2017 has been an incredible year for the art scene in Liverpool; from the Liver Bird wings by Paul Curtis to the dynamic Pier Head Art Fair, the city has been showered in talent.
One of our personal highlights of this year has been celebrating our talented local artists through our Crafted In Liverpool competition (read more about it here!) and in light of this we thought we should share our top 5 gift ideas for your artistic friends and family that can all be bought from local, independent businesses!
Christmas is here, whether you like it or not! So what goes hand in hand with Christmas? A Christmas night out! If it is with your work mates, your local sports club, family or friends we have something for everyone to enjoy whilst your supporting local, independent businesses.
Looking for somewhere to host that last minute office Christmas party this year? We're pretty sure that all local business owners would be thrilled to have you, making those pounds spread further in our local economy.
£140 Million. That’s how much Liverpool as a city is estimated to spend over the holiday period on festivities. From food to gifts and of course the office Christmas party, £140 million is undoubtedly a hefty price-tag. To put some perspective on an almost unimaginable figure, Christmas spending in Liverpool equates to the salaries of approximately 6000 nurses or 4500 teachers for one year!
Following on from 'Our Moment with Candice Fonseca' last week, Colu are continuing our #StoriesToSupportChallenge as we look to inspire a joined up and prosperous local economy in Liverpool. Each week we will be visiting one of our businesses to experience them for ourselves, let you know more about them, hear their plans for the future and listen to the trials they face as local businesses.
