“Other filming location bookings included Amazon, the BBC, ITV and Paramount+.”

“We’ve refined the way we deliver event services for our customers and have big plans for the year ahead.”

Hosted by NML has won a series of industry awards this year, including Business Events Venue of the Year for Museum of Liverpool, and Tourism Young Person of the Year for Neve Sutton, at the Liverpool City Region tourism awards.
