Bold Street – BIG SWEEP

Iliad were pleased to support the BIG SWEEP on Bold Street in Liverpool on Sunday 25th September.
Bold Street was originally laid out as a ropewalk; a long thin area of land used in the manufacture of rope.  They used to measure the rope from the top of Bold Street to the bottom because it was the standard length needed for sailing ships.  It was laid out for residences around 1780 and named after Jonas Bold, a noted slave merchant, sugar trader and banker.
Over centuries, Bold Street has retained its uniqueness and today boasts a collection of independent retailers, shops, cafes, restaurants and residents.  The BIG SWEEP forms part of the Bold Street Festival and aims at bringing local businesses and residents together to ensure the future success of such an historical street.
Iliad is heavily committed to developing and growing such an important street in Liverpool and attended the BIG SWEEP, along with teams from Sapporo Teppanyaki and Il Forno.

The BIG SWEEP took place on Sunday 25th September between 11.00am and 12.00pm.
