What's On in Liverpool
The Nadler Liverpool hotel is situated in the centre of Liverpool’s authentic, urban cool RopeWalks village, near to the Liverpool One Shopping Centre, Echo Arena, Liverpool Docks, Anfield Football Ground and amongst some of the trendiest restaurants, bars and clubs in the city.
With train times just over two hours direct from London Euston, there has never been a better time to visit the city.
The RopeWalks, part of which lies within the UNESCO World Heritage site, is home to much of Liverpool’s history and culture, including the oldest Chinatown in Europe, FACT and the well-known entertainment areas around Concert Square.
The RopeWalks, like London’s Shoreditch or New York’s Meatpacking District, is Liverpool’s Design Quarter, where you will find an eclectic mix of old and new, traditional and modern.
Most of all, the RopeWalks enjoys what Benji Lanyado, writing in the New York Times, described as “that most heady of urban ingredients: an edge".

Collabro with very special guest Lucy Kay: 16th February
Liverpool Philharmonic Hall - 36 Hope Street, Liverpool L1 9BP
Britain's Got Talent 2014 winners Collabro will be joined for this show by very special guest and runner-up Lucy Kay.
Collabro, the English musical theatre boy band, took the Britain’s Got Talent judges and viewers breath away with their renditions of classic tracks throughout the TV series. Michael Auger, Richard Hadfield, Jamie Lambert, Thomas Leak and Matthew Pagan only formed a month prior to their audition for the show and came together over their shared love of musical theatre.
In February their lives changed forever when they performed Stars from Les Misérables and received a unanimous standing ovation from the judges and audience at their first audition in London. Collabro progressed to the final of Britain's Got Talent and were cast the winners in front of 11 million viewers. They have since signed a record deal with SYCO Music and will be releasing their debut album in July.
Joining them on stage in Liverpool will be Britain’s Got Talent runner-up Lucy Kay. The Glasgow based opera singer stunned the judges and audience with her performance of Vissi D’arte at her own opening audition, and finished second with her rapturous and heart-felt performance of Nessun Dorma.
