Family Day

Family Day 30Oct

Our Family Day has become a Festival-staple and must-see. Call down to the Museum of Liverpool (Pier Head), to witness all kinds of Irish culture, often with a spooky twist!

We will have the ever-spectacular mummers, the Armagh Rhymers as well as Gael Linn/An tUltach commissioned storyteller Nuala Monahan, telling children’s stories. The George Ferguson and Bolger-Cunningham Schools for Irish Dance will run exciting demonstrations. There’ll be something new to see, on the hour, every hour, with a last act at 4pm. Our Board members will run a stop-in session, throughout the day, for budding Board-wannabes, of any age. Alison Little (artist) will provide a fun, free children’s art activity, linked with Samhain/Hallowe’en (11am-1pm, 2pm-4pm).

The day puts the Irish of Liverpool at the heart of everything – the programme, the museum building and the city centre. Call in or stay all day. Link up with the Pride of Sefton dock tours; go on the self-guided Irish trail (around the Museum) or simply sit and watch as the fun unfolds in the atrium.

For a full breakdown of the activities, check back closer to the Family Day. We will upload everything we have here.

The Family Day is sponsored by Tourism Ireland and held in partnership with National Museums Liverpool. As part of the Family programme, you might also like the Samhain Céilí (Sun 31 Oct).
