Organising an event
Liverpool has a long history of hosting world-class events on the international stage, welcoming over 15 million attendees at cultural events and attractions in one year alone.
Some of the UK’s top events have been hosted in Liverpool including the Turner Prize, MOBO’s, MTV Music Awards, BBC Sports Personality of the Year, BBC Showcase Exhibition, the Clipper Round the World race and the 2014 Tour of Britain Grand Depart & Sky Ride to name a few.
Here at Culture Liverpool we have a dedicated events team that take responsibility and undertake all aspects of the planning and implementation of large scale outdoor events across a variety of environments including heritage sites, parkland, maritime and urban areas.
