Take Over festival returns

19th Sep 2022

We're thrilled to announce the return of Take Over our, FREE arts festival of events, exhibitions, films, participatory performances and more from Friday 28th October - Sunday 13th November (tickets available soon!).

Expect a playful arts programme in unexpected spaces and venues across St Helens and - for the first time - Knowsley (Liverpool City Region’s current Borough of Culture).

Hosted by Manchester-based live artist Lowri Evans, the festival is inspired by the autumnal season of Harvest, Halloween and Bonfire Night, and explores hospitality, ritual and gatherings.
