You can find Salt and Tar in between the Liverpool-Leeds canal and Bootle Strand, the areas newest hub for large-scale and community events, as well as food and drink.

Residents and visitors can now check out the website to learn more about the space, and all the events coming to Salt & Tar, including the Comedy Weekender and a Music Festival two weekends in July.

Chris McCausland heads up a host of famous faces appearing at the three-day comedy festival. A small number of tickets are still available on the Salt and Tar ticket website.

Liverpool band Red Rum Club are slated to headline the festival in July, for which tickets have already sold out.

On top of the website launch, new artwork for the events space has been released. It provides the clearest look yet of how Salt and Tar will look once the final touches are completed.

The images released today show the space as it will look once work is finished, complete with repurposed shipping containers acting as food stalls. In addition to the food stalls and pop-up bars, there is a viewing platform, a marquee, rows of seating and decorative elements featuring plenty of greenery.
