In the news
This research forms part of a broader commemoration of the 10 year anniversary of Liverpool 2008, with the city having already announced its intention to mark 2018 with a major programme of arts and cultural activity that will build on and celebrate the legacy of Liverpool 2008.
Dubbed Eighteen for 18, this programme of works will centre on a series of 18 internationally significant events, exhibitions, seasons and performances which, in the words of the city council, ‘will shine a light on the importance of culture within the ongoing renaissance of the city, and how it will play a key role in the blueprint for the success of the Liverpool City Region moving forward.’
Although the full 2018 programme will not be announced until autumn, the mooted return of the Royal de Luxe Giants, in particular, has already piqued the interest of the press, as the following selection of press highlights shows.
- Liverpool Echo (2016) ‘The Giants are set to return to Liverpool!‘ 26 May.
