We started the planning of the festival with One Fell Swoop, Jazamin Sinclair and Ixiod as well as our numerous other partner organisations and venues back in April 2017 and ops-managed 8 events over 14 days! These included the festival’s Art Exhibition at the Brink, the public celebration in Liverpool city centre, the Lunatic Fringe Poetry Slam and the inaugural Festival Finale. It’s fair to say that we enjoyed every minute and can’t wait to do it again next year – watch this space for dates!
