Audiences will be welcomed back to Liverpool theatres for a 10-day arts festival set to explore themes of communication and information.

The Angel Field Festival, organised by Liverpool Hope University, launches June 24 and runs to July 3.

Headline acts include Americana band Django Rhinestone, which features former Death in Vegas founder Steve Hellier on guitar, as well as a spectacular stage performance of The Ballad of Mulan, the story of the Chinese heroine that inspired Disney’s movie.

Centred on Hope’s Cornerstone and Capstone theatres, other acts include magician and performer Vincent Gambini, contemporary chamber music ensemble rarescale and Bite! Theatre’s Pucker Up, a political comedy show.

There will also be a performance of music from acclaimed Liverpool composer Stephen Pratt.
