Following the success of their inaugural event in 2020 and hot on the heels of a boutique version earlier this year, Liverpool Theatre Festival returns to St Luke’s Bombed Out Church in September. The 12-day event features a smorgasbord of 13 performances to animate your late summers evenings.

Closing the festival with two performances on Sunday 12th September is the George Harrison bio Something About George. The production includes songs from the Beatle’s peerless solo output as well as his work with the Fab Four and hilarious supergroup The Travelling Wilburys.

Other highlights from the festival include An Evening Without Kate Bush where acclaimed performer Sarah-Louise Young will take on the magnificent oeuvre of everyone’s favourite 80s enigma. After sell-out performances at Edinburgh Fridge and on stages at home in Liverpool, LTF brings Broken Biscuits back to tell the story of best friends Rita and Maggie and their tumultuous relationship. The stage version of The Last Five Years features Hollyoaks actor Helen Noble and the West End’s Graham Tudor for a production of what’s becoming a modern classic.

There is also stand-up from Laughterhouse Comedy, opera from Absolute Opera and theatre for the littl’ans, all in the historic surrounds of the Bomby.
