Principles met

  • We will develop systems that enable citizens to be equal partners in designing and commissioning public services and in determining the use of public resources.
  • We will embrace innovation in how we work with local communities to drive positive change.

Coinciding with the opening of the unique Shakespeare North Playhouse, Knowsley is Liverpool City Region’s Borough of Culture in 2022 – a year-long celebration of culture and creativity through community activities and events which forms a key part of the Borough’s plans for recovery from the pandemic.

The programme is encouraging collaboration and engagement across Knowsley’s local communities – through cultural activities and events which will continue to have a positive impact in the future.  This wide-ranging cultural events and activities programme (and, importantly, its continuing legacy) will be key to helping local communities thrive as part of the Council’s ongoing COVID-19 recovery work.

The theme for the year is “Stories of people, places and magic”, co-designed with local communities through dedicated “cultural conversations” and pop-up events across the Borough – demonstrating Knowsley’s Better Together approach in action and giving everyone an opportunity to get involved and feel connected to the celebrations in different ways.
