There's a chill in the air and leaves on the ground - winter is coming and with it some amazing events for everyone to enjoy this Christmas in Liverpool. Whether you want to go for a drink with friends, take the kids on a day out or do something to get you in the festive spirit - there are loads of things to do throughout the winter months. But with less than 100 days until Christmas, you'll have to be quick - a lot of them book up fast so you'll have to get your tickets soon.
The Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival returns to the Pier Head this winter - and it's bigger and better. There will be a super-sized triple-lane ice slide, larger ice rink, giant ferris wheel and 50 traditional German market stalls creating Liverpool ’s biggest Christmas market.
Families are in for a festive treat this Christmas as Cheshire Reindeer Lodge opens once more for another magical year. Only 20 families are allocated tickets per entry time so there are no long queues for their Santa's Grotto or the other Christmas attractions with visits lasting around an hour and a half. You can see Santa and his herd of reindeers - all 22 of them - and you can even get up close to feed them with plenty of opportunities to have your photos taken with these majestic creatures.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
