Yoga is on at 9.30am on Tuesdays in Stanley Park’s amazing glass house the Isla Gladstone until 2nd September. Everything is provided by Positivity Inc, you just need to bring yourself along and take some time to limber up & relax.

City Of Liverpool vs Kendal Town – 7.45pm

Why not drop down to a local football game and watch local fan-owned City of Liverpool FC, a.k.a. The Purps, play Kendal Town in the BetVictor National League North West? The match kicks off at 7.45pm at the Berry St Garage Stadium in Bootle. Tickets are £8 on the door with children under 16 going in FREE.

There’s only one thing to do of a Saturday (before the footy, anyway): GET DOWN TO GREATIE and get some bargains! Greatie Market on Great Homer Street opens every Saturday morning 9am until 2pm with the best bargains around. It doesn’t matter what it is, they’ll probably have it in Greatie.

Island Gladstone the glasshouse in Stanley Park is hosting their 10 year anniversary from opening this Sunday. 12pm-4pm, FREE entry. Pairs perfectly with the junior run for a great day out for the family.
