2020 Wirral Food, Drink & Music Festival rescheduled to September 2021

01/06/2020

Wirral Council has announced that this year’s Wirral Food, Drink & Music Festival will be rescheduled to September 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The rescheduled date will see legendary Merseyside bands Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), Echo & the Bunnymen, and The Coral continue to headline the award-winning event for an unmissable weekend on 3-5 September 2021.

The daytime offer celebrating food and produce from across Wirral, curated by Chef Patron of The Art School Restaurant, Paul Askew with a host of celebrity chefs will also follow the successful format established in 2019 across two days.

This year’s festival was expected to attract up to 40,000 attendees, and the decision to reschedule has been taken to follow government guidance on large gatherings to keep people safe.

A Wirral Council spokesperson said:

‘While we are very disappointed not to be able to go ahead with Wirral Food, Drink & Music Festival this year, our priority must be people’s safety.

‘The 2019 event was a huge success, attracting 30,000 people to Birkenhead Park to sample Wirral’s finest produce and enjoy world-class music.

‘We appreciate that it is a little further away than we had originally planned, but the 2021 festival will certainly be worth the wait! We are already busy planning and looking forward to next year’s event.’

People who have already bought tickets to the evening concerts will be emailed by Tickets Wirral, and there will be an option to transfer tickets to the 2021 event.
