Events & Public Performances

Sweeney Todd Event


Theatre, dance and music performances

At LIPA we put on over 30 public performances each year, so if you live in Liverpool or are visiting the city, why not come along and see the next generation of young talent. Our productions often gain critical acclaim in The Liverpool Echo.

Set in a fabulous location with first-class facilities, the productions showcase the talents of all types of students at LIPA – actors, dancers, musicians, community drama facilitators, technicians, managers and designers.

From classic dramas, issue-based contemporary plays, popular musical theatre and inspiring dance performances to pop, rock and jazz concerts, LIPA has something for everyone.

Open Days LIPA Guided Tours for 2017 entry

We will be holding a specialist Theatre and Performance Design and Technology open day in December. Details of this event will be publicised here very soon.

We held six large-scale Open Days for 2017 entry in June, July and early October. For those that were unable to attend these, we are holding smaller-scale guided tours for all degree courses in October and November, these events offer you the chance to:

  • attend welcome talks hosted by staff from the Marketing and Student Recruitment team and some of our current or recent graduates
  • go on a tour of the building with a current student or recent graduate and hear first-hand about their experiences of studying here
  • visit our Admissions stand to find out more about our admissions process, student finances and accommodation options
