Mersey River Festival on the Liverpool Waterfront

Top Events

Liverpool’s reputation for putting on a good show is Giant.

Every year, thousands line the streets to see what’s in store. From a massive deep sea diver puppet to three Cunard Cruise Liners dancing on the River Mersey.

2018 will of course be a monumental year for Liverpool. A decade since Capital of Culture. Liverpool 2018 will be defined by a year-long series of unforgettable cultural moments.

Highlights include the Terracotta Warriors visiting the World Museum, Tate Liverpool will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in Liverpool and will welcome two giants of modern art. More on 2018 here.

There’s events going on in Liverpool all day every day. It’s part of what we’re known for. Whether it’s Gymnastic championships or Katy Perry at Echo Arena, a giant Brazilian Carnival or a celebration of Cosplay, we like to host to biggies.

Liverpool is a city that is constantly changing, so there’ll always be something new standing alongside our old favourites. From the biggest horse racing event of the year, The Grand National at Aintree to the ever-changing Liverpool Biennial Festival of contemporary art.

Liverpool International Music Festival, Beatlemania at Beatleweek, the oldest standing philharmonic orchestra - who play Cream classics by the way - West End musicals visit for a stop off at our beautiful theatres, and world-class artists come to exhibit in our many museums and galleries.

We’re very busy, all year round. Best of all, we host these events with PRIDE.

If you’re looking for BIG events, then Liverpool is the right place.
