LIVERPOOL TOGETHER: City commemorates one year of lockdown
Plans are being put in place for Liverpool to mark one of the most unforgettable years in history.
On Tuesday 23 March, the city will stage an emotive event – Liverpool Together – exactly one year on since the start of the first lockdown in England. Liverpool City Council's award winning Culture Liverpool team is curating the event .
Liverpool Together is a day long event reflecting on the last year – as well as looking to the future – celebrating the resilience and solidarity of the city.
Streamed and broadcast online, poetry, readings, films and first-person accounts will reflect on those who lost their lives to Covid-19, highlight the challenges faced by every community during the pandemic and shine a light on the incredible spirit people have shown in dealing with this unprecedented adversity.
Everyone has been impacted by the pandemic in one way or another. March 23 is a milestone and the council say they want to host an event which recognises just how hard life has been over the past 12 months, whilst also highlighting some of the incredible things which people from across our city have done.
