Folk Festival on the Dock: What’s On For Families

Folk Festival on the Dock kicks off this bank holiday weekend and while there are tonnes of amazing acts performing in some unusual venues until the early evening, there’s also loads of fun to be had by the kids during the day. 

The Albert Dock will be the destination for a great day out this bank holiday weekend and to make planning your day easier we’re rounded up all the info you need in one handy guide.

Get Creative

Explore Tate Liverpool with a whole host of fun, creative activities including the Sunday Comedy Club, where families are invited to bring along ideas which can be shaped into acts of poetry, singing or stand up! Educators and comedians will be on hand to help you develop your performances. More info here.

Join a summer of creative craft fun inspired by tales of Titanic, fearsome pirates and monsters of the deep at Merseyside Maritime Museum.

Maritime Museum - The Guide Liverpool

Commissioned to mark the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic, Titanic & Liverpool: The Untold Story is a compelling exhibition that explores Liverpool’s central role in the Titanic story that will capture the imagination of even the youngest visitors.

And if that wasn’t enough sticking and glueing for your little ones , how about creating colourful crafts inspired by the International Slavery Museum’s exhibitions in the free fun family workshops? More details available here.

Bust Some Moves

The Beatles Story is hosting a mega quiz in their Chill Out zone, so how about heading on down to bust some moves and test your knowledge with the kids? The workshop will run between 2 and 4pm on bank holiday Monday. More info here.

Ziferblat coffee shop is hosting ‘Folk by the Minute’ and what better way to chill out with a coffee, let the kids play board games and boogie on down while you take in a live gig? All the details here.

Take in some stunning choral performances and jaunty sea shanties and let your little ones dance like no one is watching. The full line up for Folk Festival on the Dock is available here.

The Guide Liverpool - Mattel Play

Burn Off Some Energy

Ok so not all kids are arty or like The Beatles (the horror!) but dont worry there are plenty of other activities to get involved in, including the traditional fairground rides at Hartley Quay, the grassy bank behind Mermaid House is ideal for a kick around or kite flying, and of course there’s the brilliant Mattel Play where Thomas and Friends, Bob the Builder and Fireman Sam are all under one roof. More info here

Refuel

There is so much choice for family dining at The Albert Dock, whether its fish and chips on the grass or making your own pizzas at Gusto, there is something for everyone. Smugglers Cove has a great ‘Little Buccaneers’ menu as well as donating a 25p from each meal to Alder Hey! More information on Albert Dock restaurants and bookings here.

We hope you have a fab bank holiday weekend at Folk Festival on the Dock. Look out for our Tom filming all the festivities and send us your selfies on twitter, @TheGuideLpool
