Birthing 11 years of celebrity chef demonstrations, culinary masterclasses, live music & some of the best pop-up food & drink vendors in the UK, we proudly present to you Liverpool Food and Drink Festival; September.

For those of you who haven’t experienced our foodie’s Paradiso, that see’s bespoke ingredients, independent brands, never-have-you-tasted-before-and-wouldn’t-ever-otherworldly flavours, & tips & tricks from the food Gods themselves, you’re in for a treat (or several).

Cross our piquant plains & inhale our overwhelming aromas, as juxtaposing zingy Asian scents & all-too-familiar pizza-whiffs hit your sniffer and leave you with a crucial decision to consider. What food to get?

Upon devouring multiple dishes simultaneously, adore wandering through the explosive array of entertainment & culture at your feet: consume invigorating food & drink masterclasses, live tutorials lead by world-renowned, culinary doyens & some of Liverpool’s best local music.

Plot your way around our designated zones, (to strategically ensure you get your fill of copious crafty blends at the Spirits Zone, post-Kids-Village), where each member of the family will discover an area to satisfy their taste, entirely.
