Thousands enjoy the BOXPARK Liverpool opening weekend

BOXPARK Liverpool, the award-winning food and entertainment venue, officially opened its doors to the public on Friday 19 April and hosted a weekend full of food and world-class entertainment enjoyed by over 2,500 from across the city.

Celebrations kicked off with a VIP launch night on Thursday evening with performances from Rebecca Ferguson, Mic Lowry, Aystar, Femme Fatale and some of Liverpool’s hottest DJs. The star-studded night was attended by local businesses, MPs and celebrities including World Champion boxer Natasha Jonas and stars from Love Island and Geordie Shore.

Speaking during the VIP launch night of BOXPARK Liverpool, Rebecca Ferguson said:

“I think we can all agree this place is going to do wonders for Liverpool and the Baltic Triangle – I feel very lucky to be the first Scouser to perform here and it’s time to throw a proper party tonight. BOXPARK is investing more than £5m into this venture and standing here I can just feel how special it’s going to be for our city.”

Also commenting on the launch night, Simon Champion CEO at BOXPARK Liverpool said:

“It is an important moment as we celebrated the launch of our first venture outside of London. We have been welcomed with open arms by the city and we look forward to continuing to bring world-class entertainment to the city of Liverpool.”

BOXPARK Liverpool officially opened to the public on Friday with a secret unannounced gig from The Mysertines Liverpool’s hottest alternative rock bands on the scene. The night also included talent from both near and far with performances from The Cheap Thrills, Ant Chandler & Tom Rogan.

The energy showed no signs of stopping on the Saturday with headliners Girl’s Don’t Sync, Mele and Enzo is Burning keeping the crowds pumping.

The opening weekend came to a close with the In Demand Radio family festival, which combined the freshest hits, R&B and old skool anthems with food from the 8 traders on site.

BOXPARK has agreed a 15-year lease with Cains Brewery Village and will focus on championing local independent businesses, through its extensive food and entertainment offering, investing more than £5m into the Baltic Triangle and expecting to bring 150 new jobs to the local community.
