HOTLY tipped young
musician, Nick Mulvey will be playing a special gig in Liverpool
next month. On Sunday, 9 March 2014, Nick Mulvey will play the only
library venue as part of his official tour.
In collaboration with the hugely successful Get it Loud in Libraries
(GiLiL) initiative, Nick will bring Liverpool's Central library to
life with his unique latin and folk sound.

tipped to end up in the top five, Nick will be performing a number
of songs including his new single Cucurucu which will be released on
3 March 2014, and will be followed by his debut album due later in Spring.
Liverpool City Council's Assistant Mayor and cabinet member for
culture and tourism, Councillor Wendy Simon, said:- "The
launch of the Get it Loud in Libraries in November was a great
success and really opened up the idea of doing something more in our
It is great to see Central Library being used for such diverse
events that inspire and engage young people.
It is fitting that Liverpool, a City synonymous with music, is
giving new musicians a platform to showcase their talents. I
hope this will encourage young and old to come along to the Library
and enjoy the music we have on offer, this is for one night only and
is definitely not to be missed."
The GiLiL project connects young people with libraries with no bars
and or accompanying license restrictions it allows all ages a chance
to see great bands playing live in a real gig environment at an age
where they would normally be restricted to big-venue pop concerts
and the occasional festival. It creates audiences for libraries and
exposes more people to public libraries generally.
Fans often visit the library from all over the country and from
abroad to experience a gig in a library with their favourite acts
and so Loud in Libraries supports local cultural tourism as well as
Events are delivered as part of a programme of developing youth
audiences and future live activity will encourage young people to
develop their creative and music industry skills in a supportive
mentoring environment whilst also exposing them to the most exciting
new music talent. The programme stages intimate gigs in public
libraries all across the North West.

Road traffic collision on
Cambridge Road, Southport, kills 86 year old
A road traffic collision in Southport, on
Sunday, 23 February 2014, has claimed the life of a local man, Mr.
Bulteel, known as "Tony", who was aged 66. Officers
from Merseyside Police's MSOC Collision Investigation Team, are
continuing to investigate the full circumstances surrounding the
incident. Sergeant Jason Higham said that:- "We still need to
speak to people who witnessed the collision, which happened at
around 4.50pm on Cambridge Road. In particular, we believe a car,
which was behind the black Kia Picanto just before it collided with
the lamppost, stopped at the scene. A woman who was driving the car
is thought to have got out and spoken to people, but she left the
area before officers arrived. This woman may have vital information
about the collision which could help with our investigation and I
would appeal to her to get in touch with us. I would also urge
anyone else with information about the incident to pick up the phone
and speak to one of our officers." Anyone with information
can call the Matrix Serious Organised Crime Roads Policing Unit on:-

Sutch a giant
job for local firm
LIVERPOOL'S giant summer
extravaganza has attracted an 'uplifting' local sponsor.
John Sutch Cranes has become an official partner in Memories of
August 1914, which will see the Little Girl Giant and her pet Xolo
return as part of the UK's flagship cultural event marking the
centenary of the outbreak of World War One.
The crane company were massively proud of the central role they
played in 2012's giant spectacular Sea Odyssey when their cranes
manoeuvred the giants around the City. They have come on-board again
in a project which will highlight their technical expertise in an
original way once more.
Liverpool born John Sutch who owns the organisation, said:-
"We know from our involvement in 2012 that a successful performance
relies on meticulous planning, communication and scheduling, backed
up by a lot of imagination.
Our modern fleet of cranes with their technological advancements and
the highly skilled operatives means we can achieve everything the
creative directors at Royal De Luxe ask for, and with our impeccable
health and safety record, it makes us a valuable event partner."
At this stage of discussions, plans are in place to use around 7
cranes, up to 12 operatives and 2 project managers. Many of the
drivers were involved in 2012 so understand the scale of July's
John added:- "We are honoured to be part of the national
commemorations of the start of the Great War, and with our growing
regional and national presence, it is fitting that it marks the
finale of the International Festival for Business.
It's going to be fantastic to be at the heart of this hugely
important event which will bring national and international
attention to our City."
Assistant Mayor and cabinet member for culture and tourism,
Councillor Wendy Simon, said:- "Since we announced our giant
spectacular last month we've been inundated with requests from
businesses, community groups and individuals who want to be part of
this historic event in some way.
We're delighted with the response and it's wonderful to be able to
work with local organisations in bringing this event to the streets
John Sutch Cranes have a real can-do attitude which is exactly what
we need when faced with the ambitiously creative demands of Royal De
Luxe! They were an integral part of the success in 2012 as having
these technical experts on-board means we can fulfil the scope of
the project and wow people once again with the movements of our
giant special guests. We hope this is the first of many
partnerships we announce as we work towards creating one of the most
unforgettable, moving and awe-inspiring street theatre events to
take place in the UK this year."
