12 things you can get up to this weekend in Liverpool (14-16 January)


There’s loads happening across Liverpool this weekend that you can get involved in.

We’ve actually made it to halfway through the month that always feels like it’s about 100 days long and that’s got to be worth a bit of a trip out to celebrate.

The weather’s looking decent and there’s plenty on in Liverpool whether you fancy indoors or getting out and getting some fresh air.

Here are 11 things happening in Liverpool this weekend …

David Bowie celebration Camp and Furnace

Camp and Furnace

It would have been the 75th birthday of the absolute icon David Bowie, so Camp and Furnace is celebrating the king of glam rock with a night dedicated to his music this Friday. There’ll be all the hits, visuals and videos plus a live band and themed cocktails. And they’d like you to dress up too so get working on that lightning bolt make-up.

50% off mains at Marco Pierre White (and try the new vegan dishes too)

Marco Pierre White Restaurant Liverpool

If you’re in the mood for eating out, and love a bit of a bargain, then head to Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill because they’ve got a January sale on. You’ll get 50% off mains up until this Sunday if you book in advance. And don’t worry if you’re not a fan of steak because there’s new vegan winter specials in collaboration with Redefine Meat.

Les Mis at the Empire

One of the most amazing shows you’ll ever see, French Revolution musical Les Misérables is back by popular demand for another stint at the Empire and it’s as brilliant as ever with a new staging and massive songs like Bring Him Home and One Day More. There are no shows on this Sunday, but two on Saturday and it runs until Saturday January 24.

Watch Boiling Point at the Everyman Cinema

Liverpool Gift

You pretty much can’t go wrong with anything that Stephen Graham’s in, and you definitely can’t with this one-take British drama all set in the kitchen of a top London restaurant on ‘magic Friday’, the big one just before Christmas. Stephen plays head chef Andy Jones who’s under growing pressure from all angles, especially when health & safety turn up.

Classic Rock show at the Philharmonic

Anyone into classic rock bands like Led Zep, AC/DC and Dire Straits should get themselves to the Phil on Friday or Saturday night for the Classic Rock Show. It promises huge back-to-back anthems all night, played just like the originals live on stage, building up to a phenomenal guitar dual finale.

Brunch at Lock and Key Bar, Hotel & Kitchen

Now all the Christmas dinners and parties are done, it’s time to get back to enjoying some really nice brunches at the weekends. Lock & Key on Duke Street has its brunch menu on from 8am right through to 3pm including gorgeous full English/veggie and vegan breakfasts, eggs benny and breakfast burritos.

Cast play O2 Academy

Liverpool music legends Cast are celebrating 25 years since the release of their incredible debut album All Change with a live gig on Friday night where they’ll be performing it in its entirety – and you get a set of greatest hits in there too. This gig was originally due in October 2020, then May last year, so this should be third time very lucky.

Wedding Open Day at The Venue and also at The Reader

Couples planning their big days (or maybe really hopeful singles!) can have a shufty at what’s out there and get loads of ideas at the Wedding Open Days at The Venue at the Liver Building on Sunday, from 12pm to 4pm, and at The Reader in Calderstones Park, also on Sunday, between 10am and 4pm.

Scouse Sleeping Beauty at Royal Court

Coming up to the last chance to catch a panto if you didn’t manage it before Christmas, and the good news is the Royal Court has extended its run of Scouse Sleeping Beauty until January 29. If you’re looking for lots of daft jokes and live music – and a night out that’s definitely not for the kids – this could be the one.

Jazz Saturday at Ma Boyle’s

Ma’s, just off Water Street, is the home of Parrjazz on Saturdays with a line-up of fabulous live music talent. This Saturday it’s gypsy jazz ensemble The Manouchetones bringing sounds of 1930s Paris to Liverpool. There’s food on until 10pm, and you can book a table online to make sure you get a good spot.

Sunday roast at Il Forno

Got to love a whopper of a Sunday roast, especially when you don’t have to do the washing up after. Il Forno on Duke Street’s got a delicious Sunday roast menu where you can choose from beef sirloin,
lamb shoulder, porchetta or half chicken, plus the dessert of the day, or if you can’t decide then there’s a sharing board for two.

More info here.

Winter walk around the Speke Hall grounds

If you want somewhere really lovely to go for a walk, get all wrapped up and head to Speke Hall gardens and woodlands where you can spend ages wandering and exploring, looking out for the birds (robins love it there!) and just making the most of being out in nature. It’s snowdrop time of year too on the south lawn.
