2 years ago
Plan your week in Liverpool with our weekly planner, published every Sunday to help guide you through your next seven days in the city.
It’s the best week of the year if you’re up for the craic with loads of places decked out in green and throwing a big party to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
But if you’re looking for ideas that don’t involve Guinness or you just want somewhere different to take the kids, here are 15 things you could be doing in Liverpool this week (and we’ve sneaked a couple of Paddy’s ones in too!) …
Tom Walker plays the Arts Club
Brit Award winner Tom Walker has had a pretty amazing year, what with new music coming out and a little duet with Kate Middleton, now he’s doing some intimate gigs ahead of his second album and the Arts Club on Seel Street is one of them. This Tuesday from 7pm.
Cocktails at the beautiful Mrs Blodget’s
If you’ve not tried Mrs Blodget’s on Duke Street yet then you really should because it’s a beauty – and they do some gorgeous cocktails. There’s a great list of in-house creations, including four sharers – the fruity gin-based Curious Cat Lap is perfect to get you in a summer’s coming kind of mood.
Cherry Jezebel continues to wow audiences at the Everyman Theatre
It’s the show everybody is talking about and in our opinion it’s a must-see. Cherry Jezebel is on at the Everyman Theatre until Saturday 26 March. Writer Jonathan Larkin told The Guide Liverpool “I call it queer Liverpool with its knickers down. It’s rude and raucous and funny, we’ve got lots of Scouse house classics in there, but hopefully people will come away having learnt a little something as well about what it’s actually like to be queer in Liverpool in 2022.”
Lunch on the go at Pasta Cosa on Castle Street
How does skipping a butty and having some fresh authentic Italian pasta for lunch instead sound? Could be the best idea you have all week. If you’re on Castle Street head to Pasta Cosa and you can pick your own favourite type of pasta, sauce and any meat, fish or veg extras so it’s made to measure. They’ve got ciabatta toasties, pizzas and a kids menu too.
Rain or shine day out at Knowsley Safari, it’s open midweek too!
There’s always so much to see and do at Knowsley Safari, it’s impossible to pack it all in to one visit whether you take the drive or the foot safari to see all the incredible animals. Don’t forget it’s open midweek which is a perfect time to go with pre-school little ones, or just adults, and at weekends the Junior Rangers Kids Club is now back on for 11-14-year-olds.
The Wanted play M&S Bank Arena on Thursday

Celebrate Paddy’s Day at Tres, McCooley’s, Einstein or Pogue Mahone
Paddy’s Day is always a massive one in Liverpool so there’s no shortage of places to celebrate – here’s three to get on your list: Tres cocktail bar is having a free admission party with live music, DJs and drinks offers; McCooley’s in Concert Square and Mathew Street is always brilliant craic and it’s ramping it up for Thursday and Pogue Mahone on Seel Street has four nights of live music and what’s got to be a contender for the best Guinness in Liverpool and there’s a full lineup of great live music at Einstein in Concert Square.
We Will Rock You at Liverpool Empire
Fans of Queen will be in their element at the Empire this week because the fabulous We Will Rock You musical is back out on tour and coming to Liverpool from Monday to Saturday. It’s got a funny storyline from TV writer Ben Elton and a huge 24 Queen hits crammed in there so you can’t go wrong.
Iain Stirling the voice of Love Island plays Liverpool
He’s probably better known to most people for his voiceover on Love Island and guest stints on shows like Taskmaster than his stand-up but Iain Stirling’s a funny bloke and not just on telly. He’s bringing his rescheduled tour, Failing Upwards, to St George’s Hall on Friday and Saturday, 7pm.
Kevin and Perry Night at Camp and Furnace with an Ibiza trance disco and more on Saturday

Explore the history of Scottish pop and rock with a new exhibition at the BME
Remember Midge Ure from Ultravox in the Vienna video, with his trenchcoat on? BME’s latest exhibition, Don’t You Forget About Me, is a celebration of Scottish rock and pop which means lots of memorabilia including that trench, plus Sharleen Spiteri from Texas’s leather Tom Ford outfit, Big Country’s Fender and loads more.
