Eat Your Heart Out - Norfolk Serviceway

Eat Your Heart Out

This year’s Eat Your heart Out Liverpool will light up Norfolk Serviceway, a hidden pocket of the CBD, with live music, arts and culture and, of course, amazing food.

Aria-nominated Artist L-FRESH the LION headlines an awesome list of performers, including a return appearance by Shaun Parker & Co with a brand new performance.

Set your taste buds tingling with food from around the globe, including a range of Sydney’s best food trucks alongside pop-up-shops from local favourites.


You can’t call a festival “Eat Your Heart Out” without offering a tantalising array of food – and Liverpool CBD’s signature event does just that with cuisine from across the world.

On Saturday 31 August, 1pm-9pm, Norfolk Serviceway will combine amazing food, live music and performances, markets, Garden Games and art into a feast for the senses.

Food Trucks include:

Taste Tours are doing special two-hour entrée tours from 12noon and from 3pm through Liverpool, showcasing some of the city centre’s finest flavours. These tours are for the special price of $55 per person. Book early to avoid disappointment.

It’s Not About The Cars is an immersive performance inviting three audience members at a time to sit in the back seat of a parked car.
