Monday 3rd June 2019 by BASE Serviced Apartments
It’s June, which means that not only are we halfway til Christmas (yay) but those summer months are finally upon us! With a range of festivals, concerts and a world class art exhibition, there’s so much happening in Liverpool in June. Grab your diary and get planning your month because here’s what’s on in Liverpool in June.
Gaia 25th May – 23rd June
Ever wondered what it’s like to see the whole of the earth like an astronaut from space? Now you can with Gaia. The huge, seven-metre replica of the earth will be suspended in the magnificent Liverpool Cathedral until 23rd June. The installation will give visitors the opportunity to see our planet, floating and rotating in a mesmerising fashion.
Better yet, entrance to the project is completely free and during certain times of the day, you’ll be able to experience Gaia with a specially composed soundtrack. The art work is just a few minutes walk from our Duke Street location, so if you’re staying with us you’re in for a treat. Visit Gaia at day and night to experience the true awe of the installation in both settings.
For a list of viewing times, visit the Liverpool Cathedral website for more information.
Base Top Tip: While you’re at the Cathedral, why not take a trip up the Liverpool Cathedral Tower? Experience staggering 360-degree views reaching out over Liverpool and as far as Mount Snowdon and even Blackpool Tower! (a small charge applies).

Keith Haring Art Exhibition 14th June – 10th November
Whether you’re an art enthusiast or not, you don’t want to miss this! The late Keith Haring was part of the legendary New York art scene of the 1980s, who’s work was inspired by graffiti, pop art and underground club culture.
Haring worked with like-minded artists such as Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and even created record covers for RUN DMC and David Bowie. He directed a music video for Grace Jones and developed a fashion line for Vivienne Westwood. In doing so, he introduced his art and ideas to as many people as possible.
The exhibition, at Liverpool’s TATE gallery, will give visitors the opportunity to witness over 85 of Haring’s artworks. Also on display, are posters, photos and videos that capture the vibrancy of 1980s New York street culture.
Find out more and grab tickets to the exhibition at the TATE website.
