Well, as we say in Bootle, that was boss!
Local emerging talent performing alongside major artists like Hue & Cry, Tommy Scott of SPACE & Bootle’s own The Real People brought the canal-side alive with the sound of great music & laughter.
Bootle’s first major music festival was a great success and a real testament to working in partnership by bringing together the whole neighbourhood including community, public & private sector organisations, and most importantly, the wonderful people of Bootle and beyond!

The sun shone, the rain fell, thousands came for a real Bootle-style shindig and all was good… so good, we’re doing it all again, bigger and better on 6th/7th July 2019….so watch this space!


Some of your words:

“In the 30+ years I’ve been around this area I never thought the day would come that I would see an event like that bring the community together. It was an absolute joy to be a part of. You should all be very proud of yourselves!”
Matthew Dodgson, Director, ICS, Liverpool – Festival Sponsor
