Back to where it all began. From hobby to haven.
Back to where it all began!

Yes, second from left, that’s me with dark hair.

From a hobby to a haven

How did Culture Calendar become a vibrant community of women?

Who knew a simple hobby could blossom into a vibrant social community for women? That’s exactly what happened with Culture Calendar, and it all started with a spark of inspiration.

It was 2013 when I posted a random note on the internet “Do you want more out of life? Then put down the remote, and come and join like minded ladies in your community”.  And they did!  “Social Butterflies” was born.  My passion project for connecting local like minded women through shared passion for live entertainment.

Fast forward to today, and Culture Calendar is a thriving hub, offering exclusive access to luxury coach trips and events, which include only the best tickets, and some of the best seats in the house!   But lets not forget the emphasis Culture Calendar put on friendship, community, performing arts and culture.

Looking back, the journey has been remarkable. As the founder, I can honestly say I believe in Culture Calendar with my whole heart. It’s about more than luxury coach trips and live entertainment.  Culture Calendar genuinely fosters and promotes a important sense of belonging for local women in Merseyside, and West Lancashire.

Culture Calendar commitment truly shone through during the challenging times over the past few years. Before the recent travel boom and the rising cost of living, there were many hurdles to overcome. Yet, the show went on! Culture Calendar remained a source of positivity and distraction, offering virtual tours, historical explorations, and even drive-in movie nights. We explored beaches, parks, and even squirrel havens (yes, you read that right!), all in an effort to keep spirits high and foster hope for a brighter future.

Staying positive for Culture Calendar Ladies was crucial, and all that effort paid off, and it can be summed up in one simple private message that I received which left me speechless!

The message came from a member who had never commented or interacted with any posts or live video’s which stemmed over an 18 month period.    Yet, this lady private messaged me to express her deepest gratitude.    She said “Culture Calendar, has been a beacon of light during my families personal struggles, offering solace and hope even in the darkest of times”.

Hearing that message brought a wave of emotions: a heavy heart for their struggles, and a profound sense of joy at being able to help in some way. It solidified the importance of Culture Calendar; it wasn’t just about outings, it was about creating a supportive space where women could connect and lift each other up.

So, if you’re looking for a vibrant community of women who share a love for culture, laughter, and shared experiences, with friends, then Culture Calendar is your safe haven ladies. Join us on exclusive trips, enjoy premium event access, and most importantly, forge meaningful friendships along the way. Who knows, maybe your next adventure awaits.

A decadent champagne afternoon tea.
A Champagne Afternoon Tea with a difference

Intrigue, Suspense, and Prosecco

Did you miss our recent Titanic Murder Mystery Afternoon Tea? Picture this: clinking champagne flutes, a dash of suspense, and a spot of theatrical flair – This Culture Calendar event was a recipe for unforgettable whodunit fun!

The moment we set sail onboard the Titanic (metaphorically, of course), we were swept into a world of intrigue. Fellow passengers (aka our wonderful members) quickly found themselves engrossed in lively debates and playful interrogations. As we savored a delicious afternoon tea, clues and motives swirled around us, with a red herring or two thrown in for good measure.

This was an interactive themed theatrical dinner at its best.  A whodunnit dinner party that we won’t forget, even though the plot thickened with each course.

The talented actors brought the story to life, their convincing performances leaving us guessing until the very end. During the interval, it was time to put our sleuthing skills to the test! We grilled the suspects, dissecting their alibis and uncovering hidden agendas.

Suspenseful twists, surprising reveals, and laugh-out-loud moments kept us on the edge of our seats. It was an adventure on the high seas (well, a beautifully decorated function room!) a stage set we won’t forget in a hurry.

Based on the overwhelming feedback, we’ll be hosting another Murder Mystery Afternoon Tea soon – so get ready to flex your detective muscles once more!

Our next Murder Mystery Dining event will be a stately event for Gold Card Members.  A skillfully performed performance made for deceiving actors, actresses, and audiences.

But one question?  Are you a competitive type of woman?  Culture Calendar ladies work as a team to analyse all the twists and turns and motives together, but it’s so much fun!

