Free Foody Family Fun – Saturday Mar 25th

A FABULOUS free family event this weekend celebrates the diversity of Liverpool’s food culture.

Community groups all over Merseyside are preparing for a spectacular event that will take place at the Palm House in Sefton Park on Saturday 25th March. The performance starts at 2.30pm, is free and there is no need to book in advance. Visitors will see giant inflatable plants and dances from all over the globe. They’ll hear music from around the world played on kitchen utensils, not to mention a gig by Urban Strawberry Lunch.

Designers, musicians, dancers and drama workshop leaders from the Hope Street project have been working with over 200 people to produce short performances based on foods, culture and histories from around the world. The groups have also been working with the National Museums Liverpool to research where the food that we eat comes from.

Peter Ward from Hope Street said: “After this visual and aural feast, you will then be invited to sample the food prepared by the 15 groups involved in the event. We’re looking forward to all getting together to showcase our work to the public. Fingers crossed for a sunny day!”

This event is part of Hope Street’s exciting spring programme and is funded by the Liverpool Culture Company, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Knowsley Youth Service and Arts Council England. Participating groups: Al Ghazali Multi-Cultural Centre, St Silas School, Bronte Youth Club, Marybone Youth Club, Crown Street Resource Centre, Knowsley Youth & Play, Hope Street Project, Stockton Wood Primary, Wirral Youth Theatre, Unity Youth Theatre, Edge Hill Youth Club, David Lewis Youth Club, Speke Youth Theatre, Granby Somalian Women’s Association, St Anthony’s of Padua Primary School.
