Cream founder honoured by City

THE super club turned global events company Cream and its founder are being honoured by the City of Liverpool.

Cream was formed in Liverpool 25 years ago and now 1 of the globe's leading event promoters, part of Live Nation Entertainment; is being awarded the Freedom of Liverpool in recognition of its outstanding contribution to the music and event industry, showcasing Liverpool to millions worldwide.

Founded in 1992, Cream defined itself as one of the world's most instantly recognisable youth brands and became a global leader in the electronic music market. Now part of Live Nation Entertainment, the brand is one of the world's leading music event promoters.

And the man behind the concept; James Barton; regarded as one of the most influential people in the electronic dance scene, is being made a Citizen of Honour to recognise his significant and unique contribution to the City.

The presentation is taking place during preparations for one of the organisation's major events in the City, Cream Classical Live @ Liverpool Cathedral this coming Friday night.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Roz Gladden, said:- "I am delighted to be able to present these 2 civic honours to Cream and James Barton. His work to establish the nightclub put Liverpool on the global map for dance music and significantly enhanced the City's cultural credentials in the 1990s, helping drive the City's night time economy, our international profile and assisting in paving the way for Capital of Culture. The organisation continues to play a huge role in the cultural life of the City, through events such as Cream Classical, and it is right and proper that the City pays tribute to its past, present and future commitment to our City."

James Barton said:- "This is a huge honour for me and for Cream, what started off as a small club night back in October 1992, we could never have dreamt the journey it would take us on and what a journeys it's been. We've staged events across the globe many times over the last 25 years and it excites me still to this day when I meet fans of Cream in a far flung place and they talk fondly of 'that club in Liverpool'. We are proud in the role that Cream played in the rebirth of the City during the 90's. There is no better City in the world and we're proud to call this our home, thank you Liverpool."

The Freedom of Liverpool is Liverpool's highest civic honour and is awarded to organisations and individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to life in the City. Citizen of Honour Awards were introduced in 2008 to formally recognise those individuals who have enriched the image of the City and / or its citizens.
