A jam-packed programme of cultural events will illuminate this city on the night, but I hope to illuminate my stomach first at the…. mouth watering-mix of culinary delights on offer in the restaurants, bars, hotels, and coffee shops from the Commercial District BID, hosting their Food and Drink Festival at Exchange Flags Square.
This will be my first stop to replenish the parts…..after a busy week, then there will be entertainment by RARE Studio and choirs singng from the balcony of the Town Hall to serenade all the connoisseurs of good food.
After last years LightNight travels, I’ve found that to reap the delights of the night, you need to be well planned and well timed in the events to enjoy it to the full.
The Black-E, Great George Street hosts carnival time with the fun loving Movema, Airborn and Brazuka, bringing you Brazilian samba drumming, acrobatic tricks and dance moves from around the world.
I might even throw in a ‘memory’ at the Transition of a Memory Workshop, if I remember.
A quick trip to the Candle-Lit-Labyrinth at the Anglican Cathedral will be relaxing before the next hike.
Next, a trek down Seel Street, through China Town and on to meet ‘Bookworm’ at Art House Square (near Fact) then into Fact for a glass of wine and a quick chill and another exhibition.
After a breather there, onto Wolstenholm Creative Space for ‘Drop the Dumbells’ then to The Bluecoat to enjoy all the free art offerings for the girls to upskill on.
Finally, we will end the night as always with an exotic coffee at Lunya and some Catalan fusion deli, washed down with a Spanish cava and a late night brandy with excellent conversation about the nights offering.
We always meet old friends and end up networking on these nights so if you are around….follow us on this night of adventure and ‘Do something different on a Friday night’
Just returned from a week of intensive outdoor pursuits, canoeing, kayaking, climbing, rock scrambling, orienteering, caving, beach partying and all things wild and exciting in the mountains and hills of the beautiful landscape of Lake Coniston in the Lake District.
One afternoon was spent exploring the canyons and caves of Slaters Quarry, where they filmed Snow White and the Huntsman……all of us togged up with lighted candles… as we walked in semi-darkness holding onto each-other along dark, dark winding passages until we extinguished the light and then…… Dramatic stuff that fills your wellies with terror. All this was at the Low Bank Ground Outward Bound Centre, Coniston….well worth a cheap weekend visit!!!
Anyway, now I’m back, Rehab at the Camp and Furnace is launching it’s new party with music from inimitable guests.
This is a new underground night coming to Liverpool with some of the best DJ’s from around the world.
Phil Week’s DJ/producer to name one. Phil is a house music purist mixing old Chicago with a nu-school French flame going from the deepest house to the techiest, even with his vinyls.
Full bar and facilities will make this a night to remember, so join Phil and friends David Glass and Infinite Soul for a memorable evening of hot, pulse beating dance, and music making fun on Saturday 28th April from 9pm-late at Camp and Furnace, Greenland Street.
Wow!……Look what’s on its way this weekend…A festive day of arts and crafts with lashings of entertainment at Camp and Furnace this Good Friday.
‘The wood will yet again be heaped on the fire so get down there, get cozy and soak up the Easter atmosphere.
The Furnace will be transformed into a FREE arts and crafts fair showcase yet again.
This popular fair is back again by popular demand and it’s not surprising as the fair emerged as a result of a rising number of people visiting the Baltic triangle area seeking a creative, alternative and independent city centre shopping experience in a ‘relaxed and cultural community’.This is exactly what you will get this weekend.
The Good Friday event will host a specially designed Easter themed craft workshop for adults and children.
There will be limited edition prints, handcrafted carpentry, retro and contempoary homeware, vintage, photography, hand made ceramics, knitted crafts, up-cycled and re-cycled jewellery, stationary, gifts and lots, lots more all embraced by the Threshold Festival compare management. They will curate a selection of live acustic music with bands playing throughout the day.
Bring your friends and family and enjoy a relaxing wholesome day out at the Camp and Furnace, with food and drink courtesy of the Furnace bar and kitchen at this, ‘our cities own creative hub’.
