Bold Street Festival

The street that Boldly goes its own way has been holding its annual party

Published on September 29th 2010.

Bold Street Festival

IT'S the street that says ya boo sucks to the monsters of the retail world and proudly boasts the city's highest concentration of independent shops. OK, for every News from Nowhere and Resurrection, there's going to be a Linen Warehouse, but still.

And, to celebrate its unique place in Liverpool life, Bold Street staged a day of fun and frivolities on Sunday.

Drummers drummed, dancers danced, and Liverpool music demi-legend Ian McNabb performed a medley of Beatles tunes atop a makeshift stage in the third Bold Street Festival.

Other goings-on included a mass outbreak of pavement artistry and an assault on the record for the world's smallest nightclub which comprises a box with a record deck in it, some dry ice and gyrating room for two. There was also steady supply of street food courtesy of Yums, Mattas and others.

The message: Don't forget Bold Street. The place for all your brown rice, radical book and duvet cover needs.

The first 'Bold Street Festival' was in about 1992 or 1993 and it was real let-down after the lavish publicity promising dancing fountains, lion dancers and all manner of spectacles.

All that actually happened was Jayne Casey filled the Lord Mayor's glass with champagne at the St. Luke's Place end.

And that was it.
