Angel Field Festival returns to Liverpool Hope for 2024
Liverpool Hope’s Angel Field Festival returns to the university’s Creative Campus in Everton this spring.
The multi-disciplinary arts festival takes place from March 6-16 with a series of events held in the Capstone Theatre and Cornerstone building in Shaw Street.
Expect a line-up of art, theatre, film, workshops, music, magic, mythology and more over the 11-day festival.
It opens on March 6 with Teatro Pomodoro’s Crab Tragedy, a topsy-turvy, heroic misadventure and retelling of the myths of ancient Greece for children and families. Ancient myths collide in an imaginative re-telling of the journey to Ithaca and the gods of ancient Greece. The show is in association with Theatre Porto and the Unity.
Wild Visions, Untamed Myth – created by storytellers Katy Corkwell and Lucy Lill – puts women squarely centre stage on March 7.
Join them as they go hunting in the wild places and raking through the ashes of a fallen city to bring you epic tales of women taking their power whatever the consequences.
Music includes Roberto Fabbriciani’s A Tribute to Luigi Nono and Florence Acousmatic Music, both on March 8, Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan (WRNTDP) – the stage name of Gordon Chapman-Fox - on March 13, The Jive Aces on March 14 and Hope Metropolitan Orchestra’s Italian Journey on March 16.

And free art exhibition will also take place at the Cornerstone Gallery from February 8 to March 22, featuring work from abstract artist Michael Stubbs. On March 12 there will be a private viewing and artist talk.
