Celebrating the start of autumn in Liverpool

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Liverpool set to come alive this weekend with the return of the Liverpool Night Markets and the CBD Exposed Urban Youth Music Festival

Macquarie Mall is set to come alive for the CBD Exposed Urban Youth Music Festival on Saturday 5 March 2016.
A range of performers from the Street University will take to the stage from 6pm and there will be a free screening of the family favourite, Monsters University from 8pm.
“If you like urban dance you won’t want to miss the amazing performances by the Street University crew,” said Liverpool Mayor Ned Mannoun. “These guys and girls really know how to move.”
“There will be an outdoor screening of Monsters University, as well as free popcorn, prizes and other giveaways, so bring your picnic blankets and rugs and settle in to the lawn at Macquarie Mall for a huge night of free entertainment.”

“On the same night we will also be hosting the Liverpool Night Markets at nearby St Luke’s Church.”
“We are doing everything we can to activate the night time economy of our CBD and provide opportunities for local young people to express their artistic talents through music and dance,” said Mayor Ned Mannoun.
The Liverpool Night Markets are back – and they’re set to be bigger and better than ever, thanks to their new home at historic St Luke’s Church in the heart of Liverpool.
“I’m very excited about the re-launch of the Night Markets, which will have a medieval theme,” said Liverpool Mayor Ned Mannoun. “The kids will love the Danelaw Medieval Fighting Society, who will be doing live fighting demonstrations, and there will be a medieval banquet and lots of free entertainment for the whole family.

“The Night Markets have outgrown their original home in Macquarie Street, where they operated successfully since May 2014. Instead of being held on a monthly basis, they will now be held quarterly on 5 March, 4 June, 8 October, and 10 December 2016,” said Mayor Ned Mannoun.
“This is a fantastic development for our city – St Luke’s Anglican Church is right next to Macquarie Mall and Westfield so it’s the ideal venue for this event.
“The church was built by Francis Greenway in 1819 and is one of the oldest in Australia and it still has a central place in Liverpool’s past, present and future.”
“The Night Markets have been a great success at activating Liverpool’s night time economy. The new location is only going to make our city even more vibrant at night.”
“There is ample parking available at Westfield, Bathurst St North and Liverpool Plaza and it’s only a short walk from Liverpool Station,” said Mayor Ned Mannoun.
“I am also very much looking forward to the medieval theme. So come along and enjoy a fabulous variety of street food, live music and family entertainment.”
