Spring Festivals 2007

Liverpool Beer Festival

Offering a choice of over 200 beers, this excellent annual beer festival is always worth a visit, although it is becoming increasingly difficult to get a ticket.
The rather unusual location for the festival is the crypt of the "cathedral that never was". Edwin Lutyens' 1930s design for an enormous catholic cathedral for Liverpool was far too ambitious for the funding available at the time (He appparently envisaged construction taking two centuries, like medieval cathedrals.) and construction halted at ground level in 1958.
