You are cordially invited to join us in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, for the 16th Biennial Liverpool International Theatre Festival, taking place October 17-20, 2024!

Once again, we’ll welcome the world to the Astor Theatre stage and our Town Hall Arts and Culture Centre, with a lineup of one-act plays offering something for every theatrical appetite.

Get a glimpse of our 2022 festival by reading the rundown of the 10 plays from our last festival.

Our four-day festival showcases outstanding amateur theatre from across North America and around the world. Previous participants from Japan, Belgium, Ireland, Georgia, Italy, Russia, Denmark, Germany and many other countries, sing the praises of their experience in Liverpool.

While in Liverpool, you’ll delight in our world-renowned Nova Scotia hospitality! From our performances, Coffee Critiques, workshops, to our Festival Club, we offer a social and performance experience that is second to none. Check out our “About the Area” link for information on local accommodations and tourist attractions. Autumn is a beautiful time to visit Liverpool.

Join us as Liverpool opens its doors to the world!
