Come and join the Liverpool Twestival. A Twestival is a festival for tweeters (see what they’ve done there?) that’s people who use Twitter. Once a year Twitter users in a particular region or city get together to meet each other in person and to raise money for good causes.
It’s taking place on Thursday 10th September at Leaf Tea Shop and Bar, in the NOVAS CUC building (Elevator Studio entrance on Parliament Street). The doors open at 6pm, and everyone (including non-tweeters!) is welcome.
This year all proceeds will be going to Clatterbridge Cancer Research, and will be raised on the night by way of a super raffle. So far the prizes include:-

Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK. It was founded by Graham Holland in April 2008 as a central resource for the vibrant and exciting acoustic music scene in Liverpool and the Greater Merseyside area. The website publishes news from the local acoustic music scene, previews of upcoming events, reviews of music releases and gigs, and the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight podcast. This content is available for free via email subscription. The diary lists acoustic events including festivals, theatre concerts, folk clubs, showcases and open mic nights.
