Sun 25th May
Farm Feast takes over Wirral's Claremont Farm on May 25th and 26th for a bank holiday family fantasia of good wholesome fun!
Previously known as Wirral Food and Drink Festival, the new and improved Farm Feast - although keeping quality local, seasonal and artisan food and drink at its heart – will this year evolve into a fully fledged family festival with two music stages, providing the perfect start to a summer of fun.
For the grown-ups, Farm Feast will feature a Beer and Cider Festival, with over 40 ales and ciders showcasing the quality and diversity of the region’s brewers. Children will have their very own Little Feasters area, jam packed with interactive storytelling, bush craft workshops, cookery lessons and educational fun and games in the food and farming tents.
The Good Life Marquee at Farm Feast will deliver a programme of demonstrations, talks and ?have a go? exhibits. This is set to be a fascinating and engaging area of the festival where visitors will have a chance to learn skills such as how to make sausages, brew beer and keep bees.
The Chef’s Demo Stage will focus on clever cooking of fresh ingredients by some of better known chefs and cooks in the industry and a fantastic selection of traders will deliver a wide variety of street food that will celebrate the colours, flavours and styles of many cultures at an International Street Food Market on site.
Other attractions will include a Chilli Festival including some competitive chilli eating for those feeling brave, and a Vintage Village (more details to be released soon).
Elements of the old festival that visitors know and love, such as the farmers market, a wide variety of stalls from the region’s top food and drink producers and exhibitors, and the ever popular ‘sheep show’ will also be back for 2014. The Food and Farming Tent is one of the most popular areas of the festival, with live animals like calves, pigs and sheep.
Farm Feast will feature main and acoustic music stages and a separate night time ‘Livestock’ music event. Two of Liverpool’s best known music promoters will programme the daytime stages - The Dovedale Social will present the Main Stage, showcasing an eclectic line up that ranges from talented amateurs to seasoned performers and Mellowtone will programme the Courtyard Stage, which will feature the best local talent and acoustic performances.
Livestock, an evening festival style party in the great outdoors, will host an eclectic and alternative line up of performances from well known local bands to big name headliners. Farm Feast organisers are delighted to announce that Livestock will be programmed by Liverpool Sound City, hot on the heels of their yearly festival which takes over Liverpool City Centre every May in what is the largest metropolitan music and arts festival in the UK. Tickets for Livestock will be available separately at a later date, and, like Farm Feast, Livestock is FREE to attend for all under 18s!
The full music line up will be announced soon.
