The world-famous Cirque du Soleil is coming to Liverpool on their brand new UK arena tour this August. The show is a celebration of nature and co-existence with a fun-filled production of over 50 performing artists from 17 countries! The show’s theme (OVO) which means “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colourful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement.

With elite performances from world class acrobats, this is a spectacular and memorable event for the whole family. Find out more and grab your tickets here. Looking for a place to stay right next to the Echo Arena? Take a look at Base Apartments Docks location.

Red Bull Drift Shifters 19th August

Calling all Piston heads! Arguably one of the biggest, loudest and most precise motor sports events to ever hit the UK – Red Bull Drift Shifters is coming to Liverpool this August. Drift Shifters is an event like no other. It takes the world’s best drifters, put them on a custom track on the streets of a city and rig it with high tech speed and proximity sensors. Drivers will show off their skill, speed and precision as they manoeuvre their way around the features right next to the crowd and all in the shadow of Liverpool’s iconic Liver Building.

With Liverpool being the home to many scenes in past Fast and Furious movies, what better place to host such an event? For tickets and more information, visit here. To stay with Base over the weekend, view our range of city centre apartments here.
