All of the things you can do this weekend in Liverpool (3-5 September 2021)


September’s here which doesn’t just mean kids back at school, we also still get a few more weeks of the nice long summer days and evenings to look forward to.

Better make the most of them, so here are 14 ideas of things to do this weekend to get you out and about …

Southport Food and Drink Festival

This one’s a good one to jump on the train to, then you can enjoy a few of the drinks traders as well as the foodie ones. There’ll be lots to choose from including prosecco cocktails, Peroni cocktails, Pimm’s, Southport Ales and Welsh craft cider as well as some non-alcoholic ones. It’s at Victoria Park from Friday (2-8pm) to Sunday (10am-6pm) and admission is free. 

Last chance to see BrickLive Ocean at Knowsley Safari

Take the kids on the BrickLive Ocean trail at Knowsley Safari and they can spot 28 life-sized ocean creatures all made from little bricks. More than 1 million bricks have gone into making the animals that are dotted around the Foot Safari, everything from an African penguin to a giant Orca whale. Be quick, though, because it ends on Sunday.

Electronic Sound Summit 

If you’re a fan of electronic music then this weekend’s Electronic Sound Summit in the Baltic Triangle is one for you because it’s a two-day celebration of electronic music culture. There’ll be masterclasses, Q&As and panel sessions covering things like music management and setting up a label plus a line-up of talent including Liverpool’s Lauren Lo Sung. Venues include District and 24 Kitchen Street.

Ben Fogle is on at the Phil

This Friday telly adventurer Ben Fogle is coming to Liverpool to share some of his amazing stories. As well as writing 10 best-selling books, he’s climbed Everest, swum with crocodiles, dodged pirates and walked to the South Pole so he’ll have no shortage of things to talk about. Feel like we might have to drag ourselves off the sofa for this one.
