Goodbye Winter, hello Spring - 7 days of fiery celebrations.
Renowned outdoor arts producers, Walk the Plank, who produced both the opening and closing celebrations for Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture Year in 2008, has announced its exciting return to the city with Feast of Fire at St George’s, a sensational, seven-day spring celebration during Easter 2018, that will transform St John’s Gardens into a magical land of fire, music and art.
Based on the North West European tradition of lighting bonfires over Easter, this new mini-festival experience is sure to set imaginations alight with an atmospheric feast for the senses. Visitors will be able to get up close and feel the heat of spectacular fire-fuelled sculptural installations as they promenade through the historic gardens. Add to this a live performance soundtrack and artisan, flaming food and drink, and you have a must-see spectacular during the Easter break.
Feast of Fire is part of Liverpool 2018, a thrilling year-long programme which celebrates the city’s culture and creativity a decade on from European Capital of Culture.
Coming to Liverpool the weekend before and the Easter weekend itself, the ticketed event in the enclosed space of the gardens will be available with various timed entry sessions each evening.
The first four early evening sessions, recommended for families, start from 6pm –7.30pm. The later night sessions, which will have different, uniquely themed performances each evening, will be from 8.30pm-10.30pm. Each theme will be curated by different local collaborators with details to be revealed early in the new year.
Feast of Fire at St George’s will take place across seven days:
- Friday, March 23
- Saturday March 24
- Sunday March 25
- Good Friday, March 30
- Easter Saturday, March 31
- Easter Sunday, April 1
- Easter Bank Holiday Monday, April 2