So, when you’re ready to test your detective skills, and join the unforgettable camaraderie with fellow mystery lovers, join us.

A promising night of side splitting comedy
Theatre Comedy Chaos at its best

A night of Comedy and Chaos

A pre-theatre wine and dine.  Rip roaring laughter.  A night surrounded by your closest girlfriends, for a top-notch comedy performance at The Royal Court Theatre Liverpool.

Did you know that laughter, when shared with friends offers amazing health benefits and advantages.  A good old belly laugh can leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

You’ve heard the saying “Laughter is the Best Medicine”:

We juggle so much.  Between work, family, daily responsibilities, schedules, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed sometimes.  That’s where laughter comes in as a powerful stress reliever with Culture Calendar, and a good old chuckle with friends.   Laughter can:

  • Melt Away Tension: A hearty laugh triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. This can help reduce stress hormones like cortisol, leaving you feeling lighter and more relaxed.
  • Boost Your Immunity: Studies suggest laughter can increase the production of infection-fighting antibodies, potentially strengthening your immune system and making you less susceptible to illnesses.
  • Reduce Pain: Laughter is a natural pain reliever. Endorphins released during laughter can help alleviate discomfort, making you feel better overall.

Culture Calendar is your ticket to laughter, friendship, and entertainment made easy.

Culture Calendar’s comedy nights are designed to provide the perfect recipe for a memorable night out with your girlfriends:

  • Hilarious Comedians: We secure events featuring top comedians guaranteed to have you in stitches. From witty one-liners to side-splitting sketches, prepare to be thoroughly entertained.
  • Royal Court Ambiance: Experience the magic of theatre, comedy, music, live performance, and watch the comedy chaos unfold before your eyes.
  • Friends and Fun: Bond with your fellow Culture Calendar members over shared laughter and camaraderie. A night filled with humor is a great opportunity to connect, unwind, and create lasting memories.

The Fun Extends Beyond the Stage:

After the show, some members continued the fun by grabbing drinks at the Courtyard bar, catching up with friends, and creating new connections. There was even an exciting opportunity to meet the talented “Lost in Colomendy” actors, Liam Tobin (left) and Paul Duckworth (right), and grab a photograph with them too!

Your Thank you's mean the world to me.
Your Thank you's mean the world to me

Your Thank You’s mean the World to me

Running a social group can feel like no one hears you sometimes.   You take hours of time to create amazing events.  Create engaging posts, match with a sassy image, and pour your heart and sole into building a community of local like minded women.  But I have found social media to be a science.   Likes and comments can be overflowing on one post, and absent on another, and you wonder if all your hard work is resonating with anyone.

Here at Culture Calendar, we get it. We strive to create a space for women to connect, explore, and share experiences. It’s our passion, and we believe in the transformative power of bringing women together. But those quiet moments, can feel discouraging, as we constantly seek new ways to reach those who will truly benefit from Culture Calendar women’s friendship group.

  • Whether you’re a busy mum with no time for you.
  • You could be a professional who has recently relocated, and you are looking to make new friends in the area.
  • Did you lose a loved one.  A partner.   A friend.  Bereavement is very tough on us all.
  • Are you a full time carer, working so hard on looking after others, you forget to look after yourself?
  • You may be married, but your partner does not enjoy the same pass times.
  • Perhaps you’re a single lady, and whilst quietly confident and content, it’s just a whole lot more fun to make new friends and get social!

We’ve got you ladies!   Simply dip in and out as you please.

All of a sudden, along comes a ray of sunshine!    Recently, I received a message asking me to check my front door. There, waiting for me, was a beautiful bouquet of tulips alongside a heartfelt thank you card. It wasn’t just any thank you; it was a message of appreciation for all the effort poured into Culture Calendar, and a warm wish for our next coach trip.

The impact was immediate. My heart swelled with a joy, because you guys were listening all along.  In that moment, the countless hours, the meticulous planning, the relentless posting – it all crystallized into something tangible. This wasn’t just about likes and shares; it was about making a real difference in someone’s life.

Just one single thank you card served as a powerful reminder that you guys are watching all the time, and that Culture Calendar continues to make a big difference to womens lives in Merseyside and West Lancashire.

