The board of the Liverpool Culture Company is set to change following the cancellation of much of the Mathew Street Festival last month.
Outdoor stages at the Mathew Street music festival were cancelled
Plans for the outdoor stages were abandoned two weeks before the event amid safety concerns.
Following a crisis meeting on Tuesday, a reshuffle is now expected which will see Brian Grey, from the North West Development Agency, become chairman.
Liverpool City Council Leader Warren Bradley will be his deputy.
There will be up to six other members, who will all be hands on and regularly in the culture company offices.
These will include current chairman Professor Drummond Bone.
Brookside creator Phil Redmond is to lead an artistic advisory group, which it is hoped will help include existing arts organisations in the Capital of Culture celebrations.
