14 things you can get up to across Liverpool this week

It’s only Monday but we’re already free-wheeling towards the long weekend, with half an eye on a big three-dayer.

There’s loads happening in Liverpool this week so ease yourself in to the Bank Holiday with these 14 things to do…

International Beatleweek kicks off

Bands and Fab Four fans from around the world will be descending on Liverpool to celebrate our city’s most famous musical export. Presented by Cavern City Tours, the focus is on live music at various venues including three stages at the Cavern Club and Pub, plus guest speakers and stalls. On from August 23-29.

Get Back to Play – Skiffle Band session at Strawberry Field

Kids can get involved in Beatleweek too and follow in the early footsteps of the Beatles with a visit to Strawberry Field this Tuesday. Families can make their own instruments – drumstick shakers – then join in a skiffle session on the bandstand. All ages welcome and craft supplies will be provided. From 12-2pm.

Everyone knows about the rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester, especially when it comes to footy, and this play has that at its heart. Produced by LIPA graduate Callum O’Brien and written by Nicky Allt, it looks beyond the clashes to find there can be more that unites us than divides us. On Thursday and Friday.

If you’re in town early morning and feeling hungry then head onto Dale Street and fill up with a top breakfast at Baby E. Try The Full Works (or Half Works if you’re not quite sure just how hungry you are!), a choice of Eggs Benny, homemade smokey beans on sourdough or a Mexican-style breakfast burrito.

Gorgeous views and equally great music sounds like the perfect combination – get to The Lake House in Waterloo, overlooking the Marine Lake, this Friday and you’ll find them both at the Sunset Sessions. Enjoy chill-out tunes from DJ Nick Gartland with drinks out on the terrace as the sun goes down.

Tackle a burger in Liverpool for National Burger Day on Thursday

Burgers in Liverpool

Some days you just can’t beat a big juicy burger, and that’ll definitely be true on Thursday because it’s National Burger Day. Liverpool’s got an amazing choice, whether you fancy a meaty one, a vegan or veggie, piled high or kept simple and classic. Celebrate by taking your pick from some of our favourites.

Jamaica Street Carnival Party

Mighty Red Day at the LFC Stadium Tour 

Young fans will have a chance to meet Liverpool’s official club mascot Mighty Red on Friday.

Open Mic Night at The Beatles Story

OK, you might not be quite Lennon or McCartney, or that doesn’t mean you can’t show off some decent vocals at The Beatles Story open mic session on Sunday. The Albert Dock attraction’s also got free craft activities for families during the day, plus a free pub quiz starting at 4.30pm with Beatles goodies for the winners.

Enjoy a Sunday roast at Hawksmoor

Hawksmoor in India Buildings is a steak lover’s dream, and the Sunday roast there is next level. Choose between slow roast rump, started over charcoal then finished in the oven for an authentic spit-roast flavour, or Sunday feasting cuts to share between two.
