Thanks to all who came along to the Midsummer Dreams event on Thursday and helped to make the day such a success, I’d also like to welcome those who registered with us on the day – welcome!
We hope everyone who joined us for the film at the Philharmonic Hall enjoyed it as much as we did. It was great to see you all and meet some of you for the first time. Unfortunately there seemed to have been a mix up regarding the complimentary drink so apols to those who didn’t get one.
Well, it’s festival season (Comedy, Brouhaha, Glastonbury, Prescot, Woolton, Mathew Street…) which has made it even tougher to decide what to do next, so we’ve decided to go with something we’ve never done before – poetry! Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival is the only dedicated UK Arabic Arts festival and starts this weekend. Our next event is an evening of Palestinian poetry on Monday 2nd July at 7pm in the Everyman Bistro’s third room. This is a free event so there’s no need to book and we’re hoping to get a chance to have a chat with some of the poets afterwards, more details below or on the website (www.culturepool.org.uk)
As always, let us know if you’d like to be taken off the mailing list.
