Get ready to discover 10 things to do in Liverpool in April. Finally, Boris Johnson has eased lockdown restrictions in England and allowed us all to dine al fresco, catch up within a bubble, and support local Liverpool businesses. Now shops are back open, restaurants and pubs can serve us outside, hairdressers and salons are able to make us look human again and spas, zoos, and theme parks are open for business, we can start to have some fun.

Or, we might find ourselves locked in again!
