What’s on (at home) this bank holiday weekend in Liverpool?
3 years ago
We love a Bank Holiday Weekend – so less of the lockdown and more of making the most of staying safe and having fun at home.
Liverpool Digital Music Festival sees some of the city’s talented emerging artists going strong from Friday and raising fund in the process! EFC Lockdown Sessions is The Blues’ first gig with some brilliant names onboard, while there’s loads to look out for from LCR Pride Foundation – and Hot Water Comedy will happily rip you with their very own roast.
The Baltic invites us to tune-in on Saturday with resident DJs and performers, and if you’ve got kids to keep occupied, you’ll love teepee building with Sefton Palm House. Add to the mix, an incredibly cool virtual bar crawl from One Stop Bar Hop, and we’d say that’s your Bank Holiday Weekend just about sorted!
If there’s anything – and we mean anything – you need at home, from groceries and fresh ingredients, to beers, cocktails, gifts, takeaways, and loads more, find local favourites, with over 500 local businesses taking your orders from our Delivery Directory right here
