Ten years ago, Liverpool was on the edge of one of the biggest years in its history. The city’s year as European Capital of Culture was life-changing, not just for the city itself but for its cultural sector, for how the city was seen and for the sheer number of people coming to Liverpool to enjoy it. It’s estimated 2008 brought over £750m to Liverpool’s economy, with over 9m visitors.
