I don't know what's happened with this week and where it's gone because every time I sit down to write a blog I end up getting sidetracked and not posting anything. And just in case it happens again I'm going to post a quick photo from last night's Christmas street entertainment in Liverpool. Hopefully more will follow later.
During Saturday night's On The Waterfront performance, in between the fireworks and projections onto the Port Of Liverpool building, a heliosphere appeared over the crowd with a girl suspended from it and for 10 minutes the crowd were in awe as she floated across them and at times was even lowered enough to reach out and touch their hands. Needless to say, having woke up that morning not actually knowing what in God's names a helliosphere was, the whole thing was a bit special! I don't actually know the individual credits for Saturday's events but it was put together by Walk The Plank for Liverpool City Council.
Last night's On The Waterfront event at the Pier Head was incredible and so I'm interrupting posting up anymore Venice photos with one from last night's finale. As well as projections and fireworks, there was also loads of street theatre so there's going to be a good few postings over the next few days from both this event and the event earlier on in the day at the Albert Dock.
Been away for a week or so but I'm back with loads lined up for the next few weeks but for now here's some more photos from the Samba/Carnival parade from a few weeks ago.
Oh and for the parade's quality control purposes I must point out that the two blokes at the bottom of this post were not part of the official event but joined in at some point when it hit Slater Street/Concert Square but fair play to them as they stuck the distance and were last seen leaving Chinatown gone 10pm looking a bit lost and trying to work out which way the city centre was!
Last night saw the launch of Go Penguin which is the new winter version follow on from last year's Go Superlambanana and this time we're going to have a trail of penguins across the city with a tie in book about Patrick (the penguin of course) to be written by Phil Redmond! More info here.
Walking With Dinosaurs is a multi million pound spectacular featuring life size dinosaurs that will be arriving at the Echo Arena in Liverpool this August. The show, which is being shown in the UK for the first time, has been rehearsing at the Echo Arena before heading off on tour and this morning I got to check out some of the 'live' dinosaurs as they roamed around the venue scaring journasilts and t.v. people.
Morphine are a dance troupe from Liverpool and this was taken after Saturday's Lord Mayor's Pageant when they performed at the top of Church Street and in L1, alongside others, after the parade itself.
More from the Balearic madness that unfolded in Manchester over the weekend and there's even more to follow.
