Summer Sounds Music Programme – Strawberry Field

Strawberry Field, Beaconsfield Road, Liverpool, L25 6EJ

Summer Sounds Music Programme - Strawberry Field

Strawberry Field has been in the care of The Salvation Army since the 1930s as a place that supports vulnerable young people and a site of spirituality and inspiration. This legacy continues with The Salvation Army’s redevelopment of Strawberry Field to give young people with learning disabilities in Liverpool the chance to succeed and honour the site that inspired John Lennon.

 

Summer Sounds Music Programme

As a continuation of John Lennon’s legacy, Summer Sounds is inspired by the nostalgic echoes of Lennon’s past summers, where Salvation Army bands played at summer fetes in the famous gardens. Strawberry Field invites families and friends to relive these moments by pulling up their deckchairs and immersing themselves in a summer-long celebration of music at the iconic Strawberry Field Bandstand.

Strawberry Field has collaborated with several esteemed partners to curate a diverse music programme including Talentbanq, who are bringing the Black Deer Festival, Caffè Nero Presents and London and Liverpool Rising to Liverpool for the first time.

 

Throughout the summer, the Strawberry Field Bandstand will feature free events taking place every weekend, hosting some of the northwest’s finest brass bands, including the Liverpool Walton Salvation Army Brass Band, a beloved band from the days of John Lennon’s visits, as well as bands from Liverpool, Eagley, Blackburn and Haydock.

 

Alongside the famous brass bands, audiences can expect performances from string quartets and choirs such as the Hope Street Harmonies, an all-female a capella choir with a diverse repertoire; Penny Lane Jazz, a local quartet delivering a dynamic yet beguiling mixture of swing and Latin; and the Liverpool Harmonic Gospel Choir, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year and have performed with the likes of Nina Simone and Cliff Richard.

 

Please note that there is no seating in the garden. Feel free to bring your own chairs and picnic blankets. Food and drink will be available to purchase in the Imagine More café.
