Words by Natasha Young
Artisan event to bring locally made treats
Foodies will be in for a treat this August when The Artisans Market heads to St George’s Hall.
Deep filled pies, sweet and savoury pastries, jams, chutneys, fudge and cheeses are among the locally produced delights expected to be on offer during the 11-13 August event.
A night market on St George’s Plateau will also feature live music, street food and a licensed bar on the first evening of the event, which forms part of the city’s Summer of Love celebrations.
There’ll also be other makers, creative workshops and ‘flower power’ face painting artists on hand at the landmark building.
Spanish bar to stage ‘Carmen’
A stage production of ‘Carmen’ will take place at Liverpool’s Alhambra bar (pictured) next month, as the venue plans to introduce a rolling calendar of events.
Limited tickets are available for the 23 June performance by the Alandalus Dance Company, which will take place in the courtyard of the Spanish food and drink venue in Cains Brewery Village.
Paul and Paula Rimmer, who recently launched Alhambra, are also hosting regular flamenco dancing and acoustic nights and are planning ‘language exchange’ sessions for customers to learn Spanish by chatting to Spanish students and nationals who, in turn, can brush up on their English.
Café plan for Bold Street retailer
Clothing store Resurrection is looking to incorporate a café on its first floor.
According to plans put forward to Liverpool City Council, the “small area” of the shop would serve teas, coffees, organic juices and already prepared food such as sandwiches, soups and cakes to customers
