Wirral Festival of Firsts

2020 dates TBC

Wirral Festival of Firsts is a community interest company, run for the benefit of the community.  We are planning to establish a charitable arm. Its primary purpose is to run the annual community arts festival founded by John Gorman in 2011. Since 2011 we have established a reputation for delivering an extensive, interesting and varied arts programme with limited resources and low overheads. We are 100% volunteer-run and received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2017 (Award ceremony 23 January 2018). We have received Arts Council of England funding support for several years.

Working with local partners, the Festival aims to:-
– celebrate the arts
– inspire creativity
– encourage participation by all
– showcase local talent
– bring outstanding performers to Wirral

In 2019, we plan to deliver three unmissable festive weekends
First Wirral Poetry Festival (10-12 May 2019)
Hoylake Street Festival and other events (5-7 July 2019)
West Kirby Arts and Crafts Fairs and other events (12-14 July 2019
