NEW BRIGHTON TO HOST FIRST EVER SEASIDE BANK HOLIDAY FESTIVAL FOR ALL THE FAMILY!
Orb Events is delighted to announce a brand-new festival for Spring 2017 – the New Brighton Seaside Festival!
The fantastic three-day family festival will take place over the Spring Bank Holiday (27-29 May). It will take over a huge space between Fort Perch Rock and the Floral Pavilion Theatre on the Marine Promenade in New Brighton.
As well as offering an exciting programme of fun seaside-themed entertainment, the event is set to showcase the best of homegrown seasonal fayre featuring a host of regional producers and introducing a raft of new spring menus from local chefs, restaurants and food businesses.
The first large scale seaside festival of its kind in the area, the weekender is the brainchild of Liverpool event management company Orb Events, the team behind some of the city’s largest festivals including the award-winning Liverpool Loves, Liverpool Pride, and Farm Feast.
The organisers aim to capture the traditional seaside charm of New Brighton while offering an invigorating programme for the whole region to get involved in.
The festival will provide a memorable day out at the seaside – with a varied programme of fun activities each day that families can attend throughout the weekend encouraging festival goers to stay for the whole Bank Holiday.
Foodies can take their pick from a plethora of food traders, take a stroll over to the gin garden and artisan market, get involved with the cookery demos or head to the undercover seating area to sample some craft beer or dabble in a cocktail class or two.
All the while, they will be serenaded by live music from the main stage, from buoyant sea shanty choruses to mesmerising acoustic performances, with plenty of pop-up musical entertainment taking place throughout the site to transport visitors into a coastal utopia.
For the young at heart, a full children’s activity programme will be taking place each day including Punch and Judy style puppet shows, funfair, an on-site crafter van, planting workshops and bush craft classes to boot.
The Festival begins at 10am each day from Saturday, May 27 to Monday, May 29. With a varied and interactive programme across three days, the weekend is guaranteed to put a spring in the step of family visitors just in time for the Bank Holiday break.
