Plan your week in Liverpool with these 13 things you can enjoy in the city.

Blood Brothers continues

It’s like they’re going for a world record on standing ovations at the Empire at the moment, because there’s a massive one for every performance of Blood Brothers. This production has been getting five-star reviews so if you’ve not been for this run yet, don’t miss Willy Russell’s musical, on until Saturday.

Another one to get on your to-do list, especially if you’re looking for something free to take the kids to. There are 10 different illuminated artworks on the theme of Unexpected Twist, dotted along a 2k route which covers the city centre and the waterfront. They’ll be lit from 5pm-9pm every night until Sunday.

Get away form it all at Calderstones Park

The historic 94-acre open space, which boasts ancient megaliths, and the 1000-year-old Allerton Oak is always a great place to get away from it all without having to travel too far outside town.

Watch the ducks and geese on the pond or wander through the Japanese Garden and forget the outside world for a while.

Tuck into an Honest Burger on Bold Street

Sometimes, only a really big burger will do … and if that’s how you feel, head to Bold Street and get your fix at Honest Burgers. There’s a choice of free range chicken, beef, vegan or vegetarian so everyone’s covered, all served with homemade rosemary salted chips, slaw or salad.

Sunday roasts are back at the Watering Can

One of the best things about autumn is that roasts are back on menus, and that’s good news if you’re a fan of the absolutely delicious one at The Watering Can in Greenbank Park. The set menu has starter, main course and a beer or glass of wine for £27, but make sure you book because it fills up fast.
