Port Sunlight Festival in association with PG tips deemed major success
Village sees 35,000 over two days
Port Sunlight Village Trust staged one of the biggest events in its history this weekend combining its summer festival and winter food fayre into a signature PG Tips Port Sunlight Festival that coincided with its Founder’s Day celebrations.
Key attractions enjoyed by some 35,000 visitors included more than 100 regional food and craft producers, a chef demonstration stage, vintage entertainment and children’s rides, a fun dog show, a vintage and classic car display and live music.
Additional sponsors beyond PG tips included Knorr, Family Housing Association, Wirral Animal Feeds, Port Sunlight Garden Centre and Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) who were in attendance to highlight their waste prevention work, in particular the Love Food Hate Waste campaign.
Katherine Lynch of the Port Sunlight Village Trust and manager of Port Sunlight Museum was delighted at the turn out. She said: “The sun shone on us all weekend and overall, its been an amazing two days. There’s been an overwhelming family feel to the whole event. I’d like to thank everybody for making the event happen and we’ve proved that we can deliver outdoor festivals to match some of the largest and most successful of this type in the country.”
The village welcomes approximately 300,000 visitors each year and is home to more than 2,000 residents. For more information visit www.portsunlightvillage.com
