The annual Southport Festival is back this May. Last year 1000’s of families and visitors were in town over the weekend to enjoy a variety of on street entertainment, live musics and art exhibitions. Campaigns on social media reached over half a million regionally and visitors came in from throughout the region.
The festival is designed to allow businesses to get involved easily. We will be bringing together all your offers and events and adding them to our new dedicated website southportfestival.com (coming very soon). A paid social media campaign and region wide digital advertising campaign will be driving thousands to the website and will get your business in front of them all at NO COST to you. Get involved by:
– Putting on any type of live band or singer over the weekend
– Putting yourself forward for a guest artist to exhibit on your walls
– Hosting a poet or pop up theatre performance
– Holding a kids art and crafts afternoon
The possibilities are endless!

Southport Festival is brought together through collaboration and a united sense of wanting to bring art, culture and colour to Southport. The festival is directed by representatives from Southport Contemporary Arthouse, The Atkinson, Southport BID and Sefton Council alongside passionate members of the local arts community. Funded and resourced by Southport BID and Sefton Council the festival is now in its fourth year. The festival wouldn’t of course be possible without the enthusiasm and participation of the brilliant businesses, partners and venues involved. Our aims are to bring together communities, art forms and local talent and businesses to create a diverse festival that truly has something to offer everyone!
