Wirral Festival of Firsts is an international community arts festival with a difference, a festival that really does offer something for everyone and helps put Wirral on the map. This year’s festival, from 5 – 13 July 2014, coincides with two landmark events, offering special opportunities to show off our local talent and attractions on an international scale: the British Open Golf Championship at the Royal Liverpool, Hoylake (17 – 20 July) and the International Festival of Business, Merseyside (throughout June and July).
