Hope Street Feast returns for its 7th year this coming Sunday 16th September 2012 and promises another day of open air and indoor food, drink, music, theatre and events from 10.30am to 5.30pm.
For those of you who don’t know about Hope Street Feast (seriously, where’ve you been?) it’s the annual urban village fete of the Hope Street Quarter, celebrating the start of the cultural and academic year with a magical family-friendly blend of all the ingredients that characterise Hope Street’s special contribution to Liverpool life.
The foody side of the celebrations sees a vast street food market, fresh produce, fine food and drink, al fresco dining areas (fingers crossed for dry weather), pop-ups, and lots of lovely special offers. We always bring our own bag or small rucsac! As you’re browsing, look out for street theatre with this year’s theme Lost Games of Liverpool.
There’s a feast of music too, with two open air music stages, and plenty going on indoors.
And if all that wasn’t enough, the To Do Market returns to the Unity Theatre, another of the many great open days throughout the Quarter which includes dance workshops at Merseyside Dance Initiative, whilst Blackburne House also hosts an Arts and Crafts Fair, and an exhibition of Memories of Mr Seel’s Garden.

The organisers are expecting around 30,000 people, and given that the original Feast was partly inspired by European Car Free Day visitors are being asked to use public transport where possible. Travel, parking and accommodation info can be found here.
