The annual Brazilica festival will once again take over the city for the eighth consecutive year.
UPDATE: Full details announced here
Last year’s festival included a packed programme of events leading up to the main Carnival Day on the Saturday, and this year promises to be just as colourful with an abundance of sights, sounds and tastes of Brazil.
Organisers are keen not to give away too many surprises so soon, but have revealed that the 2015 festival will include a two-week film festival and fringe events packed with great music and exciting activities in venues across the city.
2015 marks the 20th birthday of Liverpool Samba School and the spectacular Carnival Parade which features Samba bands from across the UK and overseas will be the highlight of the festival once more.
Further announcements will be made when entertainment and activities are confirmed.
