Wayne Hemingway MBE said:

 

“This will be the fourth consecutive year that we've hosted an event at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool and each year we fall more and more in love with the place and the people of Liverpool! The beautiful details of the Grade listed architecture perfectly complements the quirkiness and colour of the event, and I believe there really is no better place to throw a free party on a summer's weekend!
