Poppies: Weeping Window at St Georges Hall

Architecture 19 Nov 15

The Weeping Window is a small scale version of the Poppies that were featured at the Tower of London earlier this year. While it’s on a smaller scale it’s still incredibly beautiful and moving, especially at dusk. The way the colour of the poppies compliments and also contrasts with the stone of St Georges Hall. It’s stunning.

The display is on untilĀ 17 January, 2016.

LIMF 2015 Day 1

Events, Gigs 28 Aug 15

The Liverpool International Music Festival, LIMF, is warming up for August Bank Holiday. Last night saw the first major event in the shape of a tribute to Gil Scott-Heron with Aswad, the Christians, Sophia Ben-Yousef, Talib Kweli and the brilliant Craig Charles. I do love that we have these epic spaces for music events in the city.

The festival is huge with events on all the way through to Monday night. I’m covering a lot of it along with Mark McNulty so stay tuned to our sites for coverage over the weekend.

The Giants return to Liverpool

Events, Liverpool 23 Jul 14

They’re back! The Giants have returned to Liverpool. The Giants first came to Liverpool back in 2012 and it was the highlight of my career. Easily the most incredible event I’ve ever witnessed and photographed. Giants roaming the streets of not only the city centre but also North Liverpool. I loved that it was outside the city centre. The sight of people opening their doors and seeing a 60ft giant walk past was nothing short of amazing. Imagine being able to tell your kids about that!
