We’re slowly working our way through the Liverpool Acoustic diary, checking (as far as we can) to see if events are still running. If we email an organiser and don’t get a reply after two weeks then we’ll assume it’s no longer taking place and will remove the event from the diary. We can’t say fairer than that, can we?
As ever, if you know of any entries that are out of date, drop us a line using the ‘Contact‘ page. And if you have anything to add to the diary, just visit the ‘Diary‘ page and click the ‘Add Event’ button.
OK, are you paying attention for the next two new events? Good.
Here’s a selection of some of the acoustic events taking place this month. Click on the event in the diary for full details and links.
Thanks to those of you who’ve been helping us identify events in the diary that are no longer taking place. We appreciate your help in keeping the contents accurate as we don’t want people to turn up to events that are no longer taking place. If you can help with information, please use the contact form and we’ll get back to you.
