Spotlight on Livvy K

We were lucky enough to be joined by the multi talented, absolutely lovely Livvy K, when she joined us to record a live session in our library. Livvy K is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Lancashire, who's powerful vocal performance is was just what the doctor ordered after not seeing live music for a year.

She bounced in to the venue with so much energy and her live session is much more of the same.

5 places we can’t wait to see again…

With one foot back in normal life, it has been amazing to see so many venues adapt to outdoor service, bringing a slice of the Costa Del Sol to Liverpool. Castle Street and Bold Street resemble Las Ramblas in Barcelona as the restaurants and bars fill up the streets. However, we wanted to shine a light on a few places that like ourselves, haven't been able to open up yet. So, here are our 5 places we can't wait to see again...
