Visitors also enjoyed a whole raft of tasty treats prepared by local chefs, street food stalls and producers.

To mark Liverpool Food and Drink Festival’s 10th birthday, there was also a special preview event in a boho-themed marquee in Sefton Park.

Guests enjoyed a three-course Asian style banquet from Gizzi Erskine as well as live music from iconic indie band Lightning Seeds.

“The restaurants, producers, street food stalls and bars all put on a fantastic feast for visitors to enjoy. The celebrity chef demos and local masterclasses were hugely entertaining and the sun even came out for the occasion.”
