Even though it feels like someone stole summer while we were loving the heatwave, it’s definitely not over yet with more happening in Liverpool this weekend than ever!

We’re holding on for more gorgeous sun in a week or so, but in the meantime there’s still plenty of things to do around Liverpool, you just won’t get a nice little tan while you’re doing them.

Tickets for the evening performances got snapped up, so well done if you got some but if not there’s still plenty to do at this outdoor cultural event, on until Saturday night. Put on by Imagineer productions, with Culture Liverpool, it’s all focused around a huge broken bridge on Millennium Green (the Rezzy), with free activities, music and dance happening all day from 10-5pm.
