Birkenhead, Wirral

“Take me somewhere I'm not likely to forget.
Two singles to Birkenhead”

Bill Ryder-Jones

Birkenhead. A small shipbuilding town on the banks of the River Mersey, nestled on a strip of land called the Wirral, tucked between Liverpool and North Wales.  A forgotten town, with an overlooked musical heritage? Or tomorrow’s cultural playground with a burgeoning DIY community? 
 
Future Yard will re-imagine unique spaces and venues in Birkenhead for a two-day, multi-venue festival of  internationally significant contemporary new music. ANNA CALVI and BILL RYDER-JONES in the Victorian civic splendour of Birkenhead Town Hall; FOREST SWORDS Presents...PYLON - a newly commissioned sound and performance installation set within the 850-year-old Birkenhead Priory; the groundbreaking new arts space and mental health support hub Bloom Building; and the local scene cornerstone Gallagher’s. 
 
The people of Birkenhead populated the world’s oceans with great liners. They also flooded the world’s radio waves and stages with some of the most fabulous and gloriously eccentric music you’ve heard; Half Man Half Biscuit, Elvis Costello, Bill Ryder-Jones, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, The Coral, Forest Swords, Evian Christ, Hooton Tennis Club, Zuzu, By The Sea, Seal Cub Clubbing Club, Boo Radleys, we could go on. John Peel - our most famous Wirral son - shaped the music landscape as we all know it today. 
 
But Birkenhead is the town that time forgot, scarred from decades of disillusionment. Now is the time to think about music differently; as a transformative opportunity.
 
Weekend wristbands cost just £44.00 allowing access to all shows and venues across Future Yard Festival on 23rd and 24th August. Day tickets are now available priced at £20.00 for Friday 23rd and £25.00 for Saturday 24th. Future Yard will be welcoming:
