Summer on the Dock


One of the UK's most iconic visitor attractions, Royal Albert Dock Liverpool, has announced an exciting and re-shaped events programme, Summer on the Dock, taking place from 4th August to 8th September 2019.

The innovative event programme will see a host of inspiring collaborations taking place at the Dock, each centred on a floating pontoon which will provide a versatile and unique setting for a range of activities covering film, sports, health and wellbeing, along with a new for 2019 food and drink festival.

Kicking off the summer events programme will be the city's first floating pop-up cinema in association with Independent Liverpool, offering a selection of popular family & nautical themed films like Finding Nemo and Jaws, with day and evening showings from 4-10th August.

Alongside the pop-up cinema, visitors will be able to enjoy food and drink from a mix of Dockside restaurants and bars, which include a collection of Liverpool's finest independent venues.

Children will love the four days of reading story time workshops from 11-14th August. Storyteller Cathy Roberts, from the France Hayhurst Tug, will present two days of Maritime children's stories, whilst Beyond Books will host two days of music, arts and craft sessions.

Health and fitness enthusiasts can enjoy five days of wellbeing activities from 16-20th August. The tranquil setting of the Dockside provides the perfect setting for yoga and Tai Chi sessions, whilst sporting fans will also have the chance to play netball, cricket or table tennis.

Football fans will rejoice with the news that the floating football pitch will be returning for 2019, and available from 23-30th August. Free football coaching sessions will be on offer, already confirmed with Liverpool Football Club Foundation who will be delivering football and multi sports activity, with pitch takeovers and numerous five-a-side games.

The highlight of the events programme will be the launch of the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool food and drink festival, which promises to be a new firm favourite for any foodie. Taking place from 6th-8th September, the festival will celebrate Liverpool's impressive food and drink scene with a weekend of masterclasses, tasters, food and drink demos, along with much more to be announced.
