Between Saturday 11 June and Sunday 3 July 2016, Liverpool’s waterfront will be lined with beach huts which celebrate British culture, new technology and art as part of the International Festival for Business 2016.
Curated by arts organisation Metal, the Beach Huts project will animate the International Festival of Business site across a three week period.
Artists, makers, poets, performers and creative entrepreneurs will occupy the beach huts creating temporary stations for live music, workshops, performances and conversations throughout the festival.
There will be a trail of 20 unique huts starting at the Exhibition Centre, through the Albert Dock and onto the main thoroughfare of the Strand (“strand” being the old English word for beach).
This location will attract festival delegates and the general public to find out more about what Liverpool and the North’s creative industries have to offer. Each cluster of Beach Huts will contain a selection of new commissions some of which will showcase the work of creative organisations from the Northern Powerhouse cities of Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and Hull.
Days: Open Monday- Friday 12.00pm- 7.00pm and Saturday-Sunday 10.00am-4.00pm
