10 Reasons to Smile after the World Cup

We dared to dream, we got behind hashtags such as #WaistcoatWednesday and we were sure it was coming home, but it just wasn’t to be.

We’re gutted, but we can’t be down for too long because wait til you see what we’ve got to look forward to this summer in Liverpool. Dry your eyes and get ready to throw some annual leave in because we’ve got more culture, music, amazing food and festival fun than you can shake a shin pad at!

Here’s 10 reasons to smile after the World Cup……..

1 – LIMF 2018

The best value concert in history is just around the corner, so dry your eyes and get your £% advance ticket to LIMF 2018 and see more than 70 acts perform live in the middle of Sefton Park. VIP has sold out already and it’s not surprising when you see the names making a beeline for out city. See the full line up here. 

2 – Love Island Drama

If you’re going to miss sitting engrossed in front of the telly, don’t worry we’ve got the perfect replacement for world cup action, Love Island drama! There’s still loads episodes left and as the islanders test their so called ‘loyalty’ to be crowned winners, we’re hoping for another relatable hashtag….#ThongThursday #FlipFlopFriday anyone? Catch up on all the island gossip here.
