With Christmas around the corner, you may be wondering how you and your family will stay entertained over the holiday season. This may be particularly true if you’ll have guests visiting for Christmas or New Years.
Luckily, we’ve got the lowdown on all the best local events so you and your guests can #GetChristmassy this year. Here’s what’s on in Liverpool:
Christmas on the Park
Chavasse Park is one of the best places to go if you’re looking for some good, old-fashioned family fun. You’ll find a Bavarian House Bar with hot chocolate and mulled wine, a crepe house, a German swing grill, and more.
Keep the kids entertained with the Santa family roller coaster, Santa’s planes, Santa’s train, elf swings, helter skelter, and more.
Love to belt out a Christmas tune or two? Open Culture and Liverpool ONE are currently looking for performers to help make Christmas even more magical. Whether you love singing yourself or you know a vocal group, band, community choir, or school which would be a good choice, get in touch today.
Give your loved ones a gift to remember this year, and wrap it up with your very own Christmas marbled gift wrapping paper. Victoria Opomu creates marbled papers and products, and she’ll be teaching you how to make unique patterns and design a marbled masterpiece. You’ll gradually learn with A4 and A3 paper before using an A2 paper for your final prints. You can then use your masterpiece to wrap your family’s Christmas gifts this year.
Liverpool Ice Festival
If you and your guests love being outside during the festive season, the Liverpool Ice Festival is for you. At Pier Head, you’ll find a massive 3-lane ice slide, a ferris wheel, an ice rink, Santa’s Grotto, and even an Ice Bar. You can also enjoy the only ice Jet Ride in the UK, along with traditional market stalls and plenty of food and drink.
Brush Lettering Calligraphy Workshop
Have you always wanted to learn calligraphy techniques? This class is for you. You’ll learn exactly how you should be holding your brush, how to make calligraphy brush strokes, and everything else a beginner needs to know. This is a great option for bride’s planning to write their own wedding invitations, or anyone planning to personalise their Christmas cards this year. You’ll also receive a take-home pack with plenty of goodies so you can continue practicing once you get home.
