If there’s one thing we know how to do in Liverpool it’s to put on a show and one of the best places to head to do that is the M&S Bank Arena! 

From hosting the 2008 EMA’s, to Sports Personality of the Year in 2017, the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 and welcoming stars including Paul McCartney, Beyonce and Kylie Minogue to their stage, it’s the place to go for world-class entertainment. 

2020 might have put a hold on live events but 2021 at the M&S Bank Arena is looking pretty special. We’ve made a list of top events not to miss next year so you can start planning your day out in Liverpool. 

We’ll keep updating this list with new events and dates when they get announced. For more information on the venue’s social distancing measures and purchasing tickets please visit their website here
