Paul Gives A Big Thumbs Up To Liverpool’s 'Bombed Out Church'
Following the success of the Bombed Out Church’s Crowdfunder campaign the group have raised over £20,000 towards the continued opening of this iconic city venue on Leece Street, Liverpool. Dance music promoters Club Freeze were so impressed with the venue after their recent event there that they contacted Paul to let him know what is going on in his home town. This was his response,
"St Luke’s Church - better known as 'The Bombed-Out Church' to the people of Liverpool - is a place that encourages people to express themselves. The people of Liverpool should do everything possible to keep this venue open for the use of the people and run by the people. It is a place that is regularly staffed by students from LIPA and every-day people of all ages, religions and backgrounds. It would be a terrible shame if we lost this cultural icon."
Paul joins Yoko Ono in praising the work being done over the last 7 years at St Luke’s. Ambrose Reynolds, the Curator of St Luke’s, says:
“It means the world for us to have the support of this international legend. The tremendous support we have received from the public means that we can continue to open the city centre ruined church for music, theatre, art exhibitions and outdoor movie screenings.”
If you would like to follow Paul’s example visit Saint Luke’s Wednesdays to Sunday 12-6pm.
