We hope you’re sitting down for this one……

This year Liverpool Food and Drink Festival celebrate their 10th anniversary and they’ve made no exception with their festival line up on 16th and 17th September. A weekend of sheer indulgence and good times! When we turned 10 we celebrated by going to Hollywood Bowl and drinking our weight in blue slushy but Liverpool Food and Drink Festival are celebrating in a different way. An unforgettable soiree in Sefton Park with lamb spits and an acoustic performance you can’t miss out on.

On Friday 15th September we’re all invited to the food and drink festivals 10th anniversary party hosted by celebrity chef ‘Gizzi Erskine’ AND a live acoustic and intimate performance from the ‘Lightning Seeds’! (We told you it was special). This one off exclusive event will take place in the beautiful surroundings of Sefton Park under a huge marquee laid out with long candlelit banquet tables and hanging festoon lighting. Think fire pits and fire flares to add a warm ambience to the evening with a real boho festival feel. What’s even better is we’ve got a special discount code for you to grab one of these tickets.

Chef Gizzi Erskine is an advocate and innovator of the pop-up and underground food scenes. Best known for presenting Channel 4’s Cook Yourself Thin, she has also published the hugely successful Gizzi’s Kitchen Magic and many others. She contributes to InStyle, Grazia and is the Sunday Times cook. Gizzi’s menu for the evening will be Asian inspired and with her banquet parties at Festival no.6 we know we are in for a mouth watering treat. Roasted duck and watermelon salad, lamb spit roast in bao buns and Baked Vietnamese coffee cheesecake with coffee caramel and popcorn are just some of the treats for you on the menu. That just made us drool on our keyboard.

Whilst you’re slipping into food heaven merrily sipping on your fizz ‘Lightning Seeds’ will be turning things up with a truly unforgettable intimate night of acoustic music that will have you out your chair and dancing the night away. Formed in 1989, The Lightning Seeds are the alternative rock band from Liverpool known all over the world but for one night they’re going acoustic and it promises to be truly spectacular. Well, What are you waiting for? Tickets are £75 but don’t forget to put the 10% discount code ILFEAST to buy them here.