This thank you goes back to you. To the amazing women who make Culture Calendar what it is – a vibrant space of connection and support. Thank you for seeing the value in all of our everyday efforts, for participating in Culture Calendar tailor-made events, and for being a part of this incredible community of women.

Here’s to many more memories, shared experiences, and the joy of connection. We look forward to welcoming you on our next adventure!

Take the stress and the strain out of travel
Mercedes, Spritzer & Cher

“If I could turn back time”

Believe! Our Culture Calendar Coach Trip to The Cher Show at The Palace Theatre Manchester was magical.

Calling all musical theatre fans! Did you know we were booked, with fantastic tickets, and luxury return coach travel in style, picking up in Southport, Ormskirk, Maghull and Skelmersdale?

Culture Calendar’s luxury coach trip to The Palace Theatre Manchester was an absolute triumph.  A day and night that really has left us with fantastic memories.

Imagine us picking up friends enroute and giving a cheer when we picked up at each coach pick up point.   Our job was to whisk you away in comfort, safety and style on board this luxury Mercedes Sprinter vehicle.  Surrounded by a vibrant community of women, all buzzing with excitement for a night of dazzling costumes, powerhouse vocals, and a captivating story.

The Cher Show wasn’t your average stage performance biopic. This clever musical takes a unique approach, featuring three actresses portraying Cher at different stages of her legendary career. The thrilling journey of Cherilyn Sarkisian, from her humble beginnings to her meteoric rise as a global icon. Prepare to be wowed by talented artists, a phenomenal live band, and a show that simply doesn’t let up.

But the magic started long before the final curtain call ladies, as Culture Calendar purposely planned upto 3 hours leisure to spend as you please in the heart of Manchester before this evening performance.  An opportunity to shop ‘til you drop, indulge in a delicious pre-theatre meal, or simply wander the streets, soaking up the atmosphere.

The best part? The electrifying energy at the show was contagious! The entire stalls area, including our group, was on their feet, singing along, dancing, and clapping with unbridled joy.

We witnessed three artists portraying the life and times of Cher, belting out one hit record after another.  “I got you babe”, “Take me home”, “I feel something in the air”, “Love and understanding” “Strong Enough”, “A woman’s story”, and last but by no means least “I got you babe”.  It was an experience brought even the newest of members together.

Andrea Bocelli serenades the audience with captivating vocals
Andrea Bocelli Concert 2022

Witness the Power of Andrea Bocelli

Andrea Bocelli.  

The Andrea Bocelli Music Concert in Liverpool was awe-inspiring. This legendary Italian tenor, known for his unique blend of opera and pop, and such an accomplished musician, he will leave you breathless.

Andrea Bocelli’s powerful vocals have captivated audiences worldwide. His ability to seamlessly blend the richness of Italian opera with contemporary pop melodies which creates a unique blend of music.  Whether you’re a seasoned opera aficionado or simply appreciate exceptional music, Andrea Bocelli singing live is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.

Having witnessed Andrea Bocelli perform live several times, I can confidently say it’s an experience unlike any other. Andrea’s sang at one point, without accompaniment, orchestra, or microphone in the M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool.   This music stadium that seats 11,000 people, and yet Andrea’s voice could be heard so clear.  Andrea Bocelli’s voice is a force of nature, capable of captivating an audience of 11,000 people.   This was a spine-tingling moment for Culture Calendar ladies group.

Adding another heartwarming element to the concert is the inclusion of his talented son, Matteo Bocelli. Their performance together on the “I Believe” Tour created a special family moment, not to mention shared artistry and talent.

Our recent Culture Calendar Ladies’ trip to the Andrea Bocelli concert in Liverpool was a resounding success! We arrived early, allowing plenty of time to enjoy a pre-concert dinner and drinks. While the focus was undoubtedly the phenomenal performance, a touch of lighthearted fun before the stage performance ensured that we were already off to a flying start.

If you’re seeking an evening of musical brilliance and emotional resonance, look no further than an Andrea Bocelli concert. Search online for upcoming dates and locations near you, and prepare to be swept away by the power of this extraordinary artist.  Or better still – Join Culture Calendar.

