Assistant Mayor and cabinet member for culture and tourism, Councillor Wendy
Simon, said:- "Get it Loud in Libraries is a chance to see music being
performed in a location where you wouldn't normally expect to see it. It
is fantastic to see our venues being used for some great and unusual events and
performances. Liverpool has a long and successful musical history so our venues
are ideal platforms for new musicians wanting to showcase their talents."
Recent performances at Central Library as part of Get it Loud in Libraries have
included Grammy award nominated alternative rock band Wolf Alice and folk
songwriter Frank Turner.
The shows increase access for new users, strengthen the cultural capaCity of the
library and allow young people to develop new digital skills working with the
artists on stage. Digital skills and media training workshops will be held for
young people between the ages 14 and 25 before each gig.
