Music and romance will fill Macquarie Street when the Liverpool Night Markets return for 2015 on Saturday, February 7.

The special focus on all things love is not just about celebrating Valentine’s Day – in fact, there’s plenty for the whole family to enjoy, plus market goers will be asked to write a special love note to Liverpool.

“We are really pleased to be able to bring the popular Liverpool Night Markets back in 2015, something I know many in our community have been hoping for,” said Mayor Ned Mannoun.

“I can’t think of a better way to kick off the new year than by spreading a message of love and friendship at the February 7 Night Markets and to take the opportunity to remind ourselves what it is we love about living here, and reaffirming that together as a community.”
