10 things to do this weekend in Liverpool (4-6 December 2020)

We’re now officially in Tier 2 and shops, restaurants, gyms and more have all re-opened which is as good a reason as any to smile. But if you want any more – here’s 10 things you can do in Liverpool.

Visit Little White Christmas on Allerton Road

If you’re dreaming of a white Christmas then get your skates on to Little White Lies in Allerton Road, the independent restaurant which has transformed itself into ‘Little White Christmas’ for the festive season. There’s a festive food menu, a Christmas themed cocktail list, and Christmas movies along with a festive soundtrack.  If it’s a little bit of seasonal cheer you’re looking for then this has got to be the place to get it.

Calderstones Christmas trail

This is a magical adventure brought to life in one of Liverpool’s best-loved parks. The Reader‘s Storybarn team’s got together with Walker Books to create the Santa Post Outdoor Trail, based on Emma Yarlett’s new picture book which sees Father Christmas solve a festive emergency. Open from this weekend until December 23, you can follow clues and solve mysteries and puzzles along the fully-accessible trail to discover a very special Santa Post-box where little people can to send a letter to the North Pole – and receive a reply from Santa at home.

See the Hope Street sparkle with the new lights and art installations

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and it’s just got even better with the new Hope for Christmas lights trail along the famous city street. Local artist Helen Davies has created light installations in the windows of various venues and businesses with beautiful snowflakes set in never-ending rings of unity, and they’re joined by more brand-new lights featuring trumpet-playing angels between the two cathedrals, delivered by Hope St CIC and Liverpool City Council as part of the Liverpool Without Walls initiative.

Get a photo with the new Angel Wings at Liverpool Cathedral


Liverpool Cathedral has hosted some stunning art projects over the last few years, but the latest one has got to be one of the most beautiful – and perfect for this special season. Angel Wings in the Cathedral’s Derby Transept is a moving light projection artwork and, at shoulder height, the Angel Wings’ feathers pulsate and change colour to a curated soundtrack. Specially-designed for the cathedral, it’s an award-winning collaboration between sculptor Peter Walker and composer David Harper. You can visit for free during its usual opening hours, but you need to book.

Get your game on at ArCains 

Sister site to Punch Tarmey’s in Cains Brewery Village, ArCains has got tons of great games from the past, present – and future. There are dance mats, shuffleboard, pinball and basketball, as well as PlayStation and Xbox games and more, just waiting for the competition to begin. It’s a great day out for you and your household, somewhere you can grab a snack and have fun together – which we all need after the year we’ve had. Admission is simple too with a single entrance fee and then all your gaming for free so, if you’re on a budget (which more of us than ever are this year) you know exactly how much it’s going to cost.

More if on the website here.

Book in to the brand new Boujee Bar 

The new Kenyons Steps bar and restaurant goes from family-friendly in the day to buzzing at night so it’s a really good place for every member of the family. It serves sharing plates and sushi; signature cocktails and drinks, and Champagne – there’s even a VIP and private dining space if you fancy an upgrade. It’s got a convertible pink car, a giant candy area, and themed ‘pool party’ and ‘Alice in Boujeeland’ areas too, so it’s made for Insta pics … and Christmas is all about sharing.

Bottomless brunch at Albert’s Schenke

Liverpool does love a free-flowing bottomless brunch to get its weekends off to a fabulous start and with restaurants reopened, they’re back on. This month, in collaboration with Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza, the bier tavern and cook haus in Hanover Street is offering one of Liverpool’s finest – every day between 12pm and 5pm, you can enjoy endless Rudy’s pizza alongside free-flowing Prosecco, Espresso Martinis, Pornstar Martinis, haus mulled wine and Kozel. Tickets are £24.50 each with bottomless pizza and drinks for 90 mins.

Drinks at the Bar that Saved Christmas as it reopens on Seel Street (Collective)

The Bar That Stole Christmas is returning to Collective on Seel Street and it launches this weekend with “an overload of Christmas cheer”. Expect festive cocktails, your favourite Christmas music and of course plenty of winter warmers to make your tier two night out that little bit more Christmassy.

Day out at Liverpool Museums and get a selfie with Blackler’s Santa


National Museums Liverpool are delighted to have welcomed visitors back and, with measures in place to keep you safe, you can book to visit The Walker Art Gallery, Museum of Liverpool, Merseyside Maritime and International Slavery Museum, World Museum, Sudley House, and Lady Lever Art Gallery. And, while you’re at Museum of Liverpool, why not stop and say hello to a very special fella, Blacklers’ Santa, which was on display at the famous city department store from 1957 to 1988. Time perhaps for a selfie with the big man too?!
