International Mersey River Festival
The River Mersey is not just any river, it’s the beating heart of a truly special city that has been at the forefront of innovation for three centuries. Liverpool’s evolution has developed around the Mersey which opened as a gateway to the world in 1715 and positioned the city as a major player in the UK and beyond. Since, Liverpool has evolved and redefined itself as a city at the centre of digital, creative, musical and economic innovation.
The International Mersey River Festival is a celebration of our glorious waterfront in a FREE three day extravaganza of family fun, amazing music and entertainment along our iconic river. At the 2016 event we really made waves with an incredible musical line up gracing three stages along the ‘front, a host of creative workshops and entertainment for the whole family. For the first time we also provided visitors with the opportunity to discover Liverpool’s glorious history, incredible present and dazzling future with an interactive treasure hunt around the UNESCO heritage site.
