Easter at Liverpool’s Albert Dock

You are invited to the free Heritage on the Dock event during the Easter holidays

Families and groups of all ages are invited to enjoy the free Heritage on the Dock event during the Easter holidays (from April 5-8), celebrating 172 years of Albert Dock history and heritage with four days of walks, talks, live music and entertainment.

Guided walks under the expert guidance of the Blue Badge Guides and Liverpool City Walks, RIBA and Tate Liverpool are on offer, exploring the Dock and further afield, up to Stanley Dock, the Anglican Cathedral and Liverpool Parish Church.

Back at the Dock, Merseyside Maritime Museum will be hosting fun workshops and storytelling get-togethers for the kids based around the legend of the ill-fated Titanic, while children can embrace Victorian culture at the Museum of Liverpool at the Pier Head, with craft and hands-on sessions devoted to this iconic period in history.

Clare Rawlinson, marketing manager of Albert Dock Liverpool, says: “Albert Dock is 172 years young, with a compelling story to tell. People may think they know all there is to know about the Dock, but Heritage on the Dock will surprise and enlighten all who take part, with revelations about the Grade-listed architecture, the intricate dock mechanics and the unusual wildlife that lives underneath our waters.

“Some of the city’s most treasured cultural attractions, such as Merseyside Maritime Museum, Museum of Liverpool and Tate Liverpool, itself celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, are also getting in on the act with a host of fun and factual events for all ages to enjoy.”
