This October the Liverpool Irish Festival will be bringing Liverpool and Ireland closer together using arts and culture.
Running over 10 days in October, the Festival is a charity and a cultural fixture in Liverpool’s calendar. The event takes part in national celebration day programmes and city events, as well as serve as active contributors to various networks, which help us collaborate in the sector and represent the community in equal measure.
In 2021, the team plan to begin work on the Liverpool Irish Famine Trail, an internationally significant sey of works and sites which traces Irish influence on the city and commemorates those lost to the Great Hunger.
The idea was to create a permanent, annual, event to celebrate the Irish contribution to Liverpool’s cultural identity and heritage. The Festival would include performance, participation, entertainment and education in Irish traditions, music, literature, theatre, and art and reflect their significance in defining Liverpool as a great European city. The ambition was that the Festival would develop to take its place among the world’s leading arts and music festivals.
