Your Liverpool 2019 Calendar: What’s on month by month?

Time to get planning another incredible year in our city and already the diary for 2019 is filling up.

We heard a statistic once that Liverpool as a city holds more gigs, festivals and events per square foot than anywhere else in the world. So with that in mind we have tried to list as many as we can for you in a handy 2019 calendar.

Of course it’s impossible to include absolutely everything but all of the big theatre shows, gigs and festivals that we know about so far are below. If you have an event you’d like us to include in our calendar then email us info@theguideliverpool.com and we will add to it as the year goes on.

But for now start planning, start booking and don’t forget to include time off for the hangovers!
