“Story To Tell?” The Lantern Theatre Sunday 1st July 2012

“Story To Tell?” The Lantern Theatre Sunday 1st July 2012...Pencil Trick Productions present “Story To Tell?” a brand new schedule of creative networking events taking place throughout 2012.

These bi-monthly forums held across Liverpool will aim to connect people who have ‘stories to tell’ with those who have the means to tell them. We want to link scriptwriters with directors, bands with video producers, artists with galleries, to name but a few. On a larger scale we also want to put local community groups and social enterprises who have something to tell the world in touch with the production companies, writers and videographers who can help them vocalise it.

Each event is tailored to a specific creative field and hosts exciting and knowledgeable industry guest speakers. We invite the relating artistic community to come and collaborate via our informal networking sessions.

The next “Story To Tell?” event will be held at The Lantern Theatre 57 Blundell Street, Liverpool, L1 0AJ, 6pm onwards on Sunday 1st July 2012

In association with A Rush of Laughter, this “Story To Tell?” Networking Event focuses on the ‘Comedy Industry’ with tips for success and insight from guest speakers including local compere and comic Che Burnley, award winning Stand Up Andy Watson who has supported on tour the likes of Paddy Mcguiness, Stand up Pete Otway described by Liverpool Echo as Amiable, cheeky classic stand up.” andHeadliner Seymour Mace - Star Of BBC3’s Ideal & Dave’s One Night Stand.

Tucked away in the heart of The Baltic Triangle the cosy and welcoming Lantern Theatre is building quite a reputation as the go to gig for North West comedy fans and comics alike. Monthly comedy night A Rush of Laughter is being hailed as the next big thing on the comedy circuit and is attracting a host of names, previous headliners include Alex Boardman, Sully O’Sullivan, Tony Burgess and Mark Rough.

International Lunch: Middle East - Liverpool Chamber

Liverpool Chamber of Commerce in partnership with UKTI will be hosting a series of International Lunches with a specific market focus to give you an overview of the opportunities available and to address any key issues in the market. The first of these lunches will take place at the Crowne Plaza on 20th June and will focus on the Middle East, which continues to offer high potential for UK companies looking to export.

Market Information

UK exports to the Near and Middle East accounted GBP11.5bn of visible exports in 2010 and trade in services surpassing this. With Saudi Arabia envisaging an expenditure of $385bn on infrastructure projects and Qatar looking to spend USD60bn on transport links, logistics facilities and hospitality in the run up to hosting the 2022 World Cup, there is no doubt that there is a wealth of opportunity available to UK companies in the area.
