11 Brilliant things you can do at the Liverpool Spring Food & Drink Festival
5 years ago
Sefton Park is gearing up to welcome another jam-packed weekend of food, drink, wellness activities and family fun.
The Spring Food and Drink Festival in Sefton Park returns on 28th and 29th April and with Sefton Park awash with beautiful blooms and plenty of sunshine, we can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend. Grab yourself a craft beer or a big gin goblet as Liverpool Spring Festival gives you the biggest tastiest outdoor food court in the city. This huge showcase of top class, local producers comes with some added bonuses this April as there’s also the chance to explore yoga, meditation or some high intensity exercise classes in the Free Wellness Classes Tent running all weekend.
Watch above as our Jay met up with Charlotte from the festival to find out how preparation is going down at Sefton Park.
If you’re heading down to the Liverpool Spring Food & Drink Festival, this year sponsored by Arriva and Space Coffee, with the family, the kids are in for a treat too! With Stockley Farm petting zoo, Ginger Island Face painting and a brand new baaahh-rilliant sheep show, plus loads more to check out, there’s plenty to keep toddlers to teens occupied all weekend long. Oh and here’s the best bit, kids under 14 go free! With two days full of food, drinks, activities and shows to check out, we’ve put together our top pics ahead of the Liverpool Spring Food & Drink Festival.
