A Great Night at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards
We are celebrating winning the Large Visitor Attraction of the Year at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards
Last night was a tremendous evening for Liverpool Cathedral, as we scooped Large Visitor Tourist Attraction in the Liverpool City Region Tourist Awards for a fourth time.
Liverpool City Region Tourist Awards were presented at a glittering gala ceremony held in our Cathedral. We were up against strong competition from Knowsley Safari, Tate Liverpool, The Atkinson and the World Museum.
Winning the award comes just under a month after we held our sell-out Space, The Universe and Everything installation by Luxmuralis when thousands of visitors we treated to an immersive light and sound show.
Dean of Liverpool, the Very Revd Dr Sue Jones said:
“As Dean of Liverpool for nearly four years, I have seen a moon landing, the sun go up and travelled into Space. Winning this fantastic accolade for a second time during my tenure, especially after a very difficult two years for everyone in tourism, is a true testament to the great team we have and the diverse activities we do.
“It confirms to me that the Cathedral is a place built by the people, for the people of Merseyside and beyond. Treasured and loved by those people, we are a place of encounter where they can be in the awesome presence of God."
Paul Smith the Cathedral's Director of Enterprise added
“Receiving this accolade for a fourth time is an incredible honour and reinforces our position as one of the top visitor destinations in the city.
“The Awards is a recognition of what a unique place Liverpool Cathedral holds in this culturally diverse and exciting city. The competition for this Award, as with every year, was extremely strong, so to triumph in this important category feels truly special.
“Winning this Award is a team effort, an acknowledgement of all the hard work we’ve all put in over the last year. Thank you and well done to everyone at the Cathedral.”
