Three Festivals of Tall Ships Regatta Liverpool: PARADE OF SONG

Be Part of a Nautical Musical Adventure!

Monday 28 May 11am – 1.30pm, Albert Dock, Pier Head and Liverpool Waterfront and 11am – 2.30pm, Wirral Waterfront and New Brighton

Ahoy there! All aboard the good ship sing song! Be a part of a musical nautical adventure!

As part of the Three Festival of Tall Ships Regatta Liverpool, we are looking for local musicians and performers of all ages and experience, to take part in the PARADE OF SONG on Monday 28 May performing at Albert Dock, Pier Head and Waterfront (Liverpool and Wirral) and New Brighton.

The PARADE OF SONG is an opportunity for hundreds of musicians and performers to come together as part of the Tall Ships Regatta Parade of Sail.  This exciting celebration will take place on both sides of the river as we wave farewell to the magnificent vessels and their crews.

If you are part of a brass band, a choir group, a street performer, hula-hooper, busker, dancer or a solo artist we want to hear from you to be a part of a mass participation event! Musicians and performers are requested to take inspiration from Liverpool, Dublin or Bordeaux, host ports for the Regatta, and the mighty River Mersey. So if you are a lover of the Beatles or Elvis Costello, a fan of Thin Lizzy or a follower of Noir Désir, have a passion for scouse spoken word, perform Irish folk dancing or recite French poetry we want to hear from you!

 

What they’ll need to know:

·         Name of act

·         Which Instruments / vocals / art form you would like to perform

·         Playlist/programme

·         How many members of your group would be performing

·         Which side of the river you would like to perform

 

You must be over 16 years old if not participating as part of a supervised group, under 16yrs can still perform but must apply and attend as part of a supervised group e.g. Scouts, Cadets, Youth Orchestra, family group etc.

You will need to be completely self-sufficient – i.e. there is no power or technical support for your act.
