Liverpool’s ‘Celebrating Bold Street’ and ‘Celebrating Castle Street’ events will return this August. After a successful return last summer, the two all day events will be even bigger, celebrating the breadth of local businesses in the city centre, blending food, drink, entertainment, culture, family fun and more

Celebrating Castle Street will take place on Sunday 4th August, with Celebrating Bold Street taking place on Sunday 11th August. Both will run from 11am – 5pm with both roads closed as businesses spread into the public realm. Each street will have a dedicated programme of entertainment and activity to mark its distinctive character.

As a foodie destination, filled with food and drink venues, close to cultural attractions and historic landmarks, Castle Street’s programme will feature a food and drink hub at Exchange Flags with a chef’s demo stage. Partnering with Parentfolk there will be a family friendly sessions area for children including arts, crafts and magic moments. Across the rest of the street there will be music, mixology, and workshops. Busking spots will provide ambience and create a fantastic atmosphere alongside dot-art drawing classes, yoga classes, a mini golf course and more.

Bold Street’s quirky, independent style will be at the forefront with busking spots and a ukulele class. Batala Mersey will provide entertainment alongside stilt walkers. A record fair at the Bombed Out Church will provide a hangout spot for vinyl lovers.

A full programme of events will be revealed in July.

Businesses can email with ideas of how they can take part.

“We were so delighted with the response to last year’s events that the whole team has been thinking about how we can make them bigger and better for this summer. It is such a privilege to be able to spend Sundays enjoying our city and everything it has to offer. There’s still time for anyone who wants to be involved to get in touch and sign up”.
