The New Brighton Summer Festival is returning this month!

The New Brighton Summer Festival returns this July after an incredible inaugural event last year for a 4 day extravaganza on New Brighton dips!

Tens of thousands of people flocked to the Wirral waterside for last year’s inaugural showcase, and this year’s free, family-friendly festival promises to be even bigger. With a wide range of top entertainment on offer over the long weekend, as well as over 150 local independents showcasing their food, arts, and crafts, it’s set to be an unforgettable few days!

Mr. Tumble Liverpool, The Disney Princess Show, Blippi, Little Star Tykes, a superhero show, a Spiderman stunt show, a character meet and greet, local music artists, dance and drama school shows, and more are among the live acts. In addition, there is a fun fair that is twice the size of the game zone, sensory zone, and pet zone from the previous year. Also, there is exceptional live music from some of the most prominent local artists for the adults.

Donkey rides, paintballing, axe throwing, football, balloons, face painting, beauty trucks, hair braiding, body piercing, jewellery, and tarot will be available. A vast independent market village will be present, offering a plethora of handcrafted artisan products and delectable street food to tantalise the taste buds.

Co-Organiser Jess Waring from This Side Of The Water said: 

“Last year was an overwhelming success and we’re so excited to be kicking on from that and putting on an even bigger 4 day event this year! The weather has been incredible so far this year and we’re looking forward to welcoming tens of thousands of people for an unforgettable weekend of fun in the sun by the sea!”

Co-Organiser Kate added: 

“Our ethos is one of promoting local independents and one of inclusivity. It’s a free event for all and we have a neurodiversity policy, including wristbands and queue jumps for children who struggle to queue and quiet zones. People can just come for a free day or choose to spend as much as they want — it’s all about fun for everyone to enjoy and creating memories that will last a lifetime.”

The New Brighton Summer Festival is another sign of New Brighton’s resurgence as a seaside destination. New Brighton is most certainly back on the map, along with the great waterfront activities at West Cheshire Sailing Club, Wilkie’s Adventureland, Marine Point, The Fort, The Floral Pavilion, Vale Park, and the sterling work of Rockpoint Leisure’s regeneration of Victoria Road!

Jess summarised: 

“New Brighton was once a booming destination and fell into decline but it’s very much a top destination again! We’re proud that our festival is adding to that and we hope that it will remind people that New Brighton is very much the place to be for top entertainment, food, drink, togetherness and community. We can’t wait to see you all there!”
