We are proud and priviledged to present you with Liverpool Loves 2016 This annual celebration was borne from our love of the Liverpool region. A region that is steeped in history but not defined by it, a brave and bold people full of character, honesty, humility and personality. A city that has surpassed all expectations to become one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking around.

well as our fantastic independent businesses. It serves to employ locally, give work to local companies and support the visitor economy. We’re now an award-winning festival too - having achieved the Best Tourism Event at the Liverpool City Region Awards 2016. Thanks to you for making it happen!

It’s a beautiful place to live, work, do business, explore unique cultures, visit for the weekend or stay for the rest of your life.

It’s a platform for anyone and everyone to get involved and get behind their city. We want you to welcome this festival, embrace it and make it your own. A special thanks to the amazing people and organisations that have funded, partnered or contributed to this event, it couldn’t have happened without you.

So on that note – we wanted to create a series of events that knits all of these amazing things together to really showcase what we have to offer here and to represent the new identity of our great city region. Liverpool Loves serves to champion arts and culture organisations as

A drum circle is a free-form drumming event which is entirely improvised in-the-moment music making. Drum Circles are not restricted by background, age or nationality but are a cross cultural platform for connection. We’ll have over 200 instruments and will be drumming down the sun at sunset!

Indulge yourself in a traditional Indian head massage, reiki, mini treatments, essential oils and a range of other holistic treatments. Discover the hilarious, age old Indian tradition of laughing yoga. This is a brilliant session that really gets your endorphins up - and is sure to put a smile on your face!
