Family Day

The Armagh Rhymers' Liver bird puppets.
Family Day 21Oct


A Festival-staple and must-see; we invite you to pop-by -or indeed, spend the day with us- at the Museum of Liverpool (Pier Head). There, we’ve a veritable array of activity to entertain kids (and adults) of all ages.

The Armagh Rhymers return with their (exclusive to the Festival) Liver Bird story. We’ll introduce visitors to Little Globy, a carbon boffin-extraordinaire and a global ambassador for green action. The Bolger-Cunningham Dance School will give it their all in the morning, before the George Ferguson School for Irish Dance team up with Melody Makers, to produce junior and senior dance sets.

There’ll be craft workshops in education spaces and Irish Trails through the Museum’s collections, led by volunteers from the Liverpool Irish Famine Trail (bookable separately). Visitors should also watch our for photo opportunities with Brave Maeve and creator Stu Harrison.

The day puts the Irish of Liverpool at the heart of everything; the programme, the Museum and the city.
