It’s time for our monthly round up of forthcoming events. As always, there’s a host of things happening all over the city and this is just a small selection. For more, check the Open Culture website here.
At the Bluecoat, a new exhibition of fascinating black and white images of Liverpool, taken in the 1970s by photographer Tricia Porter and rarely seen since, runs until 5 July. There’s an event with the artist on 18th June. Tickets are free but you need to book. Find out more here.
Also at the Bluecoat and at other venues across the city, Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival runs from 6th to 14th June. The festival has been running for many years now and is a real highlight in Liverpool’s events calendar. There’s always something new to discover. Details of all of the events in the programme can be found on the website.
FACT continues to run Silver Screen every Tuesday and Thursday – a brilliant and varied selection of films, with discounted ticket price and free refreshments. Personally, I would go for Al Pacino playing a washed up musician with a soundtrack of John Lennon classics in Danny Collins, but the 3D dinosaurs of Jurassic World, or Oscar nominated film about religious fundamentalism Timbuktu are also on offer during June.
Finally, who could resist a theatre adaptation of the brilliant Coen Brothers film The Hudsucker Proxy? Described as both a joyful romantic comedy and a timely take on corporate greed, it runs at the Playhouse from 5th to 27th June.
