Cosplay Event at Fox and Goose, Southport. Are you going?

THIS is a quick reminder about the Southport Cosplay Community Event, that is to be held at the Fox and Goose, 8 Cable Street, Southport, Merseyside, PR9 0DF, from 8:30pm to 3am.  The event is in open to anyone aged 18 and above, but proof of age is required.  No functional or realistic weapons are allowed at the event.  On offer will be 2 amazing bands playing for your entertainment, Red Eyed Jedi and the So Green Band.  Entry price for the event is just £1 if you come in costume and just £2 if not in costume, paid on the door!

As many people who do Cosplay, for example the Facebook Group, Cosplay North West will tell you:- "Cosplay is not a contest of who can be the 'best' of a certain character. There's no Cosplay Police, so just do you and enjoy. It is all about having fun..."  Developing costumes might seem like just adults having fun, but it is in fact a major way people get into film and TV production, also  it helps with peoples socialising skills and problem solving abilities.  No only that, but it can make you money, should you make a fantastic costume...

If attending or thinking of attending, please let others know on Facebook, via visiting the event page.

Witness appeal after assault leaves young man in a critical condition


MERSEYSIDE Detectives investigating an incident in Mathew Street, Liverpool, on Sunday, 22 August 2015, left a young man in a critical condition have issued CCTV of several potential key witnesses. Officers want to speak to the 4 women and 2 men who were either customers at the Quarry Quarter or passing by at the time the 24 year old victim was found lying on the pavement outside the bar with a serious head injury. 2 men aged 54 and 26 have been arrested on suspicion of assault and questioned about the incident. They have since been released on Police Bail pending further enquiries. Several witnesses have already come forward but detectives are keen to hear from all of the people pictured as they may have information that could be important to the Police investigation. The victim is believed to have been involved in an argument with a man and woman while stood at the bar of the pub which resulted in all 3 being ejected separately from the premises. At 11.30pm, the Police were called after members of the public reported the 24 year old lying unconscious immediately outside the Quarry Quarter. He was taken to hospital by paramedics and later transferred to Walton Neurological Centre where he remains in a critical, but stable condition. Detectives from St. Anne Street CID have carried out extensive CCTV enquiries and are urging all the people pictured to come forward and speak to them, as well as anyone else who has information about how the victim came to be injured. Detective Inspector Sarah Kenwright said:- "A young man who was visiting Liverpool on a night out has suffered an extremely serious head injury and we need to gather all the information we can about what happened. 2 men have been arrested on suspicion of assault however our investigation is still on going and witnesses are still being sought. We are treating all the people in the CCTV stills as potential witnesses and they are not in any trouble. We simply need to know what they can tell us about the circumstances surrounding this young manís injuries. If you recognise yourself in the photographs, or you were in the Quarry Quarter last Sunday night and have something that could help us then please come forward. It is vital we do everything we can for this young man and bring any perpetrators to justice." Call St Anne Street CID on:- 0151 777 4065 or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111.
