This week in Liverpool is jam packed with amazing things to do for you and all of the family.

Heathers the Musical at the Empire

Heathers musicals - The Guide Liverpool

Based on the 80s film starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, this award-winning rock musical version of the American high school dark comedy comes to Liverpool off the back of two hit West End seasons. It centres around good girl Veronica Sawyer who teams up with her sociopathic boyfriend in a plot to kill the cool clique. From Tuesday July 4 to Saturday July 8. Book tickets here.

Gino’s Sky Bar Terrace

The Sky Bar at Gino’s at INNSiDE Liverpool on Old Hall Street already has one of the most amazing views anywhere the city and now it’s even better because there’s an outdoor rooftop terrace overlooking the river. It runs the full length of the 18th floor Sky Bar and is the perfect sunny spot for cocktails while you graze on Italian small plates from the cicchetti menu. Find out more here.

Try the Hawksmoor steak butty on the new lunch menu

The Guide Liverpool

If you fancy something lighter in the daytime than a full sirloin or ribeye, without sacrificing the steak, then the new lunch special menu at Hawksmoor in India Buildings has got it sorted. The exec chef there has found the key ingredient to take an already delicious steak sandwich to the next level – it’s all in the porcini hollandaise! Book your table here.

Alice in Wonderland at the Playhouse

This is Lewis Carroll’s classic with a 21st century Scouse update as we follow Alice on her adventures with a host of familiar, but quirkily different, characters. It’s from the producers behind the Everyman’s rock and roll panto and it’s packed with original pop songs, loads of funny lines and a really feelgood story that’s great for all the family. From July 4 to 22. Find out more here.

Visit Port Sunlight for the perfect day out

Port Sunlight village makes for a fascinating day out – you can visit the museum and find out all about William Lever and his vision for creating a community for his workers, and learn more about the science of soap in the new interactive SoapWorks family experience. Plus, one not to be missed for Peaky Blinders fans, there’s an exhibition on until Sept 10 featuring costumes from the series.

Coffee and cake at the new Bold Street Coffee inside The Plaza

Bold Street Coffee

Bold Street Coffee is always worth a visit if you’re up that end of town, but now you can enjoy it in the business district too. Drop in to The Plaza, off Old Hall Street, for one of their speciality coffees – go iced if it’s a hot sunny one – and a gorgeous slice of cake or a donut.

They’ve got Foo Fighters GB, the number one UK tribute band, playing the band’s greatest hits live all night so it’s the nearest to the real thing you’re going to find. Book tickets here.

This Sunday the Bombed Out Church has got an afternoon performance of Bad Dad telling the funny, frantic tale of Frank and his father Gilbert as they struggle to escape the clutches of the local crime lord and clear Gilbert’s name.

Breakfast at Glass Onion on Allerton Road

Glass Onion isn’t just the Knives Out film with Daniel Craig, it’s also a little gem of a café on Allerton Road specialising in tasty homemade veggie and vegan food.  The cakes, scones and fresh-basked cookies are a thing of beauty all day, up until 4.30pm, but it’s worth getting there early because it’s a lovely place for breakfast or brunch. Follow on Facebook here.
