Wed, August 13th, 2014

Exchange Flags is to undergo a magical makeover for a week long event.

One of the most stunning squares in the UK is set for a radical revamp this August.

Exchange Flags, at the rear of Liverpool Town Hall and situated in the heart of the city’s Commercial District and World Heritage site, is to undergo a magical makeover for a major city centre event.

Hosted by the Commercial District BID and managed by SK Events & PR, the festival will run from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd August, 12pm-7pm.

Designed with an edgy European twist, the festival will include producers’ stalls, vintage clothes markets, local restaurants and bars, antiques stores, flower stalls and a whole host of other unique sellers.

Laid back entertainment will be provided by The Cavern as part of Beatles’ Week and the Convention at the Town Hall on Friday.

There will also be cooking demonstrations and master classes from some of the city’s most talented chefs, as well as entertainment from local artists, stilt walkers and street theatre performers.

Local businesses will also be able to utilise this amazing space for outdoor meetings and networking events.

Tracey Crosbie, Events Manager at Liverpool BID Company, said: “ThIs Summer is going to be a fabulous weeklong party showcasing the very best of that Commercial District has to offer.

“It’s going to be great opportunity for businesses to participate in or to just come and visit with colleagues and network – all set within an amazing backdrop.’’

Denise Harris, director of SK Events & PR, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Commercial District BID on this exciting event, which will certainly put Exchange Flags on the map as a place to visit this summer.

“Exchange Flags is a beautiful space and a perfect setting for a Portobello Road themed market. We are looking forward to bringing a real buzz to this part of town.”
