Every year the Liverpool Irish Festival works with tens -if not hundreds- of artists, musicians and performers to bring audiences from Liverpool, the northwest, nationally and internationally a flavour of what Irish creativity like like and considers.
With work from across art forms, generations, class-systems and the diaspora, it entertains, enthralls, moves and challenges us. In 2019 we are using unique stories as the hook for every piece of programme and in 2020 we hopeit will advance this to look at how we exchange those stories – across time, distance and memory.
Capturing at least some of what we try and do, is this film which looks specifically at the evening programme and the atmosphere we evoke.
Filmed by LJMU film graduate David Partsch, this video gives a really good overview of what nights at the Liverpool irish Fetsival feel like. Give it a play to get afeel of what we do.
