Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta & The Bordeaux Wine Festival
Part of Liverpool 2018, 10th anniversary of the European Capital of Culture
Linking with Dublin and Bordeaux, Liverpool will play host to the starting leg of the Regatta across the bank holiday weekend. Elegant Tall Ships will line the River Mersey, and areas along the waterfront will pay homage to fellow port hosts – Dublin and Bordeaux. As part of this, the world’s leading wine event Bordeaux Fete le Vin (The Bordeaux Wine Festival) will be located in Liverpool while the Tall Ships are in the city. Perfect for food and wine lovers, this ticketed event will bring the very best of France’s food and drink to the Pier Head and is the first time the prestigious event has ever come to the UK. Renowned artists Faith Bebbington, Lulu Quinn, Wired Ariel and Luke Jerram will be presenting new commissions as part of the Tall Ships festival.
