What’s On in Liverpool this September
Whether you’re a fresher keen to explore Liverpool in between the hangovers welcome week will undoubtedly leave you suffering from, a second year ready to experience new findings during your first semester back in this lively city, or a third year aiming to distance yourself from the intensity of the road ahead, September in Liverpool certainly won’t disappoint.
Liverpool Food and Drink Festival: 18th-19th September
Once you’ve dropped your bags and come to the realisation that one person does not need 10 mugs, why not head out to Sefton Park’s Food and Drink Festival. The festival not only has tasty treats and some top bevvies to offer, but Bake Off’s Nadiya Hussain will be demonstrating her baking talents on the Saturday and signing copies of her latest book. While Italian Chef Gino D’Acampo will be hosting cookery demonstrations on the following day. There’s also going to be a chocolate corner for you chocoholics out there – the best kind of corner in my opinion.

Adult Day Pass: £6.00 (£7.50 on the day)
Adult Weekend Pass: £10 (£12 on the day)

Liverpool Comedy Festival: 16th September-2nd October
For the 14th year running Liverpool Comedy Festival is back from the 16th September-2nd October with a whole host of the UK’s top comedians (including scousers themselves of course), bringing laughter to the streets of Liverpool. With 16 different venues ranging from the sophisticated setting of Comedy Central on Albert Dock, to the quaint character of St George’s Hall and the Baltic Triangles’ very own Camp and Furnace, the festival certainly offers something for everyone. Ticket prices vary from venue to venue and it’s advised to book them in advance to avoid disappointment!

Constellations Pizza and Prosecco Fest: 18th September
On the 18th September Constellations is hosting a Pizza and Prosecco Fest – yes that’s pizza and Prosecco, need I say more. There’ll be live music throughout the day for you to enjoy while you’re sampling some of the best bubbles and indulging in a perfect slice or two.
Smithdown Road Festival: 24th September
For one day only, Smithdown Road is transforming into a festival with over 50 different acts spread across 8 different venues. Oh and entry to all shows is entirely free, which is what we always like to hear. With the 86 bus now running 24 hours a day no matter where you’re living in the city you can dance well on into the evening without the worry of a mounting taxi fare.

Sefton Park’s Palm House Cinema
If you fancy watching a film away from the typical cinema setting of the Odeon, Sefton Park’s Palm House may just be the place for you. This autumn a number of screenings are set to take place in this stunning domed venue, starting with Breakfast at Tiffany’s at the end of this month. Be prepared to swap your slush for a G&T and your hot dog combo meal for some restaurant cuisine. Tickets will cost £10 but be sure to keep your eyes peeled with films set to sell out fast.
