It’s been ten years since Liverpool received its very deserving Capital of Culture Award and Bond Events Group are giving us a great way to celebrate every month for the rest of 2018.
The Bombed-Out Market: Culture Series happens on the last Sunday of every month and kicked off in March (after the success Bond Events contribution to the Chinese New Year celebrations in February at the same location.) As you may have guessed, the event takes place in the gorgeous setting of the Bombed-Out Church’s gardens, often hosting workshops, art installations and other exciting exhibitions simultaneously inside the church.
Each month focuses on a different area of the world through street food, workshops, music and performers, bringing us a different experience every time. Nevertheless, the team ensure local artists and performers of a variety of disciplines are programmed each month to provide a platform for the vast amount of talent we are so lucky to home here in Liverpool. Locally brewed ales, locally distilled gins and local brand coffees and teas are also available to enjoy from a gorgeous converted Horse Box bar.
The artisan market features an array of local makers’ creations from jewellery, clothing and artisan beauty products to home and giftware, art and food produce. The Bombed Out market founders have a real passion for small local businesses and supporting local creativity. Senior Project Manager Laura Cotter says ‘It’s so inspiring meeting all of the local makers and learning their stories,’ and Director Jay Ogugua commented ‘It makes us really happy to be able to host them and give them a place as beautiful and accessible as the Bombed Out Church to trade’.
The variety and originality of the North West’s creatives really are remarkable and you can find an up to 50 stall strong selection of them every last Sunday of the month at the completely free to enter Bombed Out Market (www.bombedoutmarket.co.uk).
