Supporting the Community
The Picket regularly promotes benefit concerts for local and national community organisations to assist with fundraising and awareness. In March 2009 the Picket hosted the launch of the Hillsborough Memorial CD 'Fields of Anfield Road' to mark the 20th Anniversary of the disaster.
The venue with its excellent in-house backline, PA and lighting systems is also available for hire.
