As a family we love festivals that are suitable for both parents and children, and find that they are a great way of finding new activities to experience whilst enjoying a friendly atmosphere with great music too. We were therefore really pleased to find out about a new festival only half an hour away from us that is being held over the the May Spring Bank Holiday (27th to 29th May) called The New Brighton Seaside Festival.
It will take place in a huge space in front of Fort Perch Rock, New Brighton Beach, Marine Lake, and the Promenade and will be the first large scale seaside festival of its kind in the area. It is the brainchild of Liverpool event management company Orb Events; the team behind some of the City region's largest festivals including the award-winning Liverpool Loves, Liverpool Pride and Farm Feast!
The New Brighton Seaside Festival is a dynamic family feel festival that celebrates the hidden charm, culture and heritage of New Brighton. In it's inaugural year, The New Brighton Seaside Festival is delighted to be embracing a modern vision for the area and bringing in an eclectic programme to locals and visitors alike. Expect everything from storytelling to Oyster shucking competitions; with lots of live music and even a pirate puppy parade.
There will be a diverse range of events including live entertainment, street food, chef demos, family activities, and a host of seaside themed attractions. A full children's activity programme will also be taking place each day that includes a Vintage Funfair, Punch and Judy style puppet shows - and there will also be lots of exciting workshops by the Junior Chef's Academy.
