LIVERPOOL'S Marina & Harbour Club was the venue for the first Liverpool Chamber networking event of the year.
The event took on a new format for 2011, with a focus on two sessions of table networking before and after dinner.
More than 40 guests took the opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal and make good business contacts.
Following smash hit productions The Salon, Night Collar and 4 Girls and a Caravan, St Helens Theatre Royal have produced the hilarious Scouse comedy, The Ciggie Run.
The show, which opened last week, is written by John Evans and directed by Sylvie Gatrill, and has a stellar cast including local favourites, Brookside's Louis Emerick, Come Fly With Me's Ozzie Yue, Wish FM's Kev Seed and comedian Micky Finn.
The show started off as one of a series of short plays that cabbie-turned-playwright John Evans created to be showcased at the Casa, in Liverpool, and will be at the Theatre Royal until February 13.
