Global Scouse Day is an annual celebration of the city of Liverpool which is held every year on February 28th.
It is primarily based around scouse; the meat (or veggie) stew that is synonymous with the city, and sees bars, cafes and restaurants in Liverpool and around the world put scouse on the menu for the day. Scouse is also served in Liverpool schools, hospitals, and on Virgin trains nationwide. In recent years Global Scouse Day has grown to encompass music, art and cinema from across the city.
Global Scouse Day began with a “scouse supper” with friends held every year on Liverpudlian adventurer Graham Hughes‘s birthday. When he left the country in December 2008, Laura Worthington (of Laura’s Little Bakery fame) thought it would be fun to continue the tradition in his absence.
