One musical May
Liverpool ONE hosts free music events on both May Bank Holidays
Visitors to Liverpool ONE will be spoilt for choice over both May Bank Holidays when the retail destination hosts free musical performances on Chavasse Park.
From 4-6 May Liverpool ONE will showcase a line-up of artists fresh from appearing at the landmark annual music festival and conference, Sound City.
Highlights of Sound City at Liverpool ONE include MOBO award winning R&B star Esco Williams, rapper and singer/songwriter KOF and The Tea Street Band who have just returned from supporting iconic Manchester rock band The Inspiral Carpets.
Also performing during the three-day music event will be local acts such as Silent Sleep, The Shadow Theatre and Johnny Sands as well as unconventional performances from acts such as 10-piece ukulele band, The Splintered Ukes.
As well as the musical performances, the legendary John Peel World Cup will take place on 4 May on Chavasse Park, bringing together the best of Liverpool Sound City - music and football.
From 26-27 May, Chavasse Park will come alive with the sound of orchestral music with Proms in the Park.
Forming part of the city-wide commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic, Proms in the Park features performances from bands and orchestras from across the North West. Talented musicians from Sefton, St Helens and Wirral will play music for every taste. From the Harry Potter theme tune to instrumentals from hit musical Les Miserables there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
Donna Howitt, Marketing Director at Liverpool ONE said: “Both Bank Holiday weekends at Liverpool ONE are not to be missed. From traditional proms music to contemporary artists our music events are for music lovers of all ages and tastes. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to enjoy performances from some of the most talented musicians in the region for free in the heart of the city.”
