Family Day

Family Day 27Oct

Celebrate the Liverpool Irish Festival – with family and friends – in a day incorporating music, talks and activities for everyone to enjoy, across the day.

Delivered in partnership with National Museums Liverpool, with contributions from Liverpool Comhaltas, various artists and organisations, this is a true highlight of the festival, where culture sharing, enjoyment and conviviality are at the centre of all we do.

With craft activities, plays, monologues, music and dance; tours of Irish artefacts; talks and Irish language drop ins; storytelling and a raft of fun things to engage in across the Museum, the day is fun, entertaining and informative.

With something for everyone, from niche to popular, this is a core event we hope you will share with us. Do check our events pages for a full listing of the day but expect:

-a Migration Panel discussing the influence of Irish migration on Liverpool, Ireland and the world. Hear from migration experts Dr Johanne Devlin Trew, Dr Gillian O’Brien and Greg Quiery, chaired by Prof Mary Hickman (also see Mary’s essay on Migration in this year’s brochure)
– ensign making workshops
-traditional music
-Liverbird origami challenge
-and much more besides.

The Family Day forms part of a wider Family Days programme, including the Family Céilí at the Liverpool Irish Centre (28 Oct, see listing).

This event is held in partnership with National Museums Liverpool and sponsored by Tourism Ireland.
