Southport What’s On Highlights

Southport offers a spectacular series of events. There’s so much happening across our town all year round, but some simply must not be missed! Here’s a highlight or two.

If you love good food and good times, you need Southport Food and Drink Festival in your diary! It is a favourite every year for foodies and families alike. If you’re keen to support local, this free event offers an abundance of local traders who sell goodies to enjoy at the Festival, alongside hand-picked producers offering tasty ingredients for you to take home.

Thrill seekers must check out Southport Air Show, where you can expect aerobatic displays from jets, fighters, bombers, helicopters, and historic aircraft. Keep your eyes on the skies. Experience the next best thing to being in the aircraft in a simulator or bring a picnic and enjoy watching the whole show from the beach.

Once the summer is in full bloom, spend an afternoon at Southport Flower Show, boasting beautiful floral displays, food, drink, and other entertainment for all. For those who have a passion for gardening, you can enter your lovingly nurtured home-grown produce in our Amateur Growers’ Marquee competition.

If firework displays are your thing, then make sure you book a ticket for our British Musical Fireworks Championship. Get your dancing feet ready to enjoy the only UK firework competition that is choreographed to music. We love watching competitors battle it out, each hoping to be crowned the ultimate winner!

Stars from the world of comedy are here to brighten up our autumn nights with fun and laughter with the annual Southport Comedy Festival, in the beautiful grounds of Victoria Park

Southport also boasts a lively culture and music scene when it comes to events, with regular events in The Atkinson, from theatre productions to regular music gigs and all the niche events in between.

With plenty of events all year around, there’s always something happening in Southport.
