Your Weekend in Liverpool – Sep 4th
It is officially the last weekend of the school holidays, however summer 2016 is showing no sign of stopping just yet – there are more events, festivals & gigs in September than new Smiths stationary in a school bag.
There really is something for everyone this weekend in Liverpool, watch your guide to the next few days above and get out there and enjoy!
