Two theatres, Everyman and Playhouse, are run by the same people and are situated in two different locations in Liverpool’s vibrant City Centre. So you’ll never be too far away from a theatre! The Everyman Theatre Company is known for taking famous plays like ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and turning it into ‘Romeo and Julius’, or for having a female Othello. These spins on a classic are normally making a social comment and so interesting and entertaining to watch. Tate Liverpool & The Docks Take a trip down to the famous Albert Docks and particularly the Tate Liverpool. ‘The Tate of The North’ opened its doors to the public in May of 1988 and is one of four main Tate sites across the country. The artwork is modern and unusual, and it’s a great place to go and compare the pieces to those of the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, which has more classical pieces of artwork. Whilst around the Docklands you can also take a stroll around the docks themselves and overlook Liverpool’s famous Mersey River. Images: Grace Adele Dutch Liverpool Central Library
