The University of Liverpool is celebrating the return of the Royal de Luxe’s Giants with two days of public events on campus that will give a unique perspective on the University’s global contribution to the arts and sciences.
The programme will link to the procession of the Grandmother Giant through the University campus, as well as its return from Newsham Park. Reflecting the theme, ‘Memories of August 1914’, many of the Festival’s events will look at the experiences of the First World War, and conflict in general.
Key events will include :
• The Science of War – A series of family friendly science displays at the University’s Central Teaching Labs
• A unique preview of the newly refurbished Egyptian, near-Eastern and Greco-Roman antiquities at the Garstang Museum
• An insight on the impacts of War from three acclaimed Modern War Poets in Abercromby Square
• An interactive exhibition of the University Dental School’s pioneering contribution to facial reconstruction during the First World War
The Festival, which will also include a range of music and dramatic performances, will run from 11am on Friday, 25 July and from 10am on Saturday, 26 July. Events are free with no booking required.
