Join Professional Liverpool and Capital & Centric for one of our most exciting Region of the Future events yet!

We all know the Littlewoods building. Boldly unique - an art deco masterpiece. It was always meant to be epic, with almost a kilometre of stucco-faced façade across the two original wings of the building.

It’s been sitting unused for decades under threat of demolition, but now, Capital & Centric are turning it into a world-class media hub, featuring film & TV studios.

Join John Moffat as he takes us through the plans for this incredible site at this exclusive event. A behind the scenes glimpse at what's to come - and how this iconic Liverpool landmark is set to become a breeding ground for the best creative talents in the UK!

Our Region of the Future series is a work in progress, and we've got events lined up to late 2020 to showcase the brilliant work being done by local individuals and businesses to put Liverpool back into the global spotlight.

Set to be home to an array of creative workspace and workshop accommodation, it will be a one-stop shop for media creation, all centred around an expansive multi-purpose food and drink hub, featuring a 150-seat screening room for everything from artisan film screenings to showcases for media students. There's over 300,000 square feet up for grabs, so if you're interested, get yourself booked on for more information!
