SUNDAY 20 September 2009 10.30 – 17.00. Hope Street Feast 2009 Sponsored by Paramount Stewarding and Security, is the 4th blissful family-friendly Sunday street party in Liverpool’s Hope Street Quarter with music, theatre, dance, great food, drink and produce.
It’s CAR FREE DAY! Come by BUS (74, 75 80 80A, 180, 86) or come by BIKE – we hope to have some extra bicycle parking on site at Mount Street.
This year there are 3 music stages on the streets ~ Myrtle Street, Blackburne Place (LIPA stage), and Hardman Street (Guinness Liverpool Irish Festival Stage including the Ceili)
With open air dining areas and bars, free open days at the Unity and Everyman Theatres, the whole event is brilliantly animated by Hope Street Ltd’s theatrical antics: following on from last year’s “Market of Optimism,” this year’s theme is “The Big Nosh …”
Central to the event is the Open Day at the Phil. Vasily Petrenko will be conducting the RLPO in 3 free concerts, with other performances as part of the Liverpool Philharmonic open day including Seth Paris’s “West African music meets Lancashire Brass Band” extravaganza, and the West Everton Children’s Orchestra …
The farmers’ market with hot food stalls runs the length of Hope Street from LIPA to the Everyman, and expect some spectacular gastronomic delights from the finest eateries on the street ~ No 60, The Quarter, Host, Everyman Bistro, Rubato and the Side Door, to name a few.
Open air bar / dining areas are at Myrtle Street, outside the Everyman Bistro on Hope Street, and outside The Quarter on Falkner Street.
Liverpool Cathedral is open throughout the day, hosting the final day of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, whilst the Metropolitan Cathedral piazza hosts an art market.
Everything is free to enter, you just pay for what you choose to eat and drink …
