If you read our blog regularly, you'll know about our work with the very clever John O'Shea to develop an identity for his latest project, PBF. In a nutshell, John is reviving the traditional skill of creating footballs out of pig's bladders. The creation of these balls are then and situated within a wider context of competition, fanaticism and bio-science.

As part of the AND Festival, (launching this Thursday) 84 Bold Street (opposite LEAF) in Liverpool will be transformed into an Organic Football Boutique. (30th September - 2nd October 11am-6pm).

As well as an opportunity to get up close to some of the finished footballs, there's also an opportunity to get your hands dirty.

Friday: Hands-on Workshop - make your own Pigs Bladder Footballs! (11am-1pm & 1pm-3pm)

Open to all ages/places limited - send an email to hello@andfestival.org.uk if you fancy this...

Saturday: FANATICISM Salon Discussion - What does it mean to be a fan today? (3pm at LEAF)

Chaired by Prof. Andy Miah with special guest James McKenna (Spirit of Shankly)

Sunday: Pigs Bladder Football - Keepy Uppies competition behind FACT! (12- 2pm)
