Culture Vultures 25.02.21
On February 26 it’s National 'Tell a Fairy Story Day' - there’s a few I like including some updated tales written by artists at Fact in Liverpool with a slight twist to the story.
This weeks question for the chat : If you could change any fairy tale, what would it be?
It’s also Global 'Scouse day' on the 28th February, so an extra question for this week is:
How do you serve your scouse, do you have any family traditions or recipe additions?
Head over to the chat page and get involved on the brolly café .