“Culture Calendar is a Social Life-line”

How Culture Calendar Transformed My Life

Being a single mom of two is a whirlwind. Between juggling work, school runs, and everyday responsibilities, I rarely had time for myself. When I relocated to the area, I felt isolated and disconnected, yearning for a social life I never had. Enter Culture Calendar: a women’s social group that has become an invaluable part of my life.

From Isolation to Inclusion:

Joining Culture Calendar was a complete game-changer for me.  So welcoming, and friendly, and with a shared passion for theatre trips and local get togethers.  I met a vibrant community of like-minded women. Culture Calendar offer the perfect mix of exploring new towns and cities for performing arts, music concerts, comedy nights, murder mystery events, and captivating theatre shows in the West End – not to mention the very best tickets, and luxury travel.    The warmth and the friendship and shared experiences are something that I cherish.

Beyond the Stage Lights:

Culture Calendar offers much more than just theatre experiences. It provides an escape from the daily grind. They arrange everything, from luxury coach travel to some of the best tickets in town by booking coach trips and events so far in advance.  Joining Culture Calendar is such a stress-free experience.  Everything is organized for you.  Culture Calendar offer the women of West Lancashire and Merseyside a very valuable service, but importantly, friendship.   Whether it’s a red-carpet event or an intimate conversation with a celebrity, this women’s social group caters to a variety of tastes.

An Investment in Happiness:

“While a single mom’s budget can sometimes be tight, but a membership with Culture Calendar is a much needed investment in myself and my personal well-being.  I feel better for it.  I have a busy social calendar to look forward to, and it has introduced me to so many local ladies to catch up with coffee mid week.  I love Culture Calendar, and I would recommend anyone and everyone try it for themselves.  Catherine is a lovely lady.  The perfect fit for what must be a very demanding role”.  A friend to all.

Friendship, Fun, and Flexibility:  While socializing often involves drinks (we have our fair share of fun on those coach trips!), there’s no pressure to participate. Every lady is free to enjoy herself in her own way. The beauty of Culture Calendar lies in its flexibility. Whether you prefer lively outings or quiet moments, there’s always an event that caters to your mood.

More Than Just Events:

Culture Calendar has helped me discover a new world of possibilities. I have tried coach trips and events i might never have otherwise booked, based on what others have told me in the group.   Classical Music.   Edward Scissor Hands the Ballet.

It’s a constant source of joy, friendship, and cultural exploration. If you’re looking to escape the routine, meet new people, and create lasting memories, this women’s social group is an excellent choice. So, take a leap of faith and join us – you won’t regret it!

What does puzzle me a little is … no one is holding a glass 🤣.  That doesn’t happen very often on a Culture Calendar Coach Trip!

All that Jazz the Musical, a captivating world of jazz.
Musical Theatre, and all that Jazz

Sizzle and Sass: The allure of Chicago the Musical

Bedazzled by a timeless classic.  Chicago the Musical.  Its captivating.  So many characters.  Songs from the Musical: “Razzle Dazzle” “Mr Cellophane” “Funny Honey” “Cell Block Tango”.

 Ambitious young women / actresses, and the unforgettable theme jazz tunes.  Culture Calendar booked excellent seats to see Chicago The Musical at The Winter Gardens Theatre in Blackpool to witness this iconic stage production.  Even though I had previously seen this very same performance in Liverpool …. it was that good!

Chicago the Musical is rooted in the 1920’s events of Chicago, and tells the story of Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly.  Two murderesses vying for fame and freedom set in the confines of the county jail.

Chicago the Musical is full of suspense, and theatrics.  A sassy performance that was inspired by real-life murderesses Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner, and Chicago the Musical touches on the manipulative power of celebrity and deceipt.

Chicago the Musical is a classic with its energetic choreography, catchy tunes, and witty dialogue, it will have you captivating with stage magic from start to finish.

A guaranteed crowd pleaser, Chicago the Musical is the longest-running Broadway musical, but its fair to say that Culture Calendar did a bit of crowd pleasing on the day themselves, as we teamed this event with a three hour stop at pretty coastal resort of Lytham St Annes before this evening performance.

