Stanley Park festival announced

Anfield’s Stanley Park is to have its own festival in April, to coincide with the city's Titanic weekend and the arrival of the Sea Odyssey giants from Nantes. 

Sitting in between the city's two existing giants – Anfield and Goodison Park football grounds - the Stanley Park Festival will take place over three days. It will encompass a food and drink festival, live music, a family activity zone and children’s play area. 

Stanley Park LiverpoolStanley Park LiverpoolBacked by Liverpool Vision, there will also, say organisers, be a chance to find out more about community groups in the area - one of the UK's most deprived. 

The three-day festival is the first of its kind in north Liverpool and will take place across the weekend of 20th-22nd April. 

Festival organiser, Gemma McGowan said: “Stanley Park Festival will be a real family day-out, those coming to north Liverpool will be able to see that it has changed a great deal, and the arrival of Sea Odyssey rubber stamps this. 

“The festival will be the icing on the cake for a landmark moment for this area and we hope to welcome guests from all across the city and beyond. 

“We have a few surprises up our sleeve that will be revealed nearer the time, but let’s just say Stanley Park Festival will be a fantastic celebration for how far this area has come.”

Stanley Park Festival comes just six months after the launch of The Beautiful North project which aims at boosting business and jobs in North Liverpool. 

Max Steinberg, chief executive of Liverpool Vision, said:  “It is our aim for the area to flourish and become a vital source of prosperity, enterprise and creativity for the city once again and the success of the Stanley Park Festival is vital to that ambition.”

Hurrah! Somebody has finally realised Sefton Park isn't the only one we have that can hold such events.
