The partnership with FOCUS Wales to celebrate Birkenhead’s unique connection to Welsh culture, cycling tours of Wirral’s Viking past, walking tours of the historic Priory and docklands, exhibitions from the LOOK Photo Biennial and Toucan Tango, celebrations of the local music scene, and live soundtracked meditative yoga are just some of the diverse daytime events open to festival goers.

Headline performances at Birkenhead Town Hall will be Bill Ryder-Jones (Friday 23rd August) and Anna Calvi (Saturday 24th August).
