We haven’t got a feature to offer you this weekend so we thought we’d tell you all about the Hope Street Feast instead.
The 5th urban village fete of the Hope Street Quarter is taking place on Sunday 19th September between 10.30am and 5.00pm.
As always, there’s lots to see, do, eat, drink, experience, and buy. In addition to open days at Blackburn House, the Everyman Theatre, and The Phil, there’s also a selection of craft and farmers markets, with hot food being served in venues and on the street.
There is the Myrtle Street music stage, and the LIPA stage on Mount Street, in addition to gigs in venues throughout the length of Hope Street. Musical performances on the day include:-
the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Timothy Henty
the very wonderful voice of Najma Akhtar with Gary Lucas on guitar (yes, THE Gary Lucas of Beefheart’s Magic Band and of Jeff Buckley albums)
Realword Records’ latest gem Syriana, including a live soundtrack to the films of Nico Piazza
A sampler session for THE IRISH SEA SESSIONS which are convening later in the autumn, including Ian Prowse, Terry Coyne, Eimar McGowan
The full programme will be available on the day, priced £1. This includes entry to a prize draw to win a PASSPORT TO HOPE STREET which includes …
A night’s bed and breakfast for 2 at Hope Street Hotel
Dinner for 2 at No. 60 Hope Street
Dinner for 2 at The Side Door

It’s set to be another amazing day, and you’d be a fool to miss it!
