It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
It’s back. No, we’re not pulling your cracker. The big C word is just around the corner and we’re excited to turn The Great Baltic Warehouse, in the Baltic Triangle, into a winter festival fit for Father Christmas himself. Christmas brings the big kid out in everyone and this weekend festival will take you back to a time when Father Christmas was real. But this time you get to do it all with a mulled wine in your hand. The dream.
You can’t have a festival without food and drink so we’ve gathered some of the best restaurants in the city together to put their own special Crimbo twist on their beloved menus. Don’t worry everyone, there will be enough mince pies for you all. As usual, the food traders will be released over the next couple of weeks. Want something to wash that down with? Liverpool’s premiere gin garden will be converted into a mulled wine garden and the Greenhouse space will be turned into “Me Nan’s” – a pop up Baileys bar meant to mimic a typical Scouse Nan’s living room on Christmas Day with antiques, old furniture and an alternative Christmas speech. Beer lovers, we haven’t forgotten you, we’ve got a Liverpool Craft Corner to keep you merry all night. Grab your tickets here.
We’re going to also have a gift shop where we’ll be bringing some of the best local arts and craft people together in one space so you can give the gift of local this year. Expect local cheese mongers, chocolatiers, illustrators and more with an extra special stall where you can order your own Christmas tree. Everybody’s favourite Grown Up Grinch’s Grotto will also be back. Expect dim red lights, black tinsel and specially curated whisky cocktails. Sound good? You know it does. The soundtrack to this incredible weekend will be provided by lots of local DJs, live music and some alternative carol singers destined to bring us all together,under one big roof for an incredible weekend of wintery fun.
This event is fun for all the family. Kids do come free and there will be the chance to meet the real life Santa himself. Although it’s a very busy period of time for him, he absolutely loves Liverpool and couldn’t resist the opportunity to spend a weekend with some Scousers. The event isn’t for kids but definitely is kid friendly and there’ll be a kids corner to keep them busy whilst you drink the Bailey’s bar dry.
