Liverpool looks forward to big food and drink beano, starting this Sunday. Will Marco Pierre White show up?

SEPTEMBER Sundays: AS synonymous with walks in the park and kicking cornflakes they are with that vaguely gloomy what-happened-on-Saturday-night? feeling.

There is nothing down for you, except church.

Alternatively, you could just worship at the altar of food and drink.

For Bacchus is the way forward and a trip to Sefton Park will answer all your Sunday prayers as the venue for the launch of 2009's Liverpool Food and Drink Festival.

More than 50 of Liverpool’s best known bars and restaurants will be larging it. And they are even hinting that Marco Pierre White will be wandering around.

Malmaison, London Carriageworks, Il Forno, Sapporo Teppanyaki,and 60 Hope Street and many more all setting out their stalls to tantalise the taste buds of thousands of visitors with an array of mouth-watering dishes and delicious drinks for the festival’s official launch.

What's not to live about eating and from 10.30am-5.00pm, you will be able to enjoy live music, hourly cooking demonstrations from some of Liverpool’s most talented chefs, beer tents and a children’s play area.

Sponsors for this year’s event include SK Events, the festival’s organisers, Il Forno and Sapporo, The Mersey Partnership and Liverpool ONE.

The clamour to book stalls in the park began early this year , apparently, and Denise Harris from SK Events said: “The success of last year’s festival helped us to create an impressive list of sponsors and supporters for 2009’s event and I think this magnifies the fact that Liverpool has become such a fantastic restaurant and bar hot spot.”

But there's more. Following the Sefton Park event, which is expected to attract double the number of people on last year, restaurants and bars from around the city will host special events and offers for diners right throughout next week, with different themes every day.

Go on, repent and eat.

PS: First person to spot Marco wins a copy of Jim Davidson's autobiography.
