How are we heading into September already? We’re making the most of the last week of August this week in Liverpool.
Seriously, wasn’t it just July? With Bank Holiday weekend (what a scorcher) and Creamfields just a distant memory, we’re getting stuck into the last few days of August this week in Liverpool. We’ve got cult TV quiz nights, drag comedy, all the footy action and the first ever Fusion Presents gig at Sefton Park which brings none other than Kings of Leon to Liverpool!
There’s also brand new brunch, food markets, jazz, award-winning art, pink gin tasting, safari fun for the kids and loads more.
