Phil Redmond added: "It just shows the resilience of the people of the Liverpool City Region who even now are making a significant impact to culture and creativity.” During the ceremony, the Borough of Culture title was handed from Sefton to Halton, the next of the city region’s six boroughs to hold the title.
