Final Week of Brouhaha 2007

This week the Brouhaha International Street Festival culminates into a spectacular finale that simply cannot be missed.

The Liverpool International Carnival, the largest in the region, will be dancing through the streets of Liverpool this Saturday, continuing the story of Liverpool’s participation in the transatlantic slave trade through the costume designs of award-winning carnival artist Ray Mahabir. The carnival will parade towards Toxteth’s Princes Park, where The World in Princes Park and Liverpool Mela will be kicking off with an afternoon of local, regional, national, and international performances. The day will finish with a headline performance from Aswad, one of the UK’s finest reggae acts.

Also this week there are performances in Williamson Square as part of Alive After Five, an evening involving a parade along Church Street and performances from international groups.

To round off the week, Wigan One World, a one-day festival of local and international performance work including children and young people’s arts workshops, will be impressing the crowds with a diverse range of talents from dance to musical acts.
