What’s on this week in Liverpool? (10 February-16 February 2020)


This week in Liverpool is looking romantic and there’s lots to do in, and around the city.

Ah, love is in the air as we answer the call of Cupid this week with so much to love coming up! 

If you’re a sizzling single, make the story of how you met that little bit different by mingling at indie markets, finding true love over some killer karaoke or following your heart and falling for hot disco action. Ding-Dong.

Meanwhile, couples can look forward to romantic moments with vow-making Valentine’s menus  at some of the city’s most chic and unique restaurants offering specially created courses and celebratory drinks for two…and remember, if your true love happens to be your bestie – book that table because great mates conquer all!

Whether you’re all loved up or all loved out, Liverpool really is the greatest love of all. We feel a song coming on…
