Announcing the next showing of “Without These Walls” at The Black-E in Liverpool at 10am on Monday 26th September.
After three showings so far around Liverpool and one last week in Slovakia “Without These Walls” and its accompanying “Ghost Mural” will be screened on Monday 26th September, 10am at The Black-E as part of “The World Transformed” event running alongside the Labour Party Conference in Liverpool. As well as the films there will be a follow up discussion about how an apparently well meaning Labour Party supported public policy ended up devastating whole places and communities. Continue reading
Early afternoon of a sunny September Saturday Sarah and I decide to go somewhere interesting for the afternoon. Obviously the Food and Drink Debacle in Sefton Park is out of the question, so we opt for somewhere nearby, free to enter and thereby non-exclusive.
The Artisans Network, last seen at Calderstones Park last Sunday are here and I’m glad to see them. Principally though we’re here to enjoy the place on a peaceful afternoon. Continue reading
Last week Sarah told us all about her visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Now, in her second blog post about going to Poland we hear how important it was to her to travel there and back relatively slowly by train.

And so train it was, well quite a lot of trains in fact.
And an awfully big part of the adventure is ‘The night train’. Continue reading
I haven’t walked along here much this year, having spent most of my time in North and Central Liverpool.
Often to be found in Sefton Park or Croxteth Hall (where they’ll be next weekend) , this is the Artisan Network’s first go at putting on what they do in Calderstones.
In a public park and therefore free to enter. As it should be. Continue reading
When Liverpool’s last tram paraded along Lord Street for the last time in 1957 I was there, crying. I loved the trams and was broken hearted to see them leaving so early in my life, as I was only 3. Ever since, I’ve missed them and lamented their absence. And I suppose I’d assumed most of the tram lines had been dug up by now. But not so, as a walk along Penny Lane at the weekend showed me.
The Smithdown end of Penny Lane is closed at the moment as the Ullet and Smithdown roadworks proceed slowly along to wherever they’re going to stop.
