Liberty FestivalHeld at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the Liberty Festival, London's annual disability rights festival, presents an exciting programme of deaf and disability arts and performances. The free festival, which is part of the National Paralympic Day, includes performances by Irish-born and London based singer-songwriter Joan Coffey, multi-instrumentalist, entertainer and story teller Hassan Eraji, and a fantastic finale by Mbongwana Star, a 7 piece band from Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo who recently played at Womad. As well as street theatre, dance and live music there are film screenings, installations and children's activities. Whether you want to take part, educate your kids about disabled arts, or just enjoy some music and comedy in the sunshine, this is an excellent piece of free entertainment.

About Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

A year after the 2012 London Olympic Games, the former Olympic Park re-opened as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - a site of over 250 acres of beautifully landscaped open space and 6.5 km of waterways. The opening of the north park on Saturday 27th July 2013 was the first phase of transforming the Olympic Park and the rest of the 560 acre park opened in spring 2014.
