The City of Liverpool Tattoo 2019 - Cancelled
The City of Liverpool Tattoo – Cancellation Statement
It is with great regret that the producer and director of The City of Liverpool Tattoo 2019 has taken the decision to cancel this year’s Tattoo event, which was due to take place on 13 – 14 September 2019.
As a not for profit Company, the organisers were unable to absorb the level of losses they were facing this year.
The event organisers would like to thank those members of the Pipe Band community in North West England and the Flute Band community for their support in bringing the show to Liverpool in 2018. They also thank those customers who supported the event early this year on the back of last year’s show and would ask you to obtain refunds as per the below terms:
Card purchases - You will automatically receive the full amount to the card on which the initial purchase was made – within 7-10 working days dependent on your card provider.
Cash purchases - Please return to your point of purchase with photo ID and the event tickets if you have them, to collect a full refund. Please check Ticket Quarter Box Office opening times below.
Box Office Information:
The Ticket Quarter Box Office is open on Fridays from 9am - 6pm, based at the M&S Bank Arena. On event days, the Box Office opens at midday and remains open until the main act is on stage.