Members had the option to shop until they drop, wine and dine at their leisure, or take a scenic walk along the coast, with ample time to relax with fellow musical lovers, not to mention a pre-theatre drink or two.

Curtain Up and Culture Connections:  Join the Culture Calendar Fun!

So, for what’s on near me, ie., Southport, Ormskirk, Maghull, Skelmersdale, Rainford, Birkdale, Burscough and more – there is plenty going on when you choose to step onto a luxury coach with Culture Calendar women’s social group, for Entertainment Made Easy, and “All that Jazz”

Indulge your taste buds before the curtain rises for a pre-theatre wine and dine.

From strangers to friends

How Culture Calendar brough us together!

Life is richer with laughter, shared experiences, and the warmth of genuine connection. But sometimes, finding that connection can feel daunting. Enter Culture Calendar, a women’s social group that has become a beacon of friendship and fun for many, including myself.

Through Culture Calendar, I’ve met a fantastic group of women who, like me, came in as strangers and discovered a beautiful sense of belonging. We didn’t know each other beforehand, despite living surprisingly close! Now, we get together regularly, not just for the exciting coach trips and events but for a casual last minute coffee, movie night, or cheese and wine evening.

Catherine, the Connector at Our Core:

Special mention goes to Catherine, our wonderful host! She’s an expert at welcoming new members and making introductions, ensuring everyone feels comfortable and included. These pre-event gatherings are a fantastic way to break the ice before larger outings, fostering genuine friendships that go beyond the initial activity.

Laughter, Food, and Unforgettable Memories:

Recently, our Culture Calendar adventures took us to a highly-rated restaurant (pre-booked for convenience and accessibility!) for a delicious pre-show meal. With fantastic company and a group that already knew each other well, the evening was filled with laughter and lighthearted conversation. The highlight, however, was the comedy night that followed. The performances were side-splittingly funny, leaving us in stitches – and this was actually a coach trip that was voted for by Culture Calendar Members, and Catherine arranged the rest!

The Magic of Community and belonging.

I signed up for one, as many women do.  But this was definitely the best possible way to spend a Sunday.  Being picked up by luxury coach.  Delicious food with great friends.  Plenty of vino for those that wanted it, and a side-splitting evening performance voted for by Culture Calendar Members!  I mean.  What more could you ask for?  Culture Calendar provides such a sense of belonging.  Culture Calendar is unique in what it offers women, and occasionally men, depending on what membership you sign up for, but its totally worth it!

Are you ready to turn a limited social life to limitless ladies?  Come and join the Culture Calendar Fun, for Luxury Coach trip and Entertainment Made Easy.

Food was exceptional.  Highly rated restaurant. Pre-booked.  Perfectly accessible to our venue for the evening … great company, and one of the funniest performances we have ever seen!

Now that’s what I call magic!

From Dim Sum, Diva Delights and Dazzling Performances
Chinese New Year Girls Night Out

From Dinner to Diva at The Peacock

Well, I wasn’t expecting that!

A culinary adventure at The Peacock Restaurant, Ormskirk.  Delectable cuisine, laughter, and a few unexpected surprises.

Is it strange the some ladies can meet for the first time and get on like a house on fire, because that is exactly what happened on this night!   But it’s not a one off ladies.  It happens all the time!

A perfect blend of delicious food, great entertainment, and social interaction.    A tantalizing array of chinese banquet dishes.  From savory dim sum to tasty main courses.  A food dish with a symphony of flavours, textures and aroma’s, with my favourite being Fillet Steak Cantonese Style.

Oh the melt-in-your-mouth tenderness of the steak, perfectly complemented by the sweet and savory Cantonese sauce. Just writing about it makes my mouth water again!

But from Dinner to Diva – lets talk about our shining stars on the night!

While the phenomenal food was a highlight, the evening took an unexpected turn when we discovered the hidden talents within our Culture Calendar group! Little did we know that a simple dinner would transform into a night of karaoke revelry.

One by one, our ladies took to the stage, showcasing their impressive singing and dancing abilities. The entire restaurant buzzed with an electric atmosphere as we cheered each other on. The camaraderie and fun was contagious with everyone in the restaurant singing along and clapping!

