THERE was Champagne, chic and celebrations galore as brand new designer store Amethyst finally opened its doors.

Amethyst, based in the trendy Cavern Walks, Liverpool, will be the first fashion store outside London to stock exclusive brands like Erdem, Camilla & Marc and 12th Street, by Cynthia Vincent.

Lucky guests, including Hollyoaks girls Sarah Jayne Dunn and Carly Stenson, were also treated to Amethyst goodie bags filled with gifts including vest tops and notebooks by American Vintage, jewellery by local designer Claudia Pink, rings by Red Lotus and bath products by Lush, as well as a special introductory discount cards and much more.

Liverpool will celebrate being awarded European Capital of Culture this year with artwork by one of its most famous sons being shown in the capital. The John Lennon exhibition will feature the Complete Collection of the late Beatle's artwork for the first time in their entirety in Liverpool. The exhibition runs at the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo building until June 2.

Bank Holiday weekend proved to be a busy one for the cast of Hollyoaks. Actor Nick Pickard, who plays Tony in the Chesterbased soap, organised a Soapstar Football Challenge at Chester City Football Club on Saturday, where stars from all the major soaps fought out a tough match (Hollyoaks beat the AllStars 4-3).

Chester Racecourse was then the venue in the evening for the inaugural Hollyoaks Charity Ball.

This star-studded event was organised by Lime Pictures to raise funds for Claire House and The Alder Hey Imagine Appeal. A staggering pounds 20,000 was collected over the two events, which were sponsored by David M Robinson jewellers and Cruise designer clothing. Corrie's Kym Ryder was among those who helped make the evening a stunning success.
