15 things you can get up to this weekend across Liverpool (10-12 September)

We’re still squeezing out those light evenings for all they’re worth and there’s even a chance that the sun might make a little return.

So if you’re looking for something to do this weekend – with or without the kids – here are 15 things to try …

Reminisce Festival – listen live on In Demand and watch all the action on The Guide Liverpool

If you love your disco floor-fillers (or field-fillers in this case), there’s really only one place to be this weekend – Sherdley Park in St Helens for Reminisce Festival. It’s one of the biggest dance parties of the year and if you can’t get there in person it’s live on In Demand and The Guide so you don’t have to miss out on the fun.

Positive Vibration at the Baltic

It’s all about reggae in the Baltic Triangle this weekend with the Positive Vibration festival across six different performance areas on Friday and Saturday.

Catch Baiana at Ma Boyle’s

There’s a regular Saturday jazz date at Ma Boyle’s now with with live jazz, food and drink, and the great atmosphere Ma’s is known for.

Positive Vibration festival has commissioned a fabulous 7ft-tall statue of reggae icon Bob Marley, created by the same sculptor behind The Beatles statue at the Pier Head.

Watch the footy live at Punch Tarmey’s

After a break for international footy, Premier League matches are back although Blues will have to wait until Monday for their clash with Burnley.

Check out the new exhibition at The Bluecoat

Artists in Liverpool have called The Bluecoat home for more than 100 years, now a new exhibition – A Creative Community – showcases the heritage of artists working in the building, the Bluecoat’s extended family of artists-in-residence and printmaking studios, and there’s a new series of photos commissioned from Sophie Traynor showing the current creatives.

Breakfast at Delifonseca Dockside

One of the best things about weekends is being able to have breakfast without going to work after, so might as well stretch it out in style by heading to Delifonseca Dockside. Go for the full English, beans on the side, with toast and a big pot of tea and you’re all set.

Book a table here.

Step back in time at Speke Hall

Speke Hall makes for a great family day out and if the weather’s nice it’ll be perfect to go exploring in the grounds, and have a try at solving the hedge maze. Two play areas will keep the kids happy and Speke Hall’s dog friendly too. If you fancy going back in time and checking out the Tudor mansion, that’s open from 12.30-5pm.

Book your visit here.

Watch the new Candyman film at ODEON, Liverpool ONE

It’s been almost 30 years since the Candyman first gave us all nightmares now, just when you thought it was safe to go back in the bathroom, there’s a sequel that’s just as terrifying. Get ready to be scared stiff all over again by the hook-handed bogeyman and don’t look in the mirror. AND DON’T SAY HIS NAME!!

Book tickets here.

Go local at Love Lane Brewery

Can there be a better way to support a local business than by drinking beer and gin? Do your bit by getting to Love Lane Brewery in the Baltic. They brew their own beers and produce their own Love Lane gin – and they’ve got a great menu of pizzas and burgers from 12noon so you can make a full afternoon of it.

More info here.

Tuck into a delicious Sunday roast at Jimmy’s Liverpool

A roast isn’t really a proper roast unless it comes with loads of gravy, so if you love lashings of it then you need to try Jimmy’s where it comes in a teapot! Choose from mains of sirloin of beef, half smoked chicken, beetroot wellington or the special, with pigs and cauli cheese sides. 

More info here.

Classic cocktails at Berry and Rye

Do the weekend right with cocktails mixed by the masters at Berry and Rye, tucked away on Berry Street. Give them a knock, walk-ins only, and find your new favourite. Remember to give the Lovelace and the Dirty Martini a try and you won’t regret it.
