Rail travellers across the UK will get a taste of Liverpool on 28 February.

The entire Virgin Train network will be serving up pies, courtesy of Anfield bakery Home Baked. And apart from placing pies alongside scouse (a traditional Liverpudlian beef or lamb stew) on the menu across its UK train networks, Virgin will be also staging celebratory events at its Lime Street base.

Gary Campbell from Virgin Trains said: “We’re really keen to engage with local community initiatives here in Liverpool and celebrate the city; what better way to do this than through Global Scouse Day?

“We had a brilliant time taking part in last year’s celebrations and wanted to build on that success.”

This will be the fourth Global Scouse Day.
