SURREAL masquerade ball with a carnival twist Krewe Liverpool 2020 - The Mardi Gras Experience is guaranteed to blow your mind.

The brainchild of Mellowtone's Dave McTague and The Kazimier's Laura Brownhill, this music, dance and costume extravaganza will be heading to the beautiful setting that is Sefton Park's Palm House on Friday, February 7, 2020.

An ode to New Orleans and crazy big jazz outfits, Krewe Liverpool will welcome Frog & Henry - a collective bringing good ole dance music from 100 years ago.

Beginning as street performers in 2013 on the streets of the Big Easy, the collective is is an international affair with members from across the globe, boasting reinvention of the world's only foot operated Tuba Machine - allowing one person to play the tuba and banjo simultaneously.

A welcomed familiar face will be Liverpool's homegrown master of ceremonies Laird Howard Ashley Storey.

Also known as Howard Be Thy name is an icon of the city's boho scene and spent time as ring master of the Magnet's burlesque subterranean circus plus an ever evolving time lord within the much-loved and sadly departed Kazimier.

Local art and dance organisations will also join in with the celebrations and more acts are set to be revealed over the next couple of months.

Interested? Then you'll have to get on your swinging glad rags, don your surrealist and ethical fashion or go all out and create your own Krewe costume.

Tickets are £15 plus booking fee via
