8 Really good, last-minute Father’s Day presents he can enjoy in Liverpool
Lets face it, Dad’s are generally the most laid back of the parentals and we reckon they’d be made up to have a day of peace rather than a load of fuss?

You’ve still got a few days to pick up a suitably funny/sarcastic/sweet card and simply slip some of these event tickets inside to earn some mega brownie points. With more comedy, music and theatre shows coming to Liverpool’s biggest venues than ever before, why not treat your dad to an evening out and a pint this Father’s Day. Job done!
