Liverpool Capital Of Culture 2008
Welcome to the archive website for Liverpool, European Capital of Culture 2008.
2008 was historic year for Liverpool, from the star-studded opening ceremony outside St George's Hall to the invasion of a giant spider and the closing 'transition' event at the Pier Head in January 09 - not to mention everything in between!
This Liverpool08..com is being developed. Please continue to visit to check its progress. We hope that it will be a useful site for people who want to look back on the year. We also intend to make more material available on the organisation, planning and delivery of the Liverpool 2008 to help researchers and also people involved with other major cultural projects and events.
Thank you for your support during 2008, which we hope will continue into the future.
Culture Liverpool is the new team charged with developing the Cultural programme for the City post 2008. For details about the Liverpool 2009 cultural programme see the press release here
