Wirral Food, Drink & Music Festival

The biggest food and music event in Wirral is coming back for a second year!

OMD, Echo & the Bunnymen and The Coral headline an even bigger weekend

Wirral Food, Drink & Music Festival is back for a second year on 4th – 6th September following an amazing 'September to Remember' in 2019. The two-day, free food festival in Birkenhead Park on 5th & 6th September will welcome families, foodies, first-time visitors and friends to enjoy the best of Wirral’s produce and delicatessen. The popular evening concerts will be ramped up with an extra night on Friday 4 September, headlined by Merseyside stars OMD, Echo & the Bunnymen and The Coral.

Friday 4th September will see The Coral combine James Skelly’s powerful vocals with their knack for crafting chart-topping singles. On Saturday 5th September, one of Merseyside’s most famous bands Echo & the Bunnymen will weave their dark, swirling fusion, driven by the majestic voice of Ian McCulloch and the brilliant guitar work of Will Sergeant.

The weekend will be topped off by a rare performance on Sunday 6th September by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, back in their original Wirral stomping ground after touring the globe. Over the past four decades, OMD have sold an astonishing 25 million singles and 15 million albums. This will be their first ever full four-piece band concert in Wirral, and they will celebrate with all their hits. The band will be supported by pioneers of the Eighties art-indie scene Pete Wylie & The Mighty WAH!

The daytime festival offer is no less enticing than the evenings. During two days of food-focused free entertainment, Wirral resident and Ambassador Paul Askew, (Chef Patron of The Art School restaurant) will lead a strong line-up of chefs at the festival.

Paul will be joined by well-known chefs, providing professional tips and cooking up a storm, using fantastic produce available on the peninsula. Chefs will also link up with schools to run children’s cookery courses during the daytime.

Foodie favourites already confirmed in the popular Food Heroes Tent include The Art of Wine, Estrella Bar/Tappers Gin, Wards Fish, K&N Fresh Vegetables and Fruit, Wirral Watercress, and Edge and Sons butchers.
