LIVERPOOL AND THE TITANIC FESTIVAL

Producer / Curator / Director

2012 marked the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic — a liner with an enduring relationship to its home port of Liverpool.

From the headquarters of its owners, to the homes of its musicians, the memory of the Titanic is part of the memory of the city itself.

The Theatre in the Rough Festival presented a 5-day festival of theatre, live music, art, authors' talks and an historical exhibition, all created locally, to commemorate the anniversary.

The festival included seven stage plays and seven audio plays, created by young people through workshops with Merseyside Maritime Museum. All were published as an anthology.

It took place at Old Christ Church, Waterloo, from 3 — 7 July, attracting over 1,500 visitors.

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England and the Unity Theatre Trust.
