New Brighton Seaside Festival - The Guide Liverpool

Countdown to the New Brighton Seaside Festival is on and you can win tickets!

With the end of May coming swiftly over the horizon, the countdown is now on for a big, exciting attraction to sail into the shores of New Brighton.

Watch for all the info you need as our Jay meets event organiser Debbie Boyd on site where the festival is taking place.

There’s just over a week to go until the first ever New Brighton Seaside Festival will make a huge splash – transforming the town into one huge seaside extravaganza like no other.

Coming to the Wirral resort this Spring Bank Holiday, the festival brings three days of seaside fun for everyone!

The festival takes place from Saturday 27th to Monday 29th May at the truly special location of Fort Perch Rock – close to the Marine Point leisure district – on the north-eastern tip of the Wirral Peninsula on the bay of Liverpool, where the River Mersey meets the Irish Sea.

Inspired by past successes such as ‘Farm Feast’ and the award-winning ‘Liverpool Loves’, organisers Orb Events have created a dynamic family feel festival that celebrates the hidden charm, culture and heritage of New Brighton whilst offering an invigorating and fresh programme of entertainment and activities for the whole area to get involved in!

Featuring delicious world cuisine from hand selected street food sellers, the best local musical talent and a fantastic array of family-friendly activities and entertainment… it’s a big day out you don’t want to miss!

Festival director, Debbie Boyd explained:New Brighton was once a bustling seaside resort fondly remembered by people of all generations who enjoyed happy holidays there as a child or with their own children, from all over the UK and further afield.

“We want to recapture this halcyon feeling of family days out at the heart of The Wirral whilst celebrating this fantastic asset to the region, and encouraging people from far and wide to come and #MakeNewMemories once again in New Brighton.”

The team at Orb Events have been hard at work, putting together a fantastic programme that’s completely unique in the region.

From buoyant sea shanty choruses to quality local bands and artists, there’s set to be plenty of musical entertainment for all tastes taking place throughout the weekend, from the brilliant shanty and folk trio,Button Street Badger Band to Liverpool group The Ship Builders, alt-pop songstress Eleanor Nelly, the Sing Me Merseyside Choir and New Brighton favourite, the fantastic Marc Kenny.

And a programme of have-a-go activities and children’s entertainment will be sure dazzle and delight your little ones, with everything from a Vintage Funfair and Punch and Judy style puppet shows, to a doggy fancy dress competition and even a Unicorn Parade…

What’s a festival without food and drink? The seaside eats will showcase a whole host of springtime fayre through themed-menus. The very best local producers and regional street food heroes will be on hand to keep your whole family fuelled! Visitors can also expect local craft beers, cocktails, a gin bar and a whole lot more…

Over in the Chef’s Theatre at Fort Perch Rock, there will be a hive of fun foodie activities taking place throughout the weekend including a Comedy Cook Off between renowned chef Adam Franklin and Scouse comedian Brendan Riley. There will also be a Food Forage Challenge, Fun Food Competitions and Chefs’ demonstrations from the Wirral’s premier chefs.
