Details of the Liverpool Spring Festival have been revealed and include interactive workshops, a producers’ market, DJ sets and the usual food and drink offers.
The festival will take place in Sefton Park on April 28 & 29 with a programme of entertaining and educational sessions, which are themed around nature and wildlife, including seed planting and herb growing.
There will be also be plenty to keep young animal lovers busy with birds of prey and mini beasts, as well as a pop-up farm, where youngsters can get up close to guinea pigs, rabbits and ferrets.
There will also be an opportunity to bottle feed baby lambs and goats and there will be a cow milking challenge, where children and adults can try their hand at milking Daisy, Stockley Farm’s very own wooden cow.
The festival also includes a sheep show, which is guaranteed to make the audience smile as nine different breeds of sheep appear on stage, each with their own theme tune.
Visitors will learn about the different breeds of sheep, the wool they produce and there will be an opportunity to watch the skill involved in sheep shearing. There will also be arts and crafts, a vintage fairground, donkey rides and storytelling throughout the weekend.
People who prefer a more relaxing weekend can choose from a number of health and wellbeing workshops including yoga, meditation, relaxation and healthy eating.
Isabella Kantor, Liverpool Spring Festival event manager, said: “Spring is a time to celebrate all that is good about nature and the outdoors, as the weather starts to warm up. We are aiming to give people a reason to get together to enjoy the best of the season with outdoor fun that will appeal to the whole family.”
Liverpool Spring Festival is a sister event to Liverpool Food and Drink Festival, which will take place later this year (September 15).
