The Festival and food

Most events are not catered, unless food is specifed. If you are new to a city, finding food can be daunting. There are great places to eat in Liverpool, with incredible cuisines from most nations and across all price ranges. For good areas in which to find a selection of eateries, we recommend Hope Street, Bold Street and Castle Street. A good place to start is Independent Liverpool, which has a great list of independent restaurants in the city.
