With a student population of over 60,000, Liverpool is an incredibly vibrant city with so much going on. If you’re one of the many students staying in Liverpool over the summer months, you won’t be disappointed in the city’s offering of events.
The Strawberry Field gates which were made famous by The Beatles’ classic “Strawberry Fields Forever”, are set to open for the first time to the public in 2019 with an exciting new visitor centre. The project, which is being run by The Salvation Army, will welcome guests to the brand new Strawberry Field site telling the story of its connection to The Beatles and how John Lennon came to write the famous song. Complete with a cafe and tranquil gardens to explore, it will be the perfect place to relax and soak up all the Beatles history. The centre will also be helping those in the local community, offering sustainable employment for young people with learning disabilities, providing training, skills and work placements.
Liverpool FC’s Anfield Stadium will play host to a series of huge concerts in 2019 for the first time in 10 years, welcoming some of the biggest acts in music to the pitch. British boyband Take That, American rock band Bon Jovi and international pop star Pink will take to the Anfield grounds in June to perform some of the biggest gigs Liverpool has ever seen. We are sure this is just the start of some big stars arriving at Anfield and is the combination of two of Liverpool’s greatest expertise; music and sport.
The Royal Liver Building, one of the city’s most iconic buildings, is set to open a brand new 360 Tour and Experience in Spring 2019. The tour will include a new lower ground visitor centre with amazing pieces of the building’s history on display and a trip to the 10th and 15th floors to enjoy spectacular views of Liverpool. To top it off there will be an exciting digital audio visual display inside the iconic clock tower. This is an experience not to miss in 2019!
Liverpool’s trendy Baltic Triangle is set to be the home of a new multipurpose music, arts and eating space made from repurposed shipping containers. The shipping container village, which will be known as Content, will house everything from vegan friendly restaurants, wine bars, design studios, record shops and plenty of other local independent businesses. Content is expected to expand across 2019 so keep checking back for more updates on its developments.
Along with all of the festivals happening across the city, throughout the summer, Liverpool is the place to be.
