BOLD ST is a bit of a world on a street, with its international markets and restaurants. Who doesn't feel like limbo dancing into News From Nowhere with a cucumber and doing a Ken Dodd and shouting "The martians have landed!"?
This Sunday it capitalises on its globalness with One World Festival Liverpool. It seems Bold Street Festival is no more.
Instead, the street will feature two stages either end of the street with artists performing at both throughout the day. In addition there will be a children’s area focusing on circus skills, run by the Black-E, as well as walkabouts and impromptu performances.
Big Wow – A Liverpool/Australian group bringing Austrangels – beautifully crafted Angel wings adorn these loving creatures complete with Aussie hats and accents. Unlike the Angels of Doctor Who, they go round the public checking that everyone is ok.
Black Eagles – Tanzanian acrobats performing to African and Caribbean music, a mixture of highly complex acrobatics and dances.
Café con Leche – A Latin/Cuban Ensemble performing music from Latin American and the Caribbean.
Curtis Watt – Acclaimed Liverpool performance poet.
Cusan Theatre Company – Children’s walkabout and street theatre performances from Colombian theatre.
Flamenco Liverpool – Wonderful Flamenco and Bulerias culture in Liverpool.
Fools Rush In – French/Spanish street performers who take cycling to a new dimension!
Japanese Troupe – A Japanese dance company performing traditional Japanese dances.
La Bomba – Women’s Drum Troupe from Merseyside, playing Candombe and Bombo Drums from Uruguay, Chile and Portugal.
The Bouncers – 12 foot high ‘ friendly’ bouncers will be patrolling the street pointing people in the right direction.
There will also be performances from Liverpool’s Irish, Chinese, Caribbean and West African communities.
The FREE festival will begin with Bold Street’s traditional Clean Sweep at 11.30am. Performances will continue till 6pm.
And look out for fab offers and promotions from the street’s store

Trust Chief Executive Dr Liz Mear said: “The Walton Centre is the only trust in the UK specialising in neurology, neurosurgery and pain services and the day offers a rare chance to go behind the scenes and meet some of our dedicated staff.

There’s fun for all the family with a poetry recital and creative writing sessions from legendary Liverpool wordsmith Levi Tafari – a former patient – a children’s entertainer and Fazmatazz choir offering a musical accompaniment to the afternoon.
