We know that no one is coming to save us. This year’s TWT is all about remembering that the activists, groups and organisations that come together each year have always been the source of our hope and strength.

You are the real opposition. So let’s face these crises together, stay connected, get organised - and let’s have a good time while we do it.

Every year since 2016, TWT has been bringing thousands of people together, and this year we’ll again be at the Black-E and other illustrious Liverpool venues, with trainings, debates and workshops on all the critical issues. You can expect fan favourites like the pub quiz, innovations like our upgraded TV studio and the most important activists, thinkers and politicians on the left.  Most importantly, you can catch up with old comrades over a cup of tea or a pint in the Black-E, where we'll be running our own bar and kitchen, and giving you proper space to connect, plan and celebrate. We’ll also be showcasing the finest in radical arts and culture and while we’re at it, we’ll have a good time at some of the biggest and best parties in the city.


The Black-E is the spiritual home of The World Transformed - we started here in 2016.

The main space is the heart of the festival - expect big names, good vibes and a great bar!

Raked seating and good acoustics make this the most traditional teaching space in the Black-E; but don't worry, there's nothing traditional about the lessons.
