We are out of festival season at present and busy preparing #LIF2018, running 18-28 October 2018. Our theme for 2018 will be ‘migration’ underpinned by three key strands:

  • In:Visible Women – is a concept and platform within the Liverpool Irish Festival, generated by conversations with artists, academics, activists, audiences and communities about the role of women in Irish society and creativity – today and historically.
  • Family Days – a series of events and days designed for families to enjoy a range of activites that draw them close to the heart of Irish creative culture and expression
  • Nook and Cranny Spaces – take audiences to parts of the city they may not ordinarily venture to and moves the creative focus to independent venues. Often historic, brsitling with Irish heritage or supporting an Irish fellowship today, these are jewels within the crown of the Liverpool scene.

#LIF2017‘s listings are here along with the  full brochure, offering a sense of the type of programme we organise.
