Liverpool’s ‘Celebrating Bold Street’ and ‘Celebrating Castle Street’ events will return this August. Celebrating city centre businesses, the events feature a jam-packed programme of street entertainment, music, workshops, chef’s demos and more, sharing the unique character of two of the city centre’s most striking streets.

Celebrating Castle Street will take place on Sunday 6 August, with Celebrating Bold Street taking place on Sunday 13 August. Both will see roads closed as businesses spread into the public realm, alongside a programme of activity with businesses showcasing their talent and offer, including demonstrations of favourite dishes, competitions, workshops and family-friendly activities.

Each event day will be open from 11 am until 6 pm, but the fun won’t stop there!
