Independent Liverpool has announced plans for next month’s Spring Food and Drink Festival as the two-day event looks to celebrate the city’s small businesses.

The festival, which was such a success last year, is being held at Liverpool’s Great Baltic Warehouse and boasts an Easter theme this time round with a special rabbit hole and an Easter egg hunt.

David Williams, Independent Liverpool co-founder, told JMU Journalism: “The festival is an incredible opportunity to see the best of Liverpool all under one roof. From restaurants to face painters and everything in between all people share one unique factor: they’re independent. And that is exactly what we’re all about.

“We just want to showcase Liverpool’s incredible independent scene.”

The Liverpool gin garden, which was common amongst visitors last year, is re-opening and David is hoping for the same outcome this year. He added: “The guys that run the gin garden are involved in some incredible developments in the city and are always at the forefront of good times.

“There’s nothing more British than a gin and tonic in a garden, but this one isn’t what you would normally expect and is a treat for all senses.”

The full music line-up for the festival is currently being kept secret, however David has promised live music throughout the weekend. There will be performances from local DJs as well as some up and coming groups.

Festival goers can visit the Independent Liverpool Spring Food and Drink Festival on Good Friday and Easter Saturday, March 25th and 26th.

Day tickets for the event cost £6 and weekend tickets cost £10.
