The Red Fox Beer Festival - Thursday 9th - Sunday 12th May 2019

The Red Fox Beer Festival 2019

The Red Fox are hosting a Beer Festival from Thursday 9th of MAy until Sunday 12th of May and are promising it will be even bigger and better than last years !

"There’ll be 50 beers on hand pull, plus for the first time, 10 on keg from only the most up and coming breweries and our old favourites (wonder if Brightside Brewery - Odin will be the first to sell out again?!) making an appearance. There'll also be plenty of scrumpy, perry and a gin and fizz bar, along with a face painter and live music for the Saturday and Sunday, and a BBQ as well. Best of all, there’s no charge to get in!"

There will be live music preformed in a heated marquee with proper flooring and plenty of seating so not to worry if the sun doesn't make an appearance!

National B&B Week 2019 - 18th-24th March 2019

Did you know that there are over 20,000 B&Bs in the UK, and that they generate over £2 billion annually to the UK economy? This is something that we think is worth celebrating, that’s why we are participating in National B&B Week 2019!

Mere Brook House has recently celebrated it's 10 year anniversary, and in this past year alone we have hosted countless weddings, celebrations and business meetings and welcomed hundreds of guests, including The Great British Bake Offs Prue Leith. We have also opened our doors to a BBC film crew, who used the house to film a 90 minute drama named "Care" which starred Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman. 

In October 2017 the Mayor of Wirral unveiled a blue plaque in recognition of the incredible Ann Davison, the first female to sail the Atlantic single handed. Ann lived at Mere Brook for four years and the house features in one of her books – in fact she refers to living at Mere Brook as some of her happiest times.

Over the past 10 years we have been honoured to win numerous awards including Bed & Breakfast of the Year and The Independent Business Award at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2017 and after taking a year out we are delighted to be shortlisted at The Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2019 in two categories, Hotel of the Year and Independent Tourism Business of the Year. In 2015 we were shortlisted for The National Tourism awards run by Visit England in the bed and breakfast category. Last year we were also awarded a Special Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor to celebrate 5 years of consistently excellent reviews! 

So from the 18th to the 24th of March 2019 I hope you will join us in applauding all the great things that independent hoteliers contribute to the hospitality industry!

BE PART OF WIRRAL'S BOROUGH OF CULTURE YEAR

logo


I hope you are all aware by now that Wirral is the Borough of Culture for the Liverpool City Region in 2019. This is a relatively new initiative where the spotlight will be put on a different borough of the region each year highlighting existing and new cultural events. St Helens was the first borough in 2018 to lead the way and this year is Wirral's turn.

I am delighted by the amazing programme of events, many of which are new, that are planned for 2019 some of which are listed below - and how amazing it is that Tour of Britain cycle race have also chosen Wirral to be involved in their internationally renowned race.

2019 gives us a real opportunity to showcase Wirral to visitors and put this wonderful place on the map.

There will be many ways that those businesses and organisations involved in offering services and facilities to visitors can get involved and a meeting will be arranged in early March when more of the practical and operational details can be shared which I urge you to attend.

Lorna Tyson,
Chair of Wirral Visitor Economy Network

The first event is 'Animated Square' in Hamilton Square on Saturday 23rd March, for more information see here.
