What's Happening Liverpool
Some of the latest opportunities from Liverpool's wellbeing and creative communities
Littlewoods Film & Food Fest is coming to Liverpool on Sat 15th July!
We're Capital&Centric, the custodians of the iconic Littlewoods building on Edge Lane, which we're in the process of transforming into film & tv studios. We’re starting as we mean to go on, and opening up the nearby The Depot film studio for an exclusive one-dayer, giving you a chance to see behind the scenes of Liverpool's film industry.
Along with screenings, there'll be games, eats, beats, drinks and a few special surprises.
Tickets are £5 and include popcorn. Every penny from ticket sales will go to Unity Youth and Community Centre, a local charity helping support young people in Toxteth.
Seating is allocated first come, first served, so get down early to grab some food, a drink (or two), play some games and nab a seat.
