LIVERPOOL 4 In 2008 Liverpool was given the title Capital of Culture. As with other large cities, Liverpool is an important cultural centre within the United Kingdom, incorporating music, performing arts, museums and art galleries, literature and nightlife amongst others. In 2008, the cultural heritage of the city was celebrated

with the city holding the title of European Capital of Culture, during which time a wide range of cultural celebrations took place in the city. LIVERPOOL 5 Why do we think Liverpool wanted to rebrand itself as the a City of Culture?

Why Liverpool? 6 Toxteth Riots 1981 Why Liverpool? 7 Yosser Hughes had the catchphrases,

"gissa' job!" and "I can do that!" which became part of the popular consciousness of the eighties, summing up the mood of many who sought desperately for work during the era.

Liverpool had suffered years of terminal decline due to manufacturing deindustrialisation. The confidence of the city was dented, and this was exasperated by a failing local authority. Poor Inefficient Services and poor VFM Failing Local Education Authority Poor Entrepreneurial Climate Stagnant development market Low rental & property values Declining retail offer

Why Liverpool? 10 By 1900, only 7% of ships using Liverpool were sailing ships, and the dock's days were numbered - it was too small to accommodate the larger iron and steel steamships. There was virtually no commercial shipping activity in the Albert Dock after 1920 - although its warehouses continued to be used for some years - and, after decades of disuse, it

finally closed in 1972. Nevertheless, the historical and architectural importance of the Albert Dock had long been recognised. By 1981, the entire complex was a scene of utter abandonment and dereliction. The turning point came in September 1983, with the signing of an agreement between the Merseyside Development Corporation and the specially created Albert Dock Company, which enabled the dramatic redevelopment of the dock to take place.

16 Grosvenor's 1billion million rebuilding of the Paradise Street area has been underway since October 2004. The largest retail scheme in Europe, it has 1.6 million square feet of new shopping space. It has improved access to the Albert Dock, creating a much-needed link between the waterfront and the city centre. The 42.5 acre scheme will contain over 30 individually designed buildings. The largest of these

is a brand new 240,000 sq ft John Lewis department store, the chain's largest in the North West. This has been joined by Debenhams, two hotels, a gallery, new bus station, new public park, cinema and parking for 3,000 vehicles. So what did they do? 17
