Liverpool Food and Drink Festival’s brand new spring event is set to bring foodie fun for all the family to the beautiful Sefton park this Easter Bank Holiday, 5th-6th April.
The festival will transform the park into an Easter playground, with a jam-packed schedule of interactive activities, from a Mad Hatter’s tea party, inflatable village and den making to story-telling and a classic egg and spoon race.
While the children have lots of fun and games to enjoy, adults can take part in floristry, planting and chocolate demonstrations and masterclasses, browse the field sampling flavours from around the world, or head over to the relaxing bar for a well-deserved glass of fizz.
There will be an abundance of treats on offer in the street food, restaurant and producer areas across the field. Visitors can eat, drink and shop their way around the themed zones which include street food, deli delights, a heavenly chocolate garden, sweet and treats, cafe corner, children’s zone and a kitchenware area.
