“I’m delighted to see The BME re-opening in Liverpool this weekend and I know our crew is really excited to welcome visitors again. We’re all keen to do our part to get Liverpool and the UK enjoying summer safely. It’s been a hard few months for everyone, but the BME crew and I are confident we can welcome visitors back for a fun, friendly, engaging and, above all else, safe experience.”
