What’s on this week in Liverpool? (9-15 March 2020)


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

We’re on the go this week in Liverpool with an emphasis on action! There’s not only Spring in the air but a sense of nostalgia too, with a Mcfly v Busted theme night, Liverpool band Space bringing their hits back to the city, a line-up including Nelly, Shaggy and Salt & Pepa live on stage, and the chance to relive your heyday at The State!

If you’ve worked up a thirst, you’ll need it for the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations arriving in the city. And if you’re feeling the luck of the Irish, pick your winner’s in The Cheltenham Festival.

Meanwhile, stop for a breather with spectacular light projection The Nightingale’s Song – a 3-night consecutive light show taking place across Waterloo, Bootle and Southport Town Hall this weekend. Photo finish? We think so.

Oh, and did we mention that PETE PRICE IS DEAD!?
