Liverpool Biennial 2018 Weekend Guide

Sara Jaspan, Exhibitions Editor

Ok; we’ll admit that navigating as large, multi-faceted and action-packed a festival as Liverpool Biennial in just a weekend may sound like a challenge… But it can be done. Here we’ve put together our own specially-crafted itinerary to help you get the most out of a whistle-stop visit. If you’re lucky (or organised) enough to be able to coincide with the Opening, be sure to catch some of the one-off performances taking place on the 14 & 15 July. For a more in-depth look at what this year’s 10th anniversary edition – poetically titled Beautiful world, where are you? – has to offer, check out our full festival guide and top five highlights here.
