THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 26TH JULY 2015
Held 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.
