Outside the Everyman
Watch the Everyman transform through a kaleidoscope of colours as the iconic exterior of the theatre lights up for Light Night.


Everyman Box Office
The Everyman has been a part of Liverpool’s cultural transformation since its early days as Hope Hall in 1837, to the Stirling Prize-winning venue that sits at the top of Hope Street today. Take a look back at the past and ahead to the future with a unique look into the theatre’s archives, provided by LJMU.


Street Café
Join the Everyman and LJMU libraries for an exhibition looking at the history of black music in Liverpool. With archives from the 1840s to the present day, the evening will showcase the influence of black music in Liverpool on popular culture. Light Night visitors are encouraged to bring their own vinyl to play at their “Vinyl Café” and share their own memories.


The Writers' Room

A night of storytelling in the Everyman’s cosy Writers' Room. The evening begins with stories for small children and finishing with a few tales grown-up tales.


EV 1
Improv troupe The Unscriptables are teaming up with the Everyman this year for LightNight and will transform in front of your very eyes, performing scenes, characters and songs based on your suggestions. Chuck the players some props and costumes (provided), spin the genre wheel and much more. Shows roll across the evening for half an hour with short breaks in between. Come along and transform yourself by watching and participating in the playful craft of improvisation.


EV 2
Family craft activities inspired by transformation.


The Bistro

Everyman regulars A Lovely Word invite Light Night audiences to join them for an open mic evening of poetry and spoken word in the Everyman Bistro. Everyone is welcome to bring along their own work to perform in the laidback space of the Everyman Bistro.
