Liverpool Gears up for International Mersey River Festival
Date Posted: 29/05/14
For three days in June, the banks of the River Mersey in Liverpool will be even more lively than usual, with the International Mersey River Festival taking centre stage.
Music on the Waterfront will form part of the festivities, which run from Friday June 13th until Sunday June 15th.
If you’re staying in a hotel in Liverpool that weekend, it’s well worth heading down to see what all the fuss is about. There will be tall ships sailing into the city’s port, along with a new Royal Navy vessel, while the Leeds Liverpool Canal will be taken over by a Dutch barge rally.
The Friday night will see a free concert taking place to get all the action underway, with Craig Charles in the spotlight performing one of his soul and funk-based DJ sets.
You can also look forward to a number of Sea Cadet, Royal Navy and Royal Marines displays over the course of the weekend, which will commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Royal Marines.
