Liverpool on a Roll

Liverpool on a Roll is a new food festival which celebrates the city’s multicultural community, showcasing international bites and beats at the picturesque Greenway Park.

Food stalls will sell tasty treats presented “on a roll”, so visitors can expect to try burgers, banh mi, burritos and much more! There’ll also be live entertainment, giveaways, garden games, market stalls selling seasonal local produce and a pop-up beer garden with Pimm's cocktails.

The event will be held from 5pm - 10pm on Saturday 30 March at Greenway Park, West Hoxton.
