Brouhaha 2016 kickstarts 14 days of carnivals and colour
The Brouhaha International Festival launched last night at the brand new and stunning District House on Water Street.
More than a dozen countries around the globe were represented with more than 250 performers taking part, who will also be participating with thousands of fellow performers in Saturday’s parade along a new route.
Giles Agis, executive director of the Brouhaha International Festival explained: “We are fiercely community-oriented and also want to spread our message to both indigenous businesses in the city and the wider general public of Liverpool. Thanks to both the Arts Council and Liverpool City Council, we have been enabled to do this on Saturday and look forward to parading from Bold Street and then eventually on towards Princes Avenue, our more traditional route.”
