Bordeaux Wine Festival in Liverpool and an exchange of bottles!
Liverpool has chosen to host a festival dedicated to Bordeaux wines to coincide with the departure of the Tall Ships Regatta for Dublin-Bordeaux, from 25 to 28 May 2018. A great way to create a bridge between the Regatta departure and arrival cities!
To strengthen the link, it is highly likely that a ship will be departing from Bordeaux in May to deliver a barrel of wine to our English friends... In return, one of the Tall Ships Regatta boats leaving from Liverpool will be transporting a monumental, participative work called Message in the bottle by the artist Lulu Quinn. And what is the message? The 8-metre-long bottle will be filled with hundreds of plastic bottles. On each of the bottles will be a message from a child in Liverpool to a child in Bordeaux... The idea being to raise awareness of the pollution of oceans while at the same time creating links!
