Mersey Ferries has announced its programme of Summer Evening Cruises and Special Cruises for 2018 as the city of Liverpool gears up for a year of celebration to mark 10 years since being European Capital of Culture.

With a year-long programme of inspirational events planned throughout the city, thousands of visitors will also get the chance to experience the city’s heritage on the River Mersey in 2018 with a record number of cruises and activities in this year’s Mersey Ferries programme.

Following the success of last year’s Summer Evening Cruises, another 14 cruises have been scheduled to take place between May and September featuring live entertainment from a range of talented local artists. Running for two hours, each cruise also features a fully licensed bar and stunning views of the Liverpool and Wirral waterfronts for £14.95 per person or £12 for groups of 20 or more.

Visitors will also have the chance to get another taste of Liverpool’s famous Fab Four on the water this year with the return of the Beatles Tribute Cruises in April, July and August. Three fun-filled cruises, priced at £20 per ticket, will set sail with passengers able to enjoy fantastic performances from one of Merseyside’s best cover bands – Paperback Writers, The Beatles Experience.

Gary Evans, from Mersey Ferries said: “There’s a huge focus on Liverpool’s cultural agenda in 2018 – the 10th anniversary year of the European Capital of Culture – so our programme of cruises and events this year has been specially created to help celebrate a really significant milestone in this city’s history.”
