The two-day festival is set in an atmosphere of decadent Victoriana carnival, where 12,500 fans can enjoy an abundance of entertainment throughout the whole festival site while indulging in the stunning Victorian backdrop of the World Museum, City Library and St. George’s Hall and Gardens – all within a few hundred yards walk of the main Lime Street train station.
HOPE & GLORY is a stylish yet artistically subversive boutique festival offering an edgy, sophisticated and surreal experience – think Charles Darwin meets Tim Burton.
Offering more than just an incredible roster of music, HOPE & GLORY also features an abundance of side-shows across the site with Spoken Word performances taking place at ‘Dr. Johnston’s Clandestine Gathering’ as well as top class magic, comedy and acoustic acts at the ‘Soapbox’. It also caters for the whole family with ‘Kaleidoscope Corner’, a games and competitions area specifically designed for adults plus ‘Darwin’s Little Darlings’ for the kids.
Amongst the entertainment are a collection of culinary delights and adult-only bars scattered around the site, including ‘Mother’s Ruin’ gin palace and ‘Prince Albert’s Little Secret’ cocktail bar – along with phone charging facilities and of course the ‘Longjohns & Bloomers’ toilets.
HOPE & GLORY is an exciting addition to the UK’s festival scene, providing a quirky and fun weekend for all the family to watch, enjoy and discover some of the best talent in music and art, all within a unique and attractive location.
