What’s on this week in Liverpool? (3 February-9 February 2020)


Everything you need to know about this week in Liverpool is here.

What do you get if you cross Mardi Gras masquerades with Donkey Kong, the Prohibition, a safari bus and Bob Marley’s 75th birthday? This week in Liverpool – that’s what!

Ideas are getting bigger and brighter when it comes to knowing how to enjoy yourself and if you don’t believe us then you try explaining the birthday, paint and masquerade parties dotted throughout the week, or sit down and spoil yourself with some of the incredible menus coming fresh out of the kitchen at some of the city’s best independents. 

And with live entertainment arriving from the West End and festival circuit to keep us out ’til late there’s no excuse not to get your February diary buzzin’ to be in the world’s best city.
