OFFER: All aboard with 2 for 1 Ferry tickets during Pride

Merseytravel is celebrating being a sponsor of Liverpool Pride for the third year in a row by offering all Pride goers 2 for 1 Ferry tickets from Friday 3rd til Monday 6th August. Those who take the special offer voucher, available in the Liverpool Pride brochure or to pick up from Merseytravel at the Liverpool Pride, to one of the Mersey Ferry terminals in Liverpool, Birkenhead and Seacombe will be entitled to get two tickets for the price of one so that they may take a river cruise and see the sights of Liverpool and indeed Liverpool Pride from the water.

The offer ties in with the festival’s ‘Nautical but Nice’ theme, which was chosen in a ballot by members of the local LGBT community and gives a nod to the city’s commemoration of the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. It also celebrates the city’s rich maritime history, part of that history being the Mersey Ferry itself, and taking advantage of the main festival site, which sits on the banks of the river. 

Merseytavel will also host the festival’s Health and Wellbeing Zone, which is bigger and better than has been seen at Liverpool Pride before. Activities include interactive games where you can race against Usain Bolt, engage with a sports science exhibition, take part in experiments to find out how your body produces power and what to do to beat your personal best. There will also be open Zumba classes for all the family to enjoy! 

Councillor Mary Rasmussen, chair of Merseytravel Corporate Social Responsibility Committee said: “We have been one of the official Liverpool Pride partners for the past two years and we are delighted to be involved again this year. We suggest festival goers enjoy the party and leave their cars at home – they will find a warm welcome across the public transport network. To celebrate the nautical theme we are pleased to offer a special 2 for 1 ticket on Mersey Ferries throughout the Liverpool Pride weekend. We look forward to seeing you on board.” 

The Liverpool Pride festival itself will takeplace at Liverpool Pier Head and in the city’s Gay Quarter on Saturday 4th August.
