The International Mersey River Festival

June 13, 2014 @ 8:00 am - June 15, 2014 @ 5:00 pm

The International Mersey River Festival, incorporating Music on the Waterfront, is set to return in 2014 with a weekend of maritime and musical entertainment that sits snugly between the first and second weeks of IFB 2014’s Maritime, Logistics & Energy themed business events. For international and UK visitors to Liverpool, this is the perfect opportunity to take time out from work and experience the cultural side of our great maritime mercantile city.

Sailing into Liverpool for the weekend June 13 – 15, 2014 , will be a range of maritime greats and visiting vessels including Tall Ships, Royal and Merchant Navy ships, narrow boats and barges.

Visitors will be welcomed on board to take a tour of some of the ships, participate in have-a-go watersports sessions and enjoy maritime-themed  street theatre and a programme of events and activities including the Mersey River Festival Raft Race, Zap Cat racing and the Liverpool International Canoe Polo tournament.

Complementing the programme of activities on the river will be a weekend of live music as Liverpool’s Pier Head becomes centre stage for an  outdoor extravaganza of musical concerts. Visitors can also visit Liverpool’s wide range of museums and galleries including Tate Liverpool, Merseyside Maritime Museum, the Museum of Liverpool and the Open Eye Gallery.
