A live music venue has joined forces with the City Region in the belief it provide a real boost for Birkenhead.
Future Yard is a live entertainment complex that plans to attract national and international artists as well as provide opportunities for local musicians and training for young people to have careers in live music.
The Argyle St operation received Future Innovation Fund support with the aim of providing the Wirral town with a huge lift as it emerges from Covid-19 restrictions.
Co-founder Craig Pennington said: ‘’It’s been tough but we know there are people at the City Region who have got our back and that makes it a little bit easier.
‘’Here at Future Yard we think that music can change the world and we want to start with our home town.
‘’I think having a City Region Music Board which is really engaged, means that the sector’s got representation so that we can shape the response to Covid.’’
