Liverpool’s waterfront is going to be a hive of activity this weekend, as the On the Waterfront season begins with one of two weekends packed full of free cultural events.

Inspired by nature’s forces of air, wind, fire and water, the events will take place throughout 16 – 18 July and 6 – 8 August across the Albert Dock and Pier Head. People attending both weekends will also be glad to know that the riverside walkway in front of the new Museum of Liverpool will open specially for the On the Waterfront season.

Not only will this allow the public to take full advantage of the entire waterfront, but it will also give people a sneak peak at the new Museum of Liverpool – which opens next year – from a completely different angle in its fantastic spot with great views across the Mersey.

The Merseyside Maritime Museum and International Slavery Museum are also getting involved this weekend, staying open until 7pm on Saturday and Sunday. So after enjoying the outdoor entertainment, take a look around both museums, and be one of the first to check out the brand new exhibition Endurance – Shackleton’s Antarctic Adventure at the Maritime!
