New Brighton to host first ever family seaside festival

It's been confirmed that a three-day family festival will take place over the Spring Bank Holiday (27-29 May) in New Brighton between Fort Perch Rock and the Floral Pavilion Theatre.

As well as offering seaside-themed entertainment, the event will showcase the best of homegrown seasonal food featuring a host of regional producers and introducing a raft of  spring menus from local chefs, restaurants and food businesses. 

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 craft beer or dabble in a cocktail class or two.

There will be live music from the main stage, from sea shanty choruses to  acoustic performances, with musical entertainment taking place throughout the festival site.

A full children’s activity programme each day includes Punch and Judy style puppet shows, funfair, an on-site crafter van, planting workshops and bush craft classes.

The event begins at 10am each day from Saturday, May 27 to Monday, May 29, with a varied and interactive programme across three days.

Tickets can be obtained via Ticketquarter and are priced £5 for adults and £3 for children. Weekend ticket packages are also available.
