The Live Calendar is a compendium of local and regional political, civic and cultural events. It was suspended in March 2020 as was the Daily Briefing, as the Covid pandemic upended everyone’s schedules. We’re happy to be bringing both back, in altered forms. The Daily Calendar had a serious case of covid: it’s much skinnier, less populated and still recovering, the previous calendar having been scrapped altogether. It’s slowly being rebuilt as local events ramp back up, with one significant change: now you can input your own calendar events directly onto the site as you wish them to appear (pending approval of course). To include your event in the Live Calendar, please fill out this form.

Then he wrote this line: “Let the great world spin forever down the ringing grooves of change.” [Tennyson, Memoir by His Son] And so a notion more or less applicable to a journey between Liverpool and Manchester was generalized into a pattern of the universe “for ever.” ” ”
