We are delighted to be a partner of a fantastic new festival launching this August; Liverpool Loves is coming to the Pier Head, and The Women’s Organisation is involved!
‘Liverpool Loves has been created to celebrate the very best of our cultural heritage, amazing food and drink, fantastic feel-good organisations and the dynamic local business community.’
‘We are positively challenging some of the issues around keeping business within the city, bringing big players and little players to work towards a better future.’
Pulled together and curated by the CIC arm of Orb Events, and Managing Director Josh Boyd, Liverpool Loves is going to be an amazing weekend of Business, Culture, Wellbeing and Food all happening down at their purpose built BIG Big Top on Pier Head.
Of course, when we first found out about Liverpool Loves, we couldn’t wait to get involved, and now as a partner we have got the chance to share some of our fantastic Women’s Org ways with the rest of the Liverpool Loves festival.
As the days and hours count down to the launch, we’ve got these days in our diary and have put together some top picks from Liverpool Loves that are not to be missed!
First up is the day that is marked in red ink in our diaries. We can’t wait for the Liverpool Loves Business day happening on August 6th in the Big Top on Pier Head.
‘Our city region has one of the best independent sectors in the UK with 99.6% of all companies being SME’s. Liverpool Loves Business puts people at the heart of the event and gives you the opportunity to connect with other business minded folk, and explore the fantastic opportunities here at home and work towards a stronger future, together.’
Along with a whole host of other SME’s, The Women’s Organisation will be joining in all the fun of the day. We are hosting our own networking session; Let’s Connect on August 6th from 13:30-15:30 and we hope to see you there!
Let’s Connect is our networking concept event that will focus on making those valuable introductions between connectors, funders, professionals and anyone that wants to get involved! Delegates will be colour coded, so it’s not about who you are or who you work for, but all about who you want to connect with.
As well as this our CEO Maggie O’Carroll will be thoroughly involved in the day and is hosting a talk on being Pioneering in Business
Join Maggie for ‘The Four P’s: Pioneering in Business’ as she hosts what is sure to be an interesting conversation at 15:15to 15:45
And Maggie will be taking to the stage again for a Panel Session on ‘Growth’ at 16:15-17:15 alongside Rosie Jolly, CEO of SEN Together, Jenny Steward, COO of Liverpool and Sefton Chamber of Commerce and hosted by Frank McKenna, Executive Director of Downtown in Business
And it’s not just business on the cards for Liverpool Loves. As well as Liverpool Loves Business, the festival with focus on Culture, Food and Wellbeing
As part of Liverpool Loves Culture, Liverpool Loves will be holding a full evening of Irish
festivities at Liverpool Loves Ireland. On Friday 7th August there will be a full line-up of traditional Irish entertainment from 7pm onwards.
Check out Liverpool’s Irish artists including Cream of the Barley. Ireland’s incredible Eleanor McEvoy and enjoy traditional Irish food and drinks in the bespoke Big Top!

And to soak up what may be a long night on the Friday, the Saturday is for eating! All day Saturday, a fantastic array of our local independents will be on site. As well as eating, there will be workshops with recipes, healthy eating advice and family fun all day.
Alongside this, you can head over and explore more of Liverpool Loves Wellbeing. Liverpool Loves have said;
‘Liverpool Loves feeling great.
