'Intriguing, complex, baffling, enthralling, dark, dangerous, playful. Just go!' Matthew Linley (Artistic Director Unity Theatre, Liverpool)
'Amazing performance. A welcoming, playful and truly international cast. And then it got dark... Loved it.' Adrian Turrell-Watts (Independent Producer)
'Utterly brilliant. Strange, confusing, ambiguous, thought-provoking, but most of all gripping.' Alex Duffy (The State of the Arts)

Blakemere's Christmas Woodland
This was a brand new family event, that brought together over 25 years of Hope Street Ltd's experience in creating spectacular and magical shows. Commissioned by Cheshire Productions Ltd, this was a promenade performance through a forest, with audiences meeting a variety of characters before delivering their letters to Father Christmas.
We have been overwhelmed by the incredible response from the public; comments will be posted soon. If you missed this magical adventure last year, fear not, the magic will return in 2016!

As part of the Cunard Line's 175th birthday celebrations, and to mark the occasion for the City of Liverpool, Hope Street collaborated with The Colour Project, creating a show for over 80,000 visitors, over the course of three nights. Always looking to the future and confident of its past, the essence of Liverpool was boldly brought to life to celebrate the city and its historic links with the Cunard Line. Three iconic buildings along the Pier Head, collectively known as The Three Graces, were transformed into a video-mapped canvas to perform “The Amazing Graces”.
The show was developed in consultation with the people of Liverpool, with Hope Street carrying out local research that contributed to the overall narrative, and engaging with just under 1,000 local people to produce the section "Sea of Faces".
The video featured a "Sea of Faces" of the people that make up the rich cultural heritage of Liverpool, along with scenes from Cunard’s vast history. The 25-minute spectacle, included a specially commissioned score by composer Pete M Wyer.
