What’s on this week in Liverpool? (16-22 December 2019)


It’s the last full week before Father Christmas tries his best to get down your chimney, so of course there is lots to do in Liverpool ahead of his arrival.

If you aren’t feeling festive just yet then don’t panic, this week in Liverpool is more Christmassy than ever with tonnes of things for you, and all the family to get up to.

We have got mass Christmas karaokes, German Christmas Market, movies inside our most beautiful building, and you can even be transported back to the 1940’s for A Very Vintage Christmas on Exchange Flags.

So get the tinsel out, throw a load of pigs in blankets in the oven and get set for the week before Christmas in the greatest city on Earth.
