Crafts from jewellery to wood-carving; food from artisan bakers to cheesemakers. Previous years have featured dozens of varied artisans involving cakes, furniture, bee-keeping, exotic gifts and much more.

Music

Our stages host a wide range of performers across the weekend,
from soloist to choir, brass band to rock band, child to seasoned musician.

Family Entertainment

Pre-school, primary school or high school, we have activities for everybody. Past years have included inflatables, archery, paint balling, assault course, and climbing wall.

Firework Display

Saturday night finishes with our very own musical light and firework display, themed for all the family.

Formby Festival was created in 2013 to recreate the stunning Formby Shows of earlier years. Hosted in Duke Street Park, it has become a regular part of Formbys summer calendar.

“The 2019 edition is set to be our best yet, with a wide variety of events,” says Formby Festival Organiser, Maria Bennett.

The festival takes place across the 3rd weekend of July, 2019.
