As visitors walk through the trail of burning sculptures and garden installations, a mix of fire-themed food and drinks will be available, with everything from wood-fired pizzas and toasted marshmallows to flaming cocktails and chilli hot chocolate.
Walk the Plank producer and co-founder John Wassell says: “It’s an honour to be asked to return to this amazing city as part of its 2018 programme. Walk the Plank have produced a range of outdoor events in Liverpool over the years, so it holds a special place in our hearts.”
The event is based on the tradition in Northern European countries of lighting bonfires over Holy week.
