In April 2012 Liverpool played host to one of the most spectacular outdoor events. It was host to theSea Odyssey. It was a 3 day event to commemorate the sinking of the Titanic and featured giant marionettes roaming the city. Based on a letter sent by a little girl to her father who didn’t survive the disaster. She wandered around the city with her dog looking for her uncle.
I took Olivia over and it was an amazing experience to watch and so many people turned up to see her journey! Ironically we watched the event stood opposite the White Star Line building! I actually got goosebumps thinking that 100 years earlier people were gathered outside the same building for answers and news of their families.
This year the Giants are back! Starting their 5 day spectacular on Wednesday 23th July 2014 with Grandmother spending 2 days asleep in St Georges Hall before the main walking part of the attraction from Friday 25th and this year it will be commemorating the start of WW1 in August 1914. There will be a new story and I will be heading over on sunday to witness the spectacular event once again!
