There will be an exciting performance featuring some of the most innovative young people’s groups in Liverpool at the moment, including MD Productions who are well known to many for their successful appearances on Britain’s Got Talent and the MTV EMA awards.

Anyone is welcome, so just pop in after the last ringing off the bells and be inspired by some of the most talented young people in Liverpool!
