Sunday, 19th of March marks Mother’s Day, 2023. For those of us lucky to have our mothers around us, why not treat them to something a bit different this year? Here at Uncover Liverpool, we have compiled five activities that will really show your mum how much you love her.
1. Bisque It – Pottery Painting & Plant-Based Cafe
Bisque It offers a great way to spend time with your mum, while enjoying some relaxing pottery painting alongside food and drinks. Bisque It has two venues, one in Oxton and one in the Baltic Triangle. The Baltic Triangle venue is closed on Sundays, however you can pick up their Mother’s Day Mug Takeaway Kit so you and your mum can paint whenever and wherever you like!
2. Mam-And-Me-Ah! Mother’s Day Brunch
Camp and Furnace are hosting a Mothers’ Day ABBA tribute, including brunch, a live ABBA Tribute Show & 90 minutes of bottomless Prosecco, bottled beer & soft drinks. For all you Dancing queens out there, I’m sure that your mum will thank you for the music and food at this event.
3. Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea at the Mansion House, Calderstones Park
This special Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea at Mansion House kicks off with a glass of fizz (or non-alcoholic fizz) on arrival, alongside a selection of sandwiches and cakes from the award-winning Cuthbert’s Bakehouse (vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available). Victoria Sharpe will be taking musical requests and, as home to The Reader organisation, there will also be a poem recital – plus every mum, or mother figure, is gifted a hand-picked poetry anthology to take home. The Reader also recognises that Mother’s Day can be difficult for some so they are also offering a free reading workshop on their free ways to Nurture and be Nurtured.
4. Songs in the Park – a Mother’s Day Special, Sefton Park Palm House
If you are looking for a free event, then look no further than Sefton Park Palm House. On the eve of the first day of spring join Liverpool Voice Choir and many others as they perform this Mother’s Day special concert. Enjoy the leafy environment away from the city’s usual hustle and bustle. The event starts at 2pm and, although free, donations are welcome.
5. Top Girls at the Everyman Theatre, Liverpool
Does your mum love a trip to the theatre? Then why not take her to see Top Girls, the play about female drive and determination in the 1980s, at the beloved Everyman Theatre. Fantastical and fiercely funny, Top Girls is acclaimed as one of British theatre’s crowning glories. As Caryl Churchill’s ground-breaking play turns 40, it is now more urgent and necessary than ever.
