Liverpool’s Pier Head Village team has announced the programme of entertainment for when the attraction takes over the waterfront next month.

The action-packed, summer-long programme offers everything from fairground thrills to music, art, culture, food and drink and much more in between.

Brand new this year includes a partnership with Liverpool Sound City and the debut of The Sound City Bar plus a full live music and guest DJ lineup.

There will also be a beach club and restaurant with urban beach and sunset sessions taking place from noon ’til late every other weekend.

Among all of this there will also be a village food court and activities such as total wipeout, ninja warrior and crazy golf.

Martin O’Shea, creator of the Pier Head Village, said: “Bringing people together, entertaining them and giving them a reason to spend many happy hours on the Pier Head enjoying the summer is our goal for this year.

“Quality has been our main priority for this year and as Liverpool is a UNESCO City of Music we have to create something truly special.
