City bids for ‘music city’ title

The city of Liverpool, which is already a UNESCO World Heritage City, is bidding to become England’s first UNESCO City of Music.

If successful it will become one of only four other cities with the title – including Glasgow.

A four-month long mapping exercise showing where music is made and played in Liverpool will be put together before the bid is handed in next year.

“Music is in Liverpool’s blood,” a city council spokesman said
