The Liverpool Giants are back and taking over Liverpool city centre and the Wirral for a four day spectacular starting this Friday 4th October at St George’s Hall Plateau at 10am until Sunday 7th October when the Giants will say goodbye at Canning Dock. The main Giant walks featuring all puppets take place on Saturday and Sunday, taking in much of Liverpool city centre. The Big Giants will also take a tour of the Wirral, waking up on Friday morning at Fort Perch Rock, taking a stroll along Marine Promenade and Coastal Drive before stopping for a snooze at Kings Parade. The Giants then wander from The Dips back towards Tower Promenade and Magazines Promenade before joining Little Boy in Liverpool city centre on Saturday.
Lucky Liverpool schoolkids have actually got the day off too this year as this will be the 3rd and final time that the Royal de Luxe giants visit Liverpool, and there are bound to be some surprises in store… Will XOLO return? Will we see some new puppets? Will Grandma impress the crowds with her spectacular farts?
The Giants first visited Liverpool in 2012 and then returned in 2014, so this year will be the final chapter in the giants’ Liverpool trilogy. In 2014 the giants attracted around one million visitors to the city, so expect similar crowds this year for the grand finale. Many roads will be closed as the giants make their 20.6 mile round trip around Liverpool city centre, the docks and the Wirral over the long weekend.
Although many of Liverpool’s hotels will be full, there are still hotel rooms available, although don’t be surprised if they’re pricey – this is a big weekend for Liverpool tourism. However, visiting Liverpool for the day is also a great option, with reasonably priced train fares from Manchester, Chester and Warrington daily.
