Southport Wedding Festival

6 October 2019

Show Information

Join us for a brand-new kind of wedding fair at FREE ENTRY ‘Southport Wedding Festival’ on Sunday 6th October at the Waterfront Convention Centre Southport.

Working in collaboration with a number of hotels in Southport, we are putting on a wedding fair with a difference as we are promoting not one, but 5 Southport hotels – Bliss Hotels (and no, we haven’t bought our own hotel!), The Vincent Hotel, Clifton Hotel, Scarisbrick Hotel and Prince of Wales Hotel.

The festival will be held at Waterfront Convention Centre and will feature showcase areas for each hotel, alongside 40+ exhibitors, a festival food area, live lounge, catwalk shows and workshops.

There will also be a tour bus at the end of the festival, 3pm, which will take visitors for a show-round of each of the 5 hotels involved, where they will have various rooms dressed for ceremonies and receptions…. and to make it even more special, there will be a ‘Treasure Hunt’ of clues to pick up at each hotel to win prizes such as Afternoon Tea, theatre tickets, a meal for two and an overnight stay.

As with all our venue wedding fairs, we will be providing a wide choice of exhibitors catering for all budgets and all types of weddings – traditional, alternative, same-sex marriage, renewal of vows, retro, hipster, rock n roll, boho – everyone is welcome and it’s FREE ENTRY FOR EVERYONE!

* Goody Bags

The goody bags are free to every bride or groom who attend the show; however over the next 12 months we are raising vital funds for Ronald McDonald House Liverpool and have pledged to raise £2,000 in total ending with our director Joanne running the London Marathon in April 2020, therefore we are asking for a small voluntary contribution to be made for the goody bags of £1. Everyone who makes a donation will be entered into a draw to win 2 x VIP tickets for The Liverpool & North West Wedding Show 18/19 January 2020.
