Sunday 17th April sees the next instalment of Heebie Jeebie’s alternative fayre where independents from all over the city come together in one courtyard.
Revellers of the night will tell you Heebie Jeebie’s is one of the best places to go on a night out in Liverpool. It holds a cult-like status in the city and they’re giving you yet another reason to return this weekend. With 20 independent businesses involved in the day there really is no shortage of things to eat, watch, buy, listen to…. and most importantly drink. Spring is renowned for daffodils, baby chicks…. and of course stilt walking, fire dancing bunny rabbits. Well at least it is at the Heebie Jeebie’s Spring Fayre, where you should expect the unexpected. Kicking off from 2pm, the fayre could go on until late evening or it could go on until the next day, you just don’t know.
We’re pretty sure, on a Sunday, this might be the only place in Liverpool you can get your face painted and get a tattoo whilst stuffing your face with a gluten-free pie. The hostess with the mostest comes in the form of Jonny Sands, well-known evangelist of local music and all round dapper guy who will be introducing the amazing live acts. If that wasn’t good enough, there will also be vintage clothes on sale from Wex where proceeds will go to the homeless, hand crafted jewellery, a barbers and lots of vinyl to rummage through. The best part of it all, despite the unity of so many interesting independents, is the fact it won’t cost you a penny.
We caught up with Joe Maryanji, chief organiser behind the day of fun:
“Tattooists to Taxidermy, Indian fusion street food to a comic book arcade there are a huge range of independent businesses involved in this year’s Heebies Spring fayre and that’s just scratching the surface.As with all our events it’s free entry and with some incredible music on offer as well as a few ‘entertaining’ surprises, it all kicks off at 2pm and goes right the way through until the early hours Monday morning. The Heebies Independent fayres has established themselves over the last few years as events that leave more than a lasting memory.”
More details here, we’ll see you there.
