Event details

There has always been a butcher on Highbury Corner, the birthplace of Birkenhead commerce in 1927.

The butchery was one of the first three shops at the commercial birthplace of Highbury, built by local businessman W H Payne.

Grant Wright was an apprentice under the Stott family of original butchers, and now has a vibrant traditional butchery business himself. Children can come along and learn how to make heritage sausages.
