Overview

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to The Cornerstone Festival, 2018 - The Angel Field.

With the festival well established and becoming more popular each year, we have given a lot of thought this year to what defines it, to what identifies it. Our festival venues, The Capstone Theatre and our Cornerstone Warehouse Theatre, surround the inspirational garden called the Angel Field, a space that is at the heart of creative production and collaboration at our beautiful Creative Campus - a cultural garden, a place of cross-pollination and collaboration between artists, writers, poets and performers.

This year we have created a conversation out of the programme, celebrating International Women's Day and supporting emerging artists with a programme of early evening events at 5pm (see website for details). Evening events explore themes such as Brexit, immigration and race and gender equality, through performances that often imaginatively combine different disciplines such as film, music, theatre, contemporary dance and the visual arts in unusual and innovative ways.

Liverpool is a culturally unique city, with a history built upon welcoming the traveller, the newcomer and the migrant. In this spirit, with our wonderful students, we welcome the public and our artists to our garden of Liverpool, thanking too our sponsors for helping us to realise another inspirational festival.

Chair of the Festival Committee
