Threshold Festival 2012 at the Baltic Triangle

Written by The Reader, 6th February 2012

The Threshold Festival, Liverpool's newest and most innovative celebration of the arts, returns for 2012 on Friday 10th-Sunday 12th February with a schedule packed to the brim with bands, big art installations and a vast range of performances that can't be pigeon-holed.

Having started in great style last year, this year's festival looks to be even bigger -  in more ways than one. Threshold 2012 won't be held under one roof but several, taking over the entirety of Liverpool's Baltic Triangle for a whole weekend, in venues including Camp and Furnace, the Blade Factory, the New Picket, Elevator, the Nordic Church, the Lantern Theatre and the Brewery Tap.

Curated as a collaboration between promoters Under The Influence and the Contemporary Urban Centre (unfortunately recently  closed in physical form but very much still ongoing in spirit), Threshold has been a champion of arts at grassroots level; the ethos at its heart being to engage with the arts, music and performance promoters, providing them with a platform to create and explore.

Amongst the highlights of a bumper line-up is a Performing Shakespeare workshop by Max Rubin (Lodestar, Liverpool Shakespeare Festival) and Script In Hand Theatre at the Lantern Theatre and a Philosophy in Pubs discussion of Culture of Capital at The Brewery Tap.

One day tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday cost £10 each, with Weekend tickets costing £25. All tickets are available from or via the Threshold Facebook page . Full schedules and line-ups can be found on the website, through Twitter and Tumblr.
