Knowsley IS Borough of Culture 2022

Knowsley is the Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture and will celebrate with a year-long programme of events and activities – from art and theatre to comedy, dance, food, sport and much more.

2022 is Knowsley’s year and it promises to be a special one!


Coronavirus continues to present ongoing to challenges to the delivery of events across the UK.

To ensure the safety of everyone attending, and delivering, the events organised as part of Knowsley’s year as the Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture, organisers will continue to monitor and respond to national COVID-19 guidance.

Organisers are working closely with the local public health team and will continue to provide the most up to date advice and guidance as possible for all events.

Those attending events should check this website and national guidance provided on before taking part in any of the events or activities planned.

Let’s all work together to make Knowsley’s year as Borough of Culture a great one and a safe one too!
