Mandela Freedom Festival

Venue Princes Park
Admission Free
Start Time 12:30
End Time 17:30

A free festival will take place in Liverpool later this month to celebrate the visit of Nelson Mandela’s family to the city as a new memorial to the revolutionary leader in Princes Park nears completion.

The event is part of a week-long celebration being organised by Toxteth-based charity Mandela8 which commissioned the official memorial.

The afternoon festival – taking place on Saturday 23rd July from 12:30pm until 5:30pm – has been curated by Africa Oyé who recently celebrated their 30th anniversary with their own milestone festival just last month.

The musical offering promises ‘live performances from the best of South Africa and Liverpool talent’ with headline slots from international stars, BCUC and Nkulee Dube. Merseyside will be well represented by Ni Maxine, Sense of Sound Choir, AMBA, Staged Kaos and Stuart B.

The festival will also feature a range of traders selling food, drinks, arts and crafts, as well as free family workshops from the likes of Movema, LFC’s Open Goals Project, Katumba, LUSH, North West Cancer Research and Scouse Flowerhouse and much more.

The Mandela Freedom Festival will take place on Saturday 23rd July 2022 from 12:30pm until 5:30pm. Entrance is free and you do not need a ticket.
