Sorry Pie but that post is a perfect example of the wankery of 'engerlundsnooerthwest'... what does it mean?

Does Liverpool cultural sector take up 5 or 20% of our economy? What is Manchester's? can it really be safe to average out these stats as the cultural industries make up virtually the same in Barrow as in Chester?... who the fuck knows?


We should put a ban on anything with a 'northwest' average or indices... it is a waste of your time reading them!

Agree with that, unfortunately, given the way money flows down the system, eg through the Arts Council's regional office in Manchester, and through the NWDA, there are too many funders who simply require "northwesternification". I think the Arts Council was committed to funding the evaluation, so it's a shame if its manky "north west" office have bastardised the thing into a north west study. Typical.

That said, the evaluation sounds good, you can never have too much evaluation. Weird as it sounds, a good evaluation will be one of the legacies of 2008, as it will be an opportunity for Liverpool to boast on the global arts-led regeneration circuit about how clever it was (even if it wasn't). The good thing about these kinds of studies is that they tend to accentuate the positive, the failures are sometimes softened into "lessons that were learned" and "areas were expectations and delivery were not fully aligned".

I think you actually missed my last line(s) Tony.....

Culture Culture and Cash .....£££££

and a lot of it starts with an 0161....


I just wondered is `Manchester` is trying to also cash in on the control of `Northwest` Tourism.....

Juding by the links it would be hard to say they weren`t.....

Far from being a waste of time it`s quite an eye opener given Liverpools existing `Tourism` gain and it`s future potential - even if Liverpool is set to also cash in on it`s heritage in yet more ways.

Trans atlantic and ever more globally.

If it wasn`t we wouldn`t have talked on the forum so much about `Global` branding.

`Northwest` global branding doesn`t exist - `Liverpool` global branding does.

I was at my local north london tube this morning - Archway - and I saw one of those big ads for Capital of Culture - it was the Anthony Gormley statues on the beach. The poster was stunning. Hopefully it will have the desired affect, there was one at Euston northern line tube as well.

That's good to hear, Kenrick, I've not seen any ads for it yet. Welcome to the Forum, by the way.

There's stories I could tell you, lads.

No, it's quite boring really. Various characters keep trying to convert me to fundamentalist Christianity.

One of the members of staff keeps on sitting next to me when I'm at breakfast and asking how I am. I think he's my case worker.

New flat, May 11. They've promised me this time.

My mission is to locate one of those pubs in and around London that now stocks Cains Lager. I'll take a photo on my camera and post it once I've gotten hold of a pint.

I was thinking about this yesterday funny enough. I wonder how Cains is going down in London?

There's a list on Cains' website that lists them all.

There are mostly in rather upscale bits of west central and west London that where I don't usually find myself when I'm in London.

However, the Royal George on Charing Cross Road (that rare thing, a popular west end pub near Leicester Square that isn't horrendously awful) is easy for me to get to and near where I usually check out for shopping when I'm in London (the bookshops, Fopp in Seven Dials).

There's a Cains Finest lager with my name on it, probably this weekend.

Ooh, the list shows this pub, Blabs: Adelphi, 3-5 Hunslet Road, LEEDS LS10.

Snap to it!

A-haa! I wondered whether there would be any in Leeds. So I take it that list only applies to the lager? I'm more of a bitter man myself (-as you can probably tell from my posts I wish they would start distributing their cask stuff more. The bitter in particular is excellent and I'm sure would go down well over here in Yorkshire.

I'm perusing my Good Beer guide and I can't find this 'Adelphi' pub, which makes me suspicious. But then again, they don't mention all good pubs. I think I know where it is. I will go there today and post up later!!!
