Countdown to Black Friday one of Liverpool’s biggest shopping events!


The culture of shopping has well and truly taken hold in Liverpool city centre as the Black Friday shopping countdown begins and already many outlets are preparing for the event which inaugurates the Christmas shopping season and features big discounts.

The celebration of the so called Black Friday originated in the US, but has understandably taken hold in many EU countries.

Sales are expected to reach somewhere in the region of well over a few million pounds with stores promoting the event over just one day or a weekend.

This is one of the years major shopping events with big discounts for bargain hunters coupled with magnificent city entertainment.

The big difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is that the Black Friday event was designed to get shoppers out and at the stores, physically, as opposed to the Cyber Monday which was designed to promote online purchasing, and if following the original idea, Black Friday is, of course, on a Friday, while Cyber Monday, is on a Monday, usually following after the other.

8,000 was the number of televisions sold in Asda stores in the first hour of trading in 2014.

Strangely, Asda is dropping Black Friday, having been originally responsible for introducing the discount concept from the USA.

Some companies have readily embraced the concept while others have been quite opposed. But, whatever your view, Liverpool has one of the best shopping venues in the country with a wide range of Christmas entertainment to keep both you and the family entertained in and around our busy streets.

Have a stress-free Black Friday and enjoy your shopping weekend!

John Godber’s ‘Poles Apart’ Nov 24th at 7.30


If you enjoyed ‘Bouncers’ as much as I did then you will thrill at this little gem being offered at the Capstone tonight…and it’s FREE!

Enjoy a free performance from the award winning play-writer John Godber with his new comedy ‘Poles Apart’ play, which is being staged as part of Liverpool Hope’s Cornerstone Festival.

This play is a fast paced humorous take on culture, class and theatre, professionally performed at the Capstone Theatre tonight at 7,30pm by one the country’s most professional teams in acting.

The play centres on the class and cultural clashes that happen when a team of scaffolders come into contact with a group of thesps.

Well, meet Phil, Fat Glen and Polish Jan who are on task and finish as they deliver a breathless rant on life, art and sausage sarnies in a desperate effort to mend a leaking roof.
It seems it’s never over till the fat man sings!

Theatre should reach out to people where they are, but what happens when they just aren’t interested – find out what happens and how they mangle their way through a labyrinth of personal views when you visit the Capstone tonight.

Sparks in the Parks – Bonfire Night in Liverpool 2015


5th November Fireworks Displays

This year two displays will take place in Sefton Park and Newsham Park – and will start at 7.30pm and be synchronised to music and will last around 20 minutes. We’ve been promised some Uptown Funk and a bit of Let It Go from Frozen for the little ones.

These events are hugely popular, so we’d advise travelling either on foot or on public transport and leave plenty of time to get there on time.

Remember, Remember – important information

  • It can often be cold in the park so don’t forget to wrap up warm and plan your visit.
  • The parks can be pretty muddy, so make sure you’re wearing suitable footwear.
  • Dogs can often be frightened of fireworks and displays so please leave them safe at home.
  • Please don’t bring your own fireworks, sparklers or Chinese Lanterns as they can be dangerous in a crowd of people.
  • If you need any travel information or advice – please visit

Sefton Park information

There is limited accessible parking at Croxteth Drive, Sefton Park.  Due to significant road work disruption at the junction of Smithdown Road, Ullet Road and Greenbank Drive we encourage you to leave your cars at home as delays are expected. The event organisers would urge anyone going to Sefton Park  to walk around the park to the review field and to avoid the café area in the centre of the park in order to avoid congestion and delays.
