Keynote speakers include leading political thinker Phillip Blond, renowned architect Will Alsop, New York-based editor of Vice magazine Andy Capper and design expert and commentator Stephen Bayley.

They will be joined by editor and author Paul Du Noyer – chronicler of Liverpool’s musical heritage – broadcaster Roger Hill, Liverpool Biennial Director Sally Tallant, retailer Lee Fleming and Sound City head Dave Pichilingi amongst many others for an exploration of the city’s economy, culture, radicalism and spirituality. 

The event, which runs from November 20-21 in a variety fo spaces within the Baltic district, has been conceived and co-ordinated by Liverpool creative agency Archetype in collaboration with journalist and broadcaster Liam Fogarty, with backing from Liverpool Vision, Baltic Creative and the Plus Dane housing group.

“We thought the time was right to ask some fundamental questions about where the city is heading and whether it still retains the capacity for radical thought and expression,” said Archetype Managing Director Jon Egan. “We believe we have brought together contributors who will have something lasting and thought-provoking to say about the city.”

Liam Fogarty added: “Liverpool X is in part a showcase for a city most Liverpudlians know little about, a city of creative risk-takers who are re-shaping the place we live in.”

The event will run through the night as well with a performance programme curated by Josh Burke of leading Liverpool promoters Waxxx. 
“We were excited to come on board when were saw the scope of the event. We felt it was a natural fit for us and something we’d like to be part of going forward. I was so happy to be able to bring some of Liverpool’s best promoters together for one night where we weren’t in competition, but working with one another. This has been a long time coming and hopefully give people the opportunity to sample lots of new music and new spaces in Baltic Triangle.”

As well as Waxxx, there will be contributions from Everisland,Getintothis and Behind the Wall of Sleep to an eclectic and exciting music programme. 
Registration for the event is available through the liverpoolx.com website.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
