Awakenings Concert with Aliki Chrysochou - 22nd February 2015


World Exclusive Event In Collaboration With The University Of Liverpool

Buy your tickets here!

Join us at The Everyman Theatre in Liverpool for this exclusive World Premiere with International singer Aliki Chrysochou.  The evening is hosted by Dr Ava Easton, Chief Executive of The Encephalitis Society who is joined by the University of Liverpool's Professor Tom Solomon.  The theatre recently won the RIBA sterling Prize for Best British Building against the huge competition of The Shard and London Aquatics Centre!  The theatre is opening its doors on a Sunday in order to host this premiere event.  

As a little taster you can click this link and view the song Aliki dedicated to World Encephalitis Day 2014.


Several years ago Aliki contracted Encephalitis.  The devastation that this wreaked upon her and her family should not be underestimated and Aliki lost all capacity for co-ordination, speech and movement.  She was unable to take care of herself and her mother fed her, bathed her and took care of her every personal need.  After months of medical care Aliki eventually began the road to recovery and music became the conduit for her recovery.  Now a sought-after artist, Aliki has gone on to sing all over the world, including winning universal praise from the judges of Britain’s Got Talent, for her talent and courage and with all four judges giving her a standing ovation not once but twice.  It was shortly after this that Aliki agreed to become an Ambassador for The Encephalitis Society providing hope and inspiration for other people affected by this devastating condition.   Aliki wanted to do something to help us raise awareness and we have been thrilled to work with her on this exciting project!  During the event we will also hear a Keynote Address from Professor Tom Solomon, of Liverpool’s Institute of Infection and Global Health, who Chair’s the Encephalitis Society’s Professional Advisory Panel. He will give a brief overview of Encephalitis and explain why World Encephalitis Day is so important.

Liverpool is a fantastic city with a vibrant city centre, the Philharmonic Hall, a plethora of museums and buildings of historical interest as well as being home to probably the most famous boy band in the World – The Beatles!  Why not make a weekend of it and stay at our preferred hotel and sponsor The Hope Street Hotel.
