Taking place from 9am to 5pm on Saturday 2 July, Liverpool MakeFest is an annual one-day art, science, digital and technology fusion festival that takes place throughout the library. It includes exhibitions, demonstrations, debates, workshops, and hands-on activities which aim to introduce people of all ages to how science, technology, engineering and arts and crafts are shaping our world.

This year, there will be inclusive and free fun-filled family workshops and showcases, covering topics from 3D printing to knitting and robots to rockets - Liverpool MakeFest will be bursting with activities across three floors, breakout rooms and even on the outside and upper terraces of Liverpool Central Library.

Organised by teams of volunteers and the local ‘Maker’ community it attracts innovative makers, creative and visual artists, electronic engineers, musicians, crafters, and hobbyists from all over the UK eager to share their skills, expertise and knowledge. 

Since its creation in 2015, Liverpool MakeFest has become the place to hook-up, network, brew ideas, co-create and include the whole community in demonstrations and opportunities to try things out and be inspired.

Although the event is free, booking a ticket is recommended. For all the information and to secure a ticket, head to
