Exciting news! 67-17: 50 Summers of Love has been announced. The programme marks the summer of 1967, and the subsequent summers, which were landmarks in modern culture. Liverpool played a central role in the outpouring of creativity in 1967, as the year saw the release of The Beatles album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the publication of one of the world’s most popular poetry anthologies The Mersey Sound and the opening of the Metropolitan Cathedral – all of which will form part of some of the activities taking place.
The programme features a strong line up of cultural events with strong COoL representation from Liverpool Arab Arts Festival, The Atkinson, Milapfest, Africa Oyé (Official), The Comedy Trust and Open Eye Gallery.
This demonstrates the important contribution COoL members make to Liverpool City Region through quality cultural work nationally and internationally. As Major Joe Anderson says, “It’s not only the quantity of events – the quality is outstanding.” We can’t wait.
