James Daly, co-owner of Box Yard, said: “The shipping container venue concept has really taken off in other parts of the world so we’re really excited about bringing this to Liverpool.

James is also the founder of Jaly Concerts and puts on huge events internationally, so there are plenty of exciting events in the pipeline.

The venue’s other co-owner, Kev Odger, a top techno promoter and founder of the Peach events brand has a strong reputation for attracting some of the biggest DJs in the world to the city, such as Ben Klock and Nicole Moudaber.

Kev added: “It’s a perfect partnership because James regularly sells out events such as tribute festivals and orchestral rendition events and I can bring some of the best DJs in the world to the venue. Let’s not forget the local talent though — Liverpool is a hotbed of incredible music artists and DJs so we’re looking to give them a platform to showcase their skills too. We’ve had some amazing local acts on here already.”

Box Yard offers live music, DJs and events hosted on Fridays and Saturdays, themed Brunch Parties on Sundays and other regular events such as themed quiz nights on Wednesdays.

Visitors can also take in the stunning views of the surrounding rustic area while tucking into street food such as pizzas and wings and a well stocked pop up bar.
