The reputation of Hoylake as an Hub of the Arts is growing rapidly. Home to painters, sculptors, poets, musicians and performers, many of whom work at a national and international level, this 'St Ives of the North' is making its mark.

The popular Festival of Firsts, initiated by local celebrity John Gorman, goes from strength to strength.

The Open Studio tours established by Micheline Robinson bring people from far afield to visit many of the local artists studios and see them at work.

Music and Poetry can be heard resonating from clubs, bars and churches; the renowned Wirral Ukelele Orchestra rehearse and perform in Hoylake regularly; and we are proud to be the home of many successful musicians including The Coral, OMD and The Last Shadow Puppets. The Oxjam festival sees the whole town jumping with exciting new talent.

And if you're wanting to buy some of this work... pop into the quirky Seagrass Studios.

A creative community that is buzzing, bursting with ideas, a place where the arts are the key to sustainable regeneration.
