate, participate and create everything people are so passionate about across the city, the free event will take place 6 – 8 August on the Pier Head, supporting new business with any profits raised. The Thursday and Friday will be focused on business, whilst the Saturday is billed as a festival day, when the creative and lifestyle sectors of Liverpool will entertain the public with showcase exhibitions, live performances and demonstrations – and that’s the bit we’re excited about!
So we sent photographer Ryan Gerry down to Liverpool Loves’ Valentines event this week, where 100 eco-friendly and bio-degradeable balloons carrying declarations of love for the city were released by volunteers ahead of the festival later this year.
