INDIVIDUALS from the worlds of film, music, art and education are set to be honoured by the City.

An extraordinary Council meeting will be taking place, at Liverpool Town Hall, on Wednesday, 9 November 2016, is considering a recommendation that the following people become Citizens of Honour:-

► Vasily Petrenko ? Under his leadership as Principal Conductor and Chief Conductor, the reputation of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and in turn Liverpool, has travelled across the world, wowing audiences wherever they travel.

► David Yates ? local award winning and highly acclaimed British filmmaker who has been instrumental in bringing huge productions such as 'Harry Potter' and the 'Deathly Hallows Part 1' and 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' to film in the City.

► James Barton ? Founder of Liverpool based super club Cream and has been regarded as 1 of the most influential people in the electronic dance scene.

► Tom Murphy ? a sculptor whose work can be seen across Liverpool including the iconic Bill Shankly memorial at Anfield, John Lennon located at John Lennon Airport, a tribute to the Blitz in the grounds of St Nicholas Church and Bessie Braddock and Ken Dodd at Liverpool Lime Street Station.

► Professor Michael Parkinson ? an adviser to the Vice Chancellor of the University of Liverpool and Executive Director of the Heseltine Institute he is a key ambassador for the City, lecturing nationally and internationally and is also an advisor on urban affairs to organisations, such as the European Commission.

In addition, a commitment has been made to recognise those individuals who supported and made a significant and distinctive contribution to the families of the 96 people who died at Hillsborough, during their 27 year fight for truth and justice. A list of names is currently being compiled with a view to bestowing the honour on them in the near future.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Roz Gladden, said:- "These individuals have, and continue to, make a real contribution to Liverpool life and I am delighted that they have been nominated to receive these civic honours. Becoming Citizen of Honour is very special and gives recognition to those who have made a positive difference to the City and to the lives of those that live here."

The Citizen of Honour Awards were introduced in 2008 to formally recognise those individuals who have made a significant, exceptional or unique contribution to enriching the image of the City and/or its citizens.

To date there are 27 Citizens of Honour including Bill Shankly, Liverpool World War Two veterans, April Ashley, Dr David France and Lewis Biggs.

Who do you think should be added to the Citizen of Honour Awards?  please email our newsroom via:- and let us know who and why.  Sadly we do not have a say, but we will forward suggestions on to Liverpool City Council should we get any....
