It’s a jungle out there!
Liverpool is famous for the birds on the magnificent Liver Building, the first ever Skyscraper in the U.K. But there are in fact over 100 Liver Birds in the City. Join us for a lively, fun 2 hour WALKING TOUR safari around the City Centre, starting at The Bluecoat, as we go Liver Bird spotting around town, taking in some of the more obscure birds, finishing the tour in St Nicholas's Church Gardens. Please note seagulls are not Liver Birds, they are a completely different type of creature.
ArtsGroupie are a local theatre company and tickets sold for each walking tour help towards funding their theatre and community outreach work, past productions include, Kitty: Queen of the Washhouse (the story of Catherine Wilkinson from Derry, public health pioneer and the founder of the first washhouse in the U.K in 1842) and The Liver Bird, an outdoor family theatre experience in the parks of Liverpool, Summer 2021.
