14 things you can get up to this weekend in Liverpool (24 – 26 June)

After so many massive concerts in Liverpool already this month, we’ve got some serious Glastonbury envy going on now.

But if you’re missing out on camping and soggy sleeping bags (obviously it’s forecast for rain) and Macca on the main stage, there’s still loads going on closer to home – and you’ll skip having to queue for dodgy loos.

Here are 14 ideas of things to do in and around Liverpool this week …

David Bowie Untold Orchestra at Camp and Furnace

Camp and Furnace

The Untold Orchestra nights at Camp and Furnace are all pretty special, especially if you’re a big fan of the artist being covered, and this one on Friday should be incredible. Celebrating the iconic back catalogue of Bowie, the Untold Orchestra will perform an orchestral version of some of his greatest songs with special guest singers.

Book your tickets here. 

Visit Zenn, brand new on Victoria Street and one of the best rooftops in the city!

This weather totally says rooftop bar, and now there’s a new one in the city centre to try. Zenn on Victoria Street has got a great menu of Asian-inspired dishes, it’s a perfect place for drinks and dancing, and on the rooftop it’s serving iced coffees, cocktails, chilled wine and an all-day BBQ menu which includes grilled halloumi, corn with chilli butter and lemon and garlic king prawns.

Heebie Jeebies on Friday

If you’re out in town on Friday night and fancy some live music, get over to Heebies and head down to EBGBs because they’ve got a fantastic line-up of Liverpool-based bands on. Psychedelic rock band The Ivies are headlining, but doors are from 7pm so get there earlier and you’ll catch support from Mossley Hillbillies, Dr Orange and soul funk band Talkfield.

Experience a hilarious disco wonderland as Mam I’m Ere continues at the Royal Court

Guaranteed to get you laughing and up dancing to 70s hits all night, Mam I’m Ere is like Mamma Mia but in reverse, in a Welsh caravan park instead of a Greek island … and minus the ABBA! With a cast of familiar Royal Court favourites, it follows Sally as she tries to work out from her dad’s dating past who her real mum is. On from this Thursday until July 16.

Liverpool Soul Weekender

Liverpool Soul Weekender

If soul is more your thing, then this weekend is a biggie – the Liverpool Soul Weekender is on from Friday to Sunday featuring a huge line-up of international DJs, including the legendary Ruben Molina, and Cameron Thompson, Akrol and Ambitious Outsider over from LA for the event. At Metrocola on Friday, District on Saturday and Melodic bar on Sunday.

Steak night at Marco Pierre White’s – and it’s got amazing deals on

Steak lovers probably don’t need telling how gorgeous the cuts are at MPW’s Steakhouse Bar & Grill inside Hotel Indigo but now you can get a great deal on them too. Marco’s is offering 50% off its entire a la carte menu at lunchtimes from Monday to Thursday, and 25% off food bills in the evenings, Monday to Sunday until the end of July so now’s definitely the time to make a steak night date.

See Singin’ In the Rain at Liverpool Empire

For a feelgood musical that leaves you singing all the way home, you can’t go far wrong with Singin’ In the Rain. Strictly’s Kevin Clifton leads an energetic cast in this five-star production, set in the glamour of the 1920s as silent movies are about to become talkies and Hollywood is going to change forever. The set looks stunning – and there’s 14,000 litres of water on stage every night!

Enjoy one of the best breakfast menus in the city at Espresso Plus on Rose Lane

Espresso Plus is a real little gem in south Liverpool, especially if you’re out early and looking for somewhere that does a really decent breakfast, served all day. They’ve got a big menu of breakfast classics, including a traditional, veggie and vegan full English, and a whopping Almighty English if you can handle it. There’s eggs Benny and a choice of savoury or sweet buttermilk pancakes too.

There’s a Dog Social at Phase One


If we had our way, all events would be based around dogs, but until then Phase One on Seel Street is doing its bit with a Dog Social this Sunday, all day. It’s got a super-dog friendly beer garden so it’s the perfect place to take your best mate for a beer and a puppucino. Okapii Pet Co. will be there as well so you can get them a little pressie while you’re at it.

Alma De Cuba hosts Gospel Sundays

For a lovely Sunday lunch with something extra, it’s got to be Alma’s Gospel Sunday. It’s already a beautiful looking place, inside the historic old church, but on Sundays you don’t just get great food, you also get Gospel singers to raise the roof and fill you up with good vibes while you eat.

Tuck into the new Neon Jamon on Smithdown Road

Anyone still missing Neon Jamon from Church Road will be glad to know it’s found a new home not far away, on Smithdown. For Catalan-inspired small plates, tapas and a lovely laidback atmosphere you can’t beat it and it’s got a choice of sangrias and cava for the full summery hit.
