‘The Voice’ star at Liverpool Central Library 27 Sept


LIVERPOOL’S Central Library will once again play centre stage for some live music acts later this month.

On Saturday 27 September the award-winning programme of live gigs in libraries – Get It Loud in Libraries – will be returning in style with a one-off gig from Becky Hill, who has appeared on BBC’s ‘The Voice’.

The event follows on from the success of chart star Nick Mulvey, who played a sold out gig at the Library earlier this year.

Becky Hill reached the top of the Official Charts recently with Oliver Helden’s song Gecko and appeared on BBC’s ‘The Voice’. Now a solo artist Becky is winning fans across the UK with her debut single ‘Caution To The Wind’.

The Liverpool Central Library show , where she will be supported by Shannon Saunders, is a chance to see her in an intimate venue.

Liverpool City Council’s Assistant Mayor and cabinet member for culture and tourism, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “The Get it Loud in Libraries event held in March this year was a sell out and a huge success.

“It is fantastic to see our venues being used for some great and unusual events and performances.

“Liverpool has a long and successful musical history so our venues are ideal platforms for new musicians wanting to showcase their talents.

The Get it Loud in Libraries (GiLiL) programme has already shown a great instinct for booking stars of the future with household names like Adele, Jessie J and Katy B playing intimate gigs for audiences of all ages at the beginning of their careers. It is hoped the show continues this tradition for breaking future stars in our nation’s libraries.

GILIL also offers exclusive creative opportunities for young people to get involved and develop their skills in film, photography, web design and event management on the live shows.

Tickets for Becky Hill are on sale now on a strictly limited basis at www.seetickets.com at £8 each.

Doors are 8.00pm and the shows are all ages.

Fans often visit the library from all over the country and from abroad to experience a gig in a library with their favourite acts and so Loud in Libraries supports local cultural tourism as well as everything else.
