Make the most of warm summer evenings with live music on board a Mersey Ferry. Summer 2019 sees the biggest ever programme of events from the world-famous ferry, with a selection of live bands, tribute acts, party nights and relaxed evening cruises to choose from.

Sail along Liverpool’s iconic UNESCO waterfront as the sun sets around you, enjoying drinks from the licensed bar and snapping some shots of the amazing scenery. The dancefloor deck is open all evening long, so you can grab your pals and throw some shapes, or sit back, relax, and soak up the lively Liverpudlian atmosphere around you.

From The Beatles to Big Band, here are some of this summer’s highlights. Full event listings can be found here.
