Sundays are my favourite day of the week. I love making the most of them. I’ll either get up and out first thing, or I’ll have a lazy morning followed by a day out. I like to end my week on a good note, which is why I love making Sunday plans.
On the last Sunday of every month, for the rest of this year, I have something fun for you to do. The famous Bombed Out Church in Liverpool city centre is playing host to the Bombed Out Market. The Bombed Out Market is FREE to enter, and is open from 11am – 6pm.
This market first launched in March of this year, and will run for 10 months. Each month represents a year from the last 10 years since Liverpool was named Capital of Culture in 2008.
Liverpool, A City Of Culture
The bombed out market is just one of the city’s main events happening throughout this year to mark our 10th anniversary.
Since the Capital of Culture title was awarded to us the city has boomed. Liverpool has always been a wonderfully cultural city, with a constant buzz about it, but nowadays even more so.
There are so many more independent businesses opening up, and more and more high profile events are being hosted here. It’s no surprise that Liverpool was voted third place in Trip Advisor’s Best Destination in UK poll. We only narrowly missed out to two other big capitals, London and Edinburgh.
If you’re looking for a good city break, then Liverpool is your destination. On the few days you’ll visit, there will be always things to see and do.
Heading to the Bombed Out Market is a great way to get to know what the city has to offer. You’ll mingle the stalls of independent sellers, in a historic site.
The Bombed Out Market
St Luke’s Church, also known as the Bombed Out Church is a city landmark. It was bombed during the Blitz of WW2, and only the outside walls remain. It is a site to behold.
I’d highly recommend paying the small donation entrance fee and taking a look inside.
The market actually takes place in the gardens surrounding the church, these are free to enter. You will find a range of stalls from food, to jewellery, to house hold items.
Get Mooching at the Market
It was just lovely to be out and about in the city and to see lots of different people enjoying the market.
Due to its brilliant location there were people there from all over the world that had come for the weekend. They got 2 for 1 really. They got to visit a historical part of Liverpool’s history, and shop from local businesses in the process.
This coming weekend is the next Bombed Out Market, and it’s set to be a lovely day. There are new and regular stalls at each market. You can keep up to date with who will be there via the Bombed Out Market’s social media pages.
If you’re looking to see why Liverpool was named Capital of Culture, and in my eyes still is, then this is your perfect event to head to. It’s a mix of new and old, and offers up Liverpool on a plate.
Will you be heading there this Sunday? Or will you try and make one in the coming months? Let me know and I might see you there!
