Summer on the Dock


Location:Albert Dock

Date:4 August - 30 August


This summer we have an exciting and reshaped events programme, Summer on the Dock, taking place from 4 August to 30 August.

Enjoy 4 weeks of exciting events and activities centred on a unique floating pontoon surrounded by an amazing mix of Dockside restaurants and bars, friendly attractions and welcoming museums and galleries. There really is something for everyone here at the Dock and with the addition of this exciting 2019 events programme you won’t want to go anywhere else this summer!

What can you expect:

  • Floating Pop-Up Cinema in association with Independent Liverpool from 4 – 10 August
  • Reading and Storytime workshops with Cathy Roberts plus music, arts and craft sessions with Beyond Books from 11 – 14th August
  • Health & Well-being activities including yoga and Tai Chi plus the chance to enjoy a range of sports including cricket, table tennis and netball (with professional coaches from Netball England) from 16 – 20 August
  • The return of the popular floating football pitch offering free professional coaching sessions from 23 – 30 August

June will see Tate Liverpool launch its newest exhibition, the first UK solo show of American artist Keith Haring. Haring’s vibrant, colourful work is known as much for its political activism as its iconic style, taking inspiration from street pop art and underground club culture to create work that includes the barking dogs and radiant babies that we know so well.

We also have even more exciting new openings this summer including Maray which is set to open its third Liverpool site joining our Dockside restaurants and bars. The new Maray will join an exciting food and drink line-up currently taking shape which has seen a number of independent operators open over the past year! These include Lunyalita, Rosa’s ThaiRough Hand Made plus the exciting Barrie Brothers’ new restaurant which will open later on this year.

We look forward to welcoming you for a summer of fun, food, film, and family fun! Keep social with us @theAlbertDock to keep up to date with exciting news from us here at Royal Albert Dock.
