Formby Festival is back this July, bigger and better!
We are so pleased to confirm that Formby Festival will be making a return to Duke Street Park on the 3rd weekend of July 2017. Last year was an amazing success raising money for various charities including Help for Heroes and local causes like Charlie’s Chance. As ever we’ve been planning to make the weekend even bigger and better than the last, and we’ve got lots of exciting announcements coming up.
On Friday night we’ll be holding another school choir competition, as well as welcoming a headline music act to perform. There will be plenty of food and drink stands open as well as some children’s activities.
Saturday will be jam packed back-to-back with bands and performers as they take to the main stage to entertain the food court as well as the showcases and performances in our display arena. We’ll have an all-new redesigned Children’s entertainment area with bouncy castles, fun slides, rodeo bulls and the famous assault course! Visitors can also take a peek at some of our live chef demonstrations and take a stroll through our farmers’ market whilst the little ones make their own creations at our Kids Cooking sessions. These can be booked online soon via the website! Saturday night will be hotting up with another headline act as well as a live DJ set before the main event; the Formby Festival fireworks!
Don’t forget to visit us on Sunday too, we’ll have our signature batala band parading through. You won't want to miss them!
This is set to be the biggest year so far, don’t miss out. Make sure you’re following us across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat as we’ll be making lots of exciting announcements in the run up to the big weekend.
I’m excited to announce this year’s opening times for the festival are: Friday 14th July - 5PM to 10PM Saturday 15th July - 11AM to 11PM Sunday 16th July - 11AM to 6PM We hope to see you there!
