Dancing In The Park

International Day of Dance in Birkenhead Park

As the grand finale to Birkenhead Park’s 175th anniversary year, we are delighted to be part of the great celebration coming to the park on Saturday 29th April 2023. The event takes place on the International Day of Dance, and features dance performances animated by Movema, music, and youth activities organised by HYPE Merseyside.

On this day, we’ll dance not only for the park’s 175th anniversary, but also what it represents for people. Attendees will have the privilege to see Movema’s Global Folk Dance project – a celebration of stick dances from Ukraine, India and England, as well as an exciting, thought-provoking & spectacular piece Taking Flight based on stories of migration.
