Liverpool is a city that’s constantly growing. You’ll never be stuck for things to do when you visit our fantastically varied city region. From the biggest horse racing event of the year; The Grand National at Aintree, to the Liverpool Biennial festival of contemporary art.
We’re pretty well known for our reputation to put on a show. In the past we’ve seen the Giants take over Liverpool’s city centre, thousands lined the streets to welcome the Three Queens for a celebration of Cunard’s 175th Anniversary and every year, people travel from all over come to sample the musical offering of our UNESCO City of Music.
Beatlemaniacs descend on the birth-city of the Fab Four all year round, but especially in August during International Beatleweek, as then Liverpool is a hive of Beatles themed activity and events.
The Echo Arena is a frequent host of world-class music artists, sports and stage shows. Speaking of stages, if you don’t manage to catch something in the West End, Liverpool regularly hosts musicals direct from London’s West End in our very own theatres.
We know you can’t do everything, but here’s Liverpool’s top events that you’ll be sad if you miss out on.
