Interfaith week in Liverpool

Interfaith week is upon us again, with it beginning at the start of this week, Monday 13th November and we are how half way through. Reading the previous articles, events and posts on the Guild’s website, it has survived the test of time as being one of the most important weeks in the academic calendar. Living in Liverpool can be an experience, that is guaranteed, especially for those of us who have grown up elsewhere. Being declared the ‘European City of Culture’ in 2008 was certainly deserved, as it continues to maintain its multicultural diversity. Although there is a...

The artist’s world

From the artists perspective, is a viewpoint that is rarely explored. Reviews are done, but what about what the artist sees and feels? At the start of October, I was lucky enough to play a set at Kelly’s Dispensary, a bar on Smithdown Road.

It is their job to ensure the safety and confidence of all students at the University of Liverpool, and this year, they are more determined than ever to be of service.  Offering a phone call for reassurance, advice, or even a chaperoning service, this team is definitely one to have in your contacts...

Veganism “restrictive”? This fair proves otherwise…

Veganism is a lifestyle choice that is growing in popularity, day by day. With an increase of 360% over the past decade, according to a survey carried out by The Telegraph, could it be that the stereotypes are finally being overlooked? Although this research clearly shows the amazing increase in acceptance and the embracing of an alternative natural way of life throughout the UK, smaller towns are still very reluctant to embrace the change in lifestyle. Prejudices are still so common; rarely a day goes by without someone asking “What, so you just eat lettuce?”. It isn’t the case, (just...
