The Angel Field Festival is a new addition to Liverpool’s cultural calendar - an international, combined arts festival situated in the Everton district of Liverpool which sets out to delight, challenge, beguile and thrill with its content and events. It will feature music, theatre, dance, film, visual art, story-telling from around the world as well as that found much closer to home. We offer a hearty welcome to our audiences as we seek to provide excellent arts for all - for our mind, bodies and spirit.
Liverpool Hope University’s Angel Field Festival builds upon the rich tradition of the Cornerstone Festival and will run from 22nd – 30th March 2019, with our newly renovated Creative Campus as its hub and its highly-commended Angel Field Garden at its heart; its programming will also reach out across the historic, cultural city of Liverpool through collaboration with our many cultural partners.
2019 marks the 50th year since the first moon-landing; 30 years since the demolition of the Berlin Wall, 30 years since the end of the Ceausescu regime in Romania, 100 years since the Bauhaus and, from March 2019 of course, the commencement of Brexit. These historic events will inform some of the shape of the festival’s content.
Performances and events will feature collaborations with Tate Liverpool, FACT, National Museums Liverpool, RLPO, Milapfest, IMMIX Ensemble, Swingshift Big Band and The European Opera Centre, alongside performances from students and alumni of Liverpool Hope University.
