Tinsel at the ready, mince pies in the oven; it’s that time of year again and the Baltic Triangle has something sparkly lined up for the festive season.
In special honour of the wintery holiday, Constellations will play host to the very merry Baltic Xmas party and fundraiser on the 7th December. Tickets are already on sale for £10 per person which includes a cosy bowl of Santa’s scouse and a Chrimbo bevy on arrival. There will also be a live jazz band, The Jam Scones Quartet to keep the jingle bell vibes going. Packing more Christmas in that we can muster, mulled cider and hot spiced apple juices will also be on the menu to keep you snug as a bug in the winter weather.
In aid of giving you and the Baltic Triangle an early Chrimbo present, the Baltic Xmas party will donate half of all the ticket profit towards some exciting new projects across the Baltic Triangle in the New Year.
This fast approaching, festive treat will support Liverpool’s creative hub in all the up-and-coming projects surrounding the area. It’s a chance to take the giving season quite literally and support the area as a community.
Whats in the Pipeline?
The £5 per ticket raised will help projects like the Baltic Triangle Skate Park repair, an ever growing project lead by the community business support group .
The Make the Skate Park Boss project has a few clear objectives so far; to fix the most dangerous elements of the fence surrounding the area, clearing rubbish, rubble and anything else that could be a risk in the park, organise bins and the collection of those bins in the future and to create some comfortable and attractive seating and/or benches for the Baltic’s local community.
The Baltic Triangle CIC have been consulting with the Skaters who created the park way-back-when and have already raised a fair bit money to help restore the concrete and make safe. The CIC has also gone as far as designing new plans, which you can see above.
Donations have come from CIC board members, with companies such as L A G Prichard Chartered Architects, The Northern School’s Trust and of-course the Baltic Triangle CIC. Other companies such as Colu – The Liverpool Pound have also pledged to contribute.
The Skate Park has a fascinating history and is a dynamic part of the Baltic Triangle and its character. So it is vital that we raise money as a community to keep this valuable Skate Park alive, even scrooge would agree.
The fundraiser will also go towards art projects in the area, such as the Skin Of The City and Art In The Baltic. Money will go towards new materials needed to display the artwork on the walls of the Baltic Triangle as well as boosting and promoting the project in any way we can. If you would like to know more about our Art In The Baltic project have a look at our article: Baltic Calling: Artists needed for street art project.
There are also plans to create unique street signage with the money raised. Adapting the iconic Baltic Triangle logo, the creators have constructed a cool and quirky sign to grab the attention of passers-by. The distinctive design of the triangular street signs will add more character to the already quirky area, further intensifying the idea that the Baltic Triangle as a point of interest and something to remember.
These projects are the very reason the Baltic has come so far in the last couple of years. Original ideas like the art projects and the Skate Park are what makes the Baltic Triangle cool, creative and independent. The area is unique for a reason. That reason is the community’s sense of unique style and chilled branding.
The projects keeps the triangle buzzing, they create interest and pull people back. Money raised from events and donations have shaped the area into the ever expanding creative hub that it is today. All we need now is to keep that momentum going but this time in Christmas style.
We have a feeling this year’s Christmas is going to get Baltic. Buy your Tickets Here
