Southport Festival

Art, theatre, folk, punk, poetry, laughter, pottery, jazz, dance and choirs…this is Southport Festival.

Over three days, Southport bursts into life with a huge programme of art and culture splashed throughout its venues and open spaces. Memories are waiting to be made at Wesley Street’s annual festival.  Interactive street drawing and dress up for little ones create unforgettable experiences.  Music, dance performances and laughter will fill the street.

Music will pour from venues throughout the town centre, with jazz orchestras, flamenco guitar, folk, jive and pop punk bands just some of the excellent free performances coming over 3 days and nights, all headlined by Remedy’s stage in Town Hall Gardens. Other highlights for 2018 include ballroom dancing magic with Giovanni Pernice at The Atkinson and a town wide myths and legend theme with Magical Mermaid gardens and a Viking Long Boat

Who we are…

Southport Festival is brought together through collaboration and a united sense of wanting to bring art, culture and colour to Southport. 

The festival is directed by representatives from Southport BID, Sefton Council, Southport Contemporary Arts, The Atkinson and The SDC alongside passionate members of the local arts community.  

Funded and resourced by Southport BID and Sefton Council the festival is now in its third year, having been emerged from the annual Arts Trail and Jazz Festival before it. 

The festival wouldn’t of course be possible without the enthusiasm and participation of the brilliant businesses, partners and venues involved, including Wesley Street Traders, Sandgrounder Radio and more.

Our aims are to bring together communities, art forms and local talent and businesses to create a diverse festival that truly has something to offer everyone!
