If you’re looking for ideas, here are 16 things you could be doing …
Tuck into Greek cuisine at The Monro
Stay cosy by the log fire at one of Liverpool’s most historic pubs, The Monro on Duke Street, and try out their Greek kitchen.

Everyone is talking about Emily’s in Formby
For a gorgeous place that’s not only really pretty but has amazing food and cocktails too, Emily’s ticks all the right boxes. It only opened a couple of months ago but it’s already a massive favourite for breakfast, brunch (it’s French toast heaven!) and lunch – and in the evenings, Wed-Sun, for food or just drinks. More info here.
Fiesta of Fire is back this weekend at the Albert Dock
Fiesta of Fire was absolutely stunning on its first weekend with some incredible fire acts lighting up the Albert Dock and the good news, especially if you missed it that time, is it’s back again for the next two weekends with even more free fire performances from afternoon to early evening.
