The Brouhaha International Street Festival is back for its 23rd year and this year will be ‘bigger, bolder and brighter than ever.’
That’s the claim from executive director Giles Agis who maintains that an explosion of culture, colour and sound like never seen before, will greet artists from across the globe as they descend on Liverpool.
Mr Agis said: “Liverpool City Centre will become a contagious zone as ‘Infecting the City’ (11th July 4pm-7pm) becomes airborn!
A global parade for a global City, with over 200 international performers will take centre stage and Liverpool’s world-renowned waterfront will taken over by the fever!”
On the following day, Carnival Parade 2014 (12th July 12pm -2 pm) will include more than a thousand citizens parading through the streets of the city centre with a concoction of carnival riddims being dished out before they reach ‘The World in Princes Park’ (12pm – 7pm).
The day includes three stages of local and international performance work, global foods and family arts workshops.
Carnival fever then moves on to the Beautiful North Festival (13th July 2014) followed by the ‘International Brunch’ (14th – 18th July 2014) with international performances in Williamson Square.
On the 18th July for one night only, a tribute to and celebration of Nelson Mandela’s birthday ‘Mandela Day’ with 200 hundred international artists on show will mark the end of the festival before Brouhaha embarks on a European tour for the remainder of 2014.
