Liverpool Food and DrinkLiverpool Food and DrinkIt’s back, the food festival that is the envy of all foodies in the UK. There’s a week of fine foods and the best pub grub around, but not only that. New for 2011 and in response to public demand, the festival’s launch day has been extended into two days.

In addition to a massive array of food and drink offerings around out fair city, visitors will be welcomed by multiple themed dining areas, exciting cooking demonstrations from some of the UK’s top celebrity chefs, entertainment, beer bars, wine and champagne tents and numerous designated sampling areas.

On Saturday, September 3, thousands of food lovers will descend on Sefton Park for a chance to try culinary delights from an array of exhibitors from around the region. Take a seat at one of the participating restaurants for a small bite to eat or a delicious three course meal, or set up your very own picnic in the middle of the festival site. Every day also has a different offer, so grab these from the festival’s website before you go and take full advantage of them during the week of food and drink related shenanigans.

Once you’ve tasted your way around the city, take a trip around the stalls for your chance to purchase a selection of tempting treats from some of the finest producers around. Throughout the day, be sure to head to our demonstration tents where you can pick up helpful hints, tips and recipe ideas from our fantastic celebrity chefs.

Jimmy Carr at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall

Jimmy CarrJimmy CarrProbably better known for his appearance on television shows, top comedian Jimmy Carr will bring his charm and offensive nature to Liverpool Philharmonic Hall for a cracking night of comedy.

Since the turn of the century Jimmy Carr has been a ‘fun slinger’ of international repute. He is described, undoubtedly by himself, as one of the most original and distinctive stars on television, radio and the stage.

Jimmy has enjoyed several hugely successful years, and Laughter Therapy is his ninth solo show. It’ll be an evening of none stop jokes, gags and banter. If you’ve got a sick sense of humour then maybe laughter is the best medicine.

Not to be taken if you have a sensitive disposition or an overactive moral compass. Recommended dose: one brand new show to be taken annually (we said annually).

This show is not suitable for under 16s, but we suspect you guessed that already. The audience’s benign sovereignty is a key factor in any comedians’ acts, and it certainly is in Carr’s.  His clean-cut, slightly nerdy appearance is juxtaposed with the countless one-liners that range from naughty, to dirty, to occasionally cringe-inducing. Just, not for the kids.

Jimmy Carr Live, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 September 2011, tickets from £25


An Intimate Evening with Joe Longthorne

Joe LongthorneJoe Longthorne

You like blues, jazz, that kind of thing? Not a fan of the nu-music, repetitive beats and soulless singing? Fear not. Floral Pavilion Theatre is offering you an alternative night to swing to the good old tunes, and have a few laughs.

Joe Longthorne, was born into a show business family; his parents were both travelling show people, so it was only a matter of time before young Joe started entertaining for himself. At the age of fourteen, he landed a part in Yorkshire Television’s popular series, ‘Junior Showtime’ and remained with the show for over two years, working with many of Britain’s leading stars.

It was through the London Weekend series ‘Search For A Star’ in 1981 that Joe was first launched onto the British televiewing public as a singer-impressionist, and his success on the show led to appearances at the London Palladium and a month long season at London’s Talk Of The Town.

The following year, he received the Variety Club’s coveted award for Most Promising Artiste and has been fulfilling that promise ever since.

Joe Longthorne’s repertoire of voices is endless and includes hundreds of the world’s top singers. However, he is perhaps best known for his impersonation of Shirley Bassey who has commented, ‘Joe can do me better than I can do myself’.

Liverpool Pavilion Theatre , Friday 2nd September 2011 at 7pm, tickets from £19.50
