Ed’s Place: What’s on

Ed’s Place, the pop-up space in the former George Henry Lee building supported by the University of Liverpool and local social enterprise, PLACED, has a number of events and activities planned which aim to bring people together to reimagine the city centre.

Ed’s Place runs until 23 September and the public can contribute to an exhibition about the city centre, submit their own ideas and suggestions for improving areas of the city and take part in a range of organised activities.

Forthcoming events:

  • Thursday 13 September, 3 – 5pm – Walking tour

A tour of the city centre, led by Ronni Hughes, which will explore the city’s breathing spaces – these are the places, sometimes public squares and sometimes just places in between others, where people can sit a while, breathe, reflect, watch people go by, check phones, talk to friends or maybe even eat the lunch we’ve brought with us. Starts 3pm, free to join.

  • Thursday 13 September, 5.30 – 8pm – Rotating debate
