Cornerstone Arts Festival 2007


The seventh annual Cornerstone Arts Festival opens on Tuesday November 20 2007. It gets better every year and deserves far more attention. Look at the impressive line up below and check out full details on the website or in the brochure.

The festival is based at Liverpool Hope University’s Deanery of Arts &
Humanities city centre campus on Haigh Street in the stunningly refurbished Cornerstone building.

A special focus of the Festival is the presentation of newly created work in the fields of music, dance, theatre, writing, comedy and visual arts and this nearly three-week celebration of creativity brings together national and international practitioners, young artists, students and members of the local community.

This year’s programme includes themes centred around the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade; there’s a student-produced new work (Six out of Ten), a concert of music and a concert of music and dance by the River Niger Orchestra which centres on themes of slavery, and we are delighted to welcome the Hull Truck Theatre Co. to Liverpool with John Godber’s new play SOLD.

Liverpool Hope’s large-scale higher education partnership with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic is represented by a number of performances and workshop events and we are particularly pleased to be hosting the RLPO Ensemble 10/10’s Tenth Anniversary Concert which will be subsequently broadcast by BBC Radio 3.
