If you haven’t had a chance to visit this hilarious comedy club yet, you’re missing out big time! Resident compere Paul Smith entertains the crowds with his infectious jokes that usually always come from *picking* on the audience (you’ve been warned!), while top comedians keep the show on the road. They’re holding a number of special Christmas shows in December, check them out here.

You don’t want to miss this!!!

The Winter Arts Market is back at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral for 2018 featuring over 200 independent artists, designers and makers selling everything from photography and clothing to food and homeware. You may just get that Christmas list finished a little earlier this year!


Festive Feeling: 🎅🎅🎅🎅🎅


Crimbo surprises, cash karaoke, blind date, play your cards right and family fortunes. Nan's back and its tacky tinsel galore. This is NOT a pub quiz. This is Ya Nan's Quiz, the Christmas edition. 

Bin worthy prizes, giant inflatables and confetti canons. 


Festive Feeling: 🎅🎅🎅🎅

Has your doggo been a goog pup or bad pup this year? At Liverpool's much loved Baltic Market, there's going to be a Christmas grotto... FOR DOGS.

Good puppers can be treated at this event hosted by Merseyside Dogs Home to some canine treats from a number of stalls and even a photo with Santa Paws himself.

The good news is, you don't have to own a dog yourself to show up.

P.S, did we mention it's fancy dress? All pooches can don their best festive outfits in a dress up competition with all funds raised going towards the Merseyside Dogs Home. 

No booking needed. 


Festive Feeling: 🎅🎅🎅🎅🎅

Grab your mates, family and closest beings for a delicious festive sharing menu inside the cosy surroundings located at the top of Hardman Street. 

This is no ordinary sharing menu, though. This year it's being served 'family style' - which basically means big serving bowls laid out on the table in front of you!

For just £20 per person there is plenty to go around; 12 hour glazed beef brisket & Jerusalem artichoke puree, Rosemary and thyme roasties, Sprouts with maple syrup and pecans to everyones favourite, Pigs in blankets! Veggies needn't worry as there's Wild mushroom puff pastry pie, Baked carrots, parsnips with orange and tarragon as well as Celeriac, cauliflower and black cheddar gratin to satisfy.

The best part? Dessert. Apple, pear, giner and hazlenut crumble or an English cheese board. Perfection.


Festive Feeling: 🎅🎅

  18. Orela
    It's awesome and amazing. My name is Tony Orela am from the United States Getting my husband back is what i least expected and could never imagine. I and my husband have been married for five years and we have been living happily but all of a sudden he changed completely and turned away from me but i never knew what was going on, and i tried to ask him but he refused to tell me what the problem is, and as time went on he sought for a divorce. I was so worried and confused. During my search for a way out, a friend of mine who had similar problem told me about a great spell caster called Dr Uzoya who helped her with her situation. I never use to believe in spell casting in my entire life because i never thought it will work but i tried to give this man a chance and to my greatest surprise Dr Uzoya got me a positive result and he was able to get my husband back to me. After the spell caster did his work, i discovered that my husband fell so much in love with me unlike before. This spell casting isn't brain washing but he opened up his eyes to see how much i love and needed him. Now i am a happy woman again and I don't know how am going to thank Dr Uzoya so i am using this opportunity to tell anyone having similar problem to visit him on his telephone number is +1(301)909-8775
