Leasowe Castle is set to host Wirral’s Skeleton Coast Festival on Saturday, September 1, adding to its plethora of events offerings.
The 16th century hotel and venue will welcome acts such as The Coral and Tim Burgess & The Anytime Minutes as part of the annual festival, organised by Skeleton Key Records.
As part of its offering, the Castle will be offering a number of accommodation packages comprising bed and breakfast and VIP tickets to the now sold-out festival, which also allow guests to mingle with the bands in the exclusive Turret Suite.
General Manager Mike Dewey said: “We are absolutely delighted to extend our events offering even further by hosting the castle’s first ever music festival this September. Hosted in the venue’s largest event space the Castle Suite, Leasowe Castle offers the perfect backdrop for the musical merriments to take place. With close connections to the surrounding areas in Cheshire and Merseyside, the venue is accessible for those travelling to the occasion and with big names on the line-up we are sure that the day will pull in an impressive crowd.
“We’re looking forward to adding to our portfolio with the addition of festival style events and to welcoming totally new faces to the venue. We hope that this collaboration will see the start of more festival-inspired events, adding to the Wirral’s ever-growing reputation as a vibrant and cultural borough within the North West.”
The venue is a popular choice with locals and visitors alike, boasting an impressive location in the heart of the Wirral peninsula and is renowned for hosting events such as weddings through to corporate conferences to name a few.

Leasowe Castle boasts an on-site eatery in the form of Brasserie 1593 and our recently refurbished Wreckers Bar makes the perfect location for guests to relax and unwind after the day’s festivities.
