Liverpool Theatre Festival brings its third edition of live open air theatre back to the city this autumn. Taking over the atmospheric St Luke’s Bombed Out Church, the brilliant festival features musical theatre, drama, comedy, cabaret, opera and children’s shows.

Live open air theatre comes back to Liverpool this autumn.

Created by theatre producer Bill Elms, the first Liverpool Theatre Festival took place in 2020 and was set up as a lifeline for Liverpool’s live arts and creative sector following the devastation of the coronavirus pandemic. Presented in the apt surroundings of the Bombed Out Church – hit during the Liverpool Blitz of 1941 – the symbolic setting acts as a reminder of challenging times and a community’s strength to pull through.

So what can we expect from the festival for 2022? Well, in previous years we’ve seen an exciting and eclectic outdoor programme featuring established theatre companies and artists, alongside emerging musical stars, comedy nights, festival premieres and family shows.
