15 things you can get up to this week across Liverpool City Region

We’re heading into March which means lighter nights, brighter days and the start of lots of spring things happening around Liverpool City Region.

If you’re looking for something different to do – especially if you used up loads of ideas over half term – here are 14 things definitely worth getting out for this week …

Mother Goose at Liverpool Empire

Mother Goose

February might not be the usual time for a panto, but this not your usual panto – it’s just finished a packed-out run in the West End, and it’s got Sir Ian McKellen and John Bishop heading up the cast. It’s also scripted by Liverpool writer Jonathan Harvey so you know it’ll be brilliant. On at the Empire from Tuesday to Saturday March 4.
