This year’s festival theme is ‘Strangers Transcending Borders’. 2022 marks many historical and cultural anniversaries — including the centenary of the Irish Civil War and the death of Michael Collins and the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday. In recognition of these milestones, this year’s festival invites creative provocations that reflect ideas of reconciliation, the removal of barriers and coming together as one. Here’s what’s on and when….

This programme of solo classical guitar music explores the ways in which we transcend borders through music. Featuring Eleanor Kelly — an award winning local classical guitarist and Liverpool Hope University graduate who has extensive experience as a performer, with recent engagements including Kings Place, London.
