Keen to hear about the best art, design, film and music events happening in Liverpool July-Sept 2015?
Wait no more! Download the PDF version of our indispensable new pocket-guide, Culture Diary, now.
In Issue 3, you’ll find our selection of the best summer and autumn festivals — like Liverpool Psych Fest, Above The Beaten Track and LIMF — plus live music from the likes of The Icicle Works, Mark Lanegan (O2 Academy), Cuz (East Village Arts Club) and Arthur Russell’s Instrumentals (The Kazimier).
Check out new exhibitions and commissions, from Anne Harlid’s courtyard sculpture at The Bluecoat, to FACT’s exploration of amnesia through Lesions In The Landscape.
Cineastes can watch classic horror (Videodrome) and martial arts (Enter The Dragon) at A Small Cinema or offbeat drama (Mystery Train) at Metal.
If that isn’t enough, Liverpool plays host to a series of special events this quarter, including artists and scientists working in the field of visual perception and psychoacoustics (8 Water Street/Camp And Furnace)!
Look out for our printed version: working with graduates in graphic design, Matthew Buckton, and illustration, Sam Garroch, and specialist arts paper company G. F Smith, we’ve come up with a simple, high-quality, fold-out guide to Liverpool that will grace any pocket, desk space or fridge door. Printed quarterly to make sure we pick the best, most up-to-date events, and covering our favourite cinemas, clubs, galleries, festivals, studios and theatres, it’s the perfect reference to the city for you and your friends.
Distributed at carefully selected arts and culture venues, you can pick up one of 40,000 free Culture Diaries this year around Liverpool, Sefton, Wirral, Chester, St Helens, Manchester, Preston, Leeds, Glasgow, Sheffield, London and Bristol. Look out for Issue 3 now; Issue 4 will hit venues Oct-Dec 2015.
All that’s left to say is: pick one up, stick it on the fridge, on your desk, or keep it in your pocket for emergencies. Draw on it, stick post-its on it, or send it to a long-lost friend and arrange a night out together. We hope you enjoy Culture Diary as much as we enjoyed making it!
