Huge event taking place in Sefton Park to celebrate Global Scouse Day
Global Scouse Day will be celebrated this year with a massive party in one of Liverpool’s much loved parks.
The event will take place on Thursday, February 28 – the day we have come to celebrate all things scouse – with live music, local delicacies and entertainment.
Best of all, the party is completely free to attend.
The event takes place in the iconic Grade II* listed Palm House in Liverpool’s Sefton Park .
Kate Martinez, Visitor Experience Manager at the Palm House, said: “Recognising Liverpool ’s proud history and traditions, Global Scouse Day at Sefton Park Palm House is an event for the whole community to come together to enjoy local music, food, drink and good company under the Palm House roof.
“Celebrating all that our city has to offer, our event is one that can’t be missed.”
Renowned Liverpool artists Marc Kenny, Jade Thunder and Redhouse to the stage paying tribute to everyone from The Beatles to Cilla Black and The La’s.

The Homeless Games
The Homeless Games is an event which uses sport to engage people who are homeless, socially excluded, receiving support in any way, to a more healthier lifestyle. As well as sport there is support stalls that offer support and advice.
This year with Brexit we felt it was important to get a message of unity and so came up with the slogan “The Homeless Games: Born in Liverpool, The City Where Everyone Belongs”.
The organisers are planning to launch the timetable of the Homeless Games on Global Scouse Day, by designing a picture frame and asking people to say “Liverpool The City Where Everyone Belongs”.
Scouse Lunch Club @ Heart of Egremont
There will be a Global Scouse Day lunch club at the Heart of Egremont Community and Heritage Centre Guildford Street Egremont from 11am on 28th. This is an easy access centre as well as dementia friendly. Run entirely by volunteers from the community.
