Southport Festival 2019

Southport Festival is an explosion of culture across the town. Discover poetry, be captivated by literature, laugh out loud with comedy, immerse yourself in art or be moved by music – this is Southport Festival.

Taking place over three days, from 10th to 12th May 2019, Southport comes alive with colour and music, with events taking place throughout town centre’s venues and open spaces. With many events free there is something for everyone amongst our line-up of demonstrations, have-a-go activities and live performances.

Let little ones fall in love with the magic of theatre and art with a range of performances and free interactive events. Unleash your creative side and learn a new skill with workshops, demonstrations and exhibitions. Love live music? Wander into great Southport venues to enjoy live folk, jazz or rock and more or be taken away by the words poets.

Whether you book a hotel and take in all you can over the weekend, enjoy dinner after a full day of art, laughter and magic before heading home or simply dip into one or two events – you can make the weekend your own. The secret is, whatever you do, experience something brand new and create exceptional Southport memories. This is the #southportfest experience!
