Southport’s Bank holiday weekend weather forecast


Over the weekend it will be mostly dry with some light showers on Saturday and Monday. 

On Saturday it will be cloudy with sun coming through here and there until 11am when it will begin to rain until around 5pm when the clouds should subside.

On Sunday it will be cloudy and overcast all day with some sun here and there along with highs of 16°c.

With the weather not being as good as we would have hoped for over the bank holiday weekend here are 3 things you can do whist staying warm and dry.

1. Want to have a laugh? Visit the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club 

The Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club offers a raucous evening of entertainment and brings the best live stand-up to Southport! Comedians off the telly and from such shows as BBC2’s Mock The Week, Shooting Stars, Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats, BBC1’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Have I Got News For You, QI amongst others. In addition to TV regulars, there’ll be comics on the brink of stardom. Previously we’ve booked the likes of Jason Manford, John Bishop and Sarah Millican before they hit the big time. Your MC is Damion Larkin, renowned for being a spontaneous and lovable host. All line ups are subject to change, but don’t worry, we’ll only replace them with someone twice as funny.

Tickets: £15 / £17.50 doors / £40 season ticket

3. Want to learn more about history? Visit the Atkinson Museum

The recently opened interactive museum Between Land & Sea – 10,000 years of Sefton’s Coast displays a remarkable collection telling the story of local history from pre-historic times to modern-day.

The permanent exhibition Discover Ancient Egypt takes you back thousands of years to the time of the Pharaohs, exhibiting an Egyptology collection previously hidden away for over 40 years.

The exhibition spaces features gems from The Atkinson’s permanent collections and we also regularly host touring exhibitions. Artists featured since we have opened include Matisse, L.S. Lowry and Tracey Emin to name a few.