Culture Calendar’s Karaoke Queens:

Most surprisingly, our group’s collective talent didn’t go unnoticed! Our spirited performances not only entertained the entire restaurant but even led one lady to win the karaoke competition on the night.  Well done to Catherine Hatch.

This unforgettable evening at The Peacock left us with countless memories, and a heartwarming realization that every single person has something to offer the next.

Music by Candlelight

Unforgettable Candlelit Concerts & Local Sisterhood!

Calling all music lovers in West Lancashire! We, the Culture Calendar Ladies, recently enjoyed a magical evening at a candlelit music concert, and we want you to be part of the experience!

Imagine: Soft flickering candlelight illuminating a stunning venue, the captivating sounds of a string quartet filling the air, and the shared joy of music with a network of like-minded women. This isn’t just a concert; it’s a luxurious escape right on your doorstep.

Are you wondering What’s on Ormskirk, or What’s on Southport? Look no further! Candlelit music concerts are popping up in celebrated historical venues across the UK, offering a diverse range of musical experiences for every taste.

From the elegance of string quartets and the power of piano concertos to thrilling West End medleys and iconic Bond movie scores, there’s something for everyone.

Culture Calendar recently enjoyed a captivating tribute to Coldplay by a talented string quartet in the intimate setting of The Concert Room at St George’s Hall, Liverpool. The ambiance was truly magical – a stage adorned with flowers bathed in the warm glow of candlelight. It’s a truly special experience perfect for a midweek escape.

Accessibility note: While St George’s Hall offers a stunning backdrop, The Concert Room is accessed by a spiral staircase, making The Concert Room a less suitable venue for those with mobility issues.

The concert itself was a delightful hour and a quarter, with a short intermission for socializing and planning future adventures with Culture Calendar. The best part? We had convenient pick-up points in Southport, Ormskirk, Maghull, Skelmersdale, and Burscough, making it easy to join the fun!

When you are ready to experience the magic of candlelit concerts and build a network of local like minded friends who share your passion for music and culture ..

Happy 10th Anniversary Culture Calendar
Who would have thought?

Celebrating our 10th Anniversary

Who knew a simple online post back in 2013 would blossom into a thriving community ten years later? Here at Culture Calendar Women’s Social Group (formerly Social Butterflies!), we started with a vision: to connect like-minded women in West Lancashire through shared experiences in the world of entertainment.

It all began with a single post: “Want more out of life? Put down the remote, dress to impress, and come and join like minded women” And come they did! A vibrant group of women answered the call, eager to trade the comfort of their couches for the electrifying energy of live entertainment.

The Journey Wasn’t Always Smooth Sailing:

The path wouldn’t be without its bumps. Organizing coach trips to performing arts events across towns and cities like Southport, Ormskirk, Burscough, Maghull, and Skelmersdale presented its challenges. There were logistical hurdles, unforeseen setbacks, and the occasional hiccup. But through it all, the unwavering spirit of our social group persevered.

Laughter, Memories, and the Power of Shared Experiences:

However, the struggles paled in comparison to the joy, laughter, heartwarming moments and friendship that unfolded on each coach trip and event. From the sheer exhilaration of a rocking pop concert to the side-splitting antics of a murder mystery dinner, each adventure became a shared memory, strengthening the bonds within our community.

Witnessing the unique energies brought by each woman to Culture Calendar has been an absolute delight. Their enthusiasm, diverse interests, and infectious laughter are the magic ingredients that keep us going.

A Decade of Community, Performing Arts and Culture:

Today, Culture Calendar stands tall as a testament to the power of shared experiences and a supportive network. We’ve grown from a simple online post to a thriving community that celebrates all things stage, theatre, musicals, comedy, murder mystery events, across England, Scotland, and Wales – possibly Ireland too!

Are you a woman in West Lancashire seeking exciting nights out, captivating entertainment, and the warmth of a supportive community? Then Culture Calendar is the perfect place for you! We invite you to join our vibrant social group, embark on unforgettable adventures, and create lasting memories that will leave you smiling long after the curtain falls.
