There’s an ice rink, a real ice slide, and the Ice Jet ride, featuring a sound and light show.

It also features a Bavarian food court serving bratwurst, crepes and other tasty treats, as well as an Alpine bar serving up mulled wine, hot chocolate and more. That is down at the Pier Head from now until 3 January.

More details are available on the Ice Festival website.

Originally installed ten years ago, it celebrates Liverpool’s internationally recognised creative expression and influence.

From Darkness to Light

The Educate Awards were held at the stunning Liverpool Cathedral.

A special service is coming to Liverpool Cathedral this weekend - for the first Sunday of Advent - from darkness to light.

At the beginning of the service, which starts at 17:30, the entire building is in total darkness.

Then, the Cathedral is gradually lit as a procession, accompanied by music, slowly makes its way from the Well at the west end towards the east end of the Cathedral.

Bookings are not necessary, though you are required to be seated by 17:20 for the service to be conducted safely.

If you arrive after this time, you will not be admitted until the service is partway through.

More details are available on the Liverpool Cathedral website.
