Festival Opening Night 2016

Date: June 20, 2016 Category:

We must start this post telling everyone how pleased we were working with Liverpool’s newest bar venue – District House on Water Street, who collaborated with us on the Opening Night ceremony. It was a pleasure!

The Opening Night is always a very special event for us. It’s the moment when we finally start sharing the ideas and direction of the current year’s festival. Invitations are sent to all our friends, families, donors, organisations and all those who love Carnival to let them know that we’re back with another year of joyful festivities that will bring people together. We couldn’t have done it in a better place.

It was a lovely night. Our international groups performed for each other and the audience, giving us a preview of what was to be expected in the upcoming days.
