The RopeWalks, part of which lies within the UNESCO World Heritage site, is home to much of Liverpool’s history and culture, including the oldest Chinatown in Europe, FACT and the well-known entertainment areas around Concert Square.
The RopeWalks, like London’s Shoreditch or New York’s Meatpacking District, is Liverpool’s Design Quarter, where you will find an eclectic mix of old and new, traditional and modern.
Most of all, the RopeWalks enjoys what Benji Lanyado, writing in the New York Times, described as “that most heady of urban ingredients: an edge".
Now in its seventh year, the festival is a celebration of the city’s fantastic restaurants, bars, and cafés, as well as some of the finest regional food producers. Sefton Park will be transformed into a weekend ‘food heaven’, bringing together more than 160 talented local chefs and producers to serve up a giant feast for the public.
This year’s additional Friday evening event will toast the great British pub with a celebration of pub grub, real ales, spirits, live music and entertainment. There will also be an exclusive fine dining experience, as well as a street food zone and a hand-picked selection of producers, showcasing everything from posh pork pies, cheeses and olives to coffee, fudge and liqueurs.
Other must-see features include a ‘chocolate area’, an ‘edible garden’ and a ‘children’s zone’ dedicated to family entertainment, as well as a whole programme of master classes and celebrity chef demos.
