Come and join in all the family fun over Easter at
the Albert Dock. We have a programme of street entertainment and
Easter themed fun for all the family, the Albert Dock's
resident Dixieland Jazz Men, The Savoy Jazz Band, will be
performing across the Albert Dock on Easter Sunday.
Join in the fun of our Easter Egg Hunt! Albert Dock Company has teamed up with Quay Confectionary to launch their 2008 Easter Egg Hunt from 1pm till 4 pm on March 15th, 16th 22nd & 23rd. There is also a free prize draw for an 'Eggceptionally' large Easter Egg, donated by Quay Confectionery.
On Saturday and Sunday 22nd and 23rd of March the Dock will be alive with the pitter-patter of giant bunny feet as the Easter Bunny arrives in style, bringing the fun and merriment of spring with him. Albert Dock Company has also commissioned face painters to transform your little ones into any character of their choice, all for free!
All of the attractions at the Dock will be alive with loads of free Easter holiday family fun, offering interactive workshops and performances. Tate Liverpool has an exciting Easter holiday workshop exploring the colourful work of Niki de Saint Phalle, while the International Slavery Museum is holding performances of Destination Freedom, based upon the true story of William and Ellen Craft. Merseyside Maritime Museum is bringing to life the tales from the Titanic - The Quartermaster's Story Robert Hichins was at the wheel when the Titanic hit the Iceberg or you can enjoy the storytelling of The leaving of Liverpool. Over at the Customs and Excise Museum you can discover how Customs protect the environment and make your own eco-friendly vehicle to show off to your mates!
The Beatles Story will be holding their annual programme of Easter events, with the 'I Am The Eggman' trail running throughout the Easter holiday period (15th March - 6th April).
Visitors to the Beatles Story can complete a fun quiz based around the exhibition with a chance for all the family to win some amazing prizes. There's something for everyone with the questions being split into 'soft boiled' (aged 5-11), 'medium boiled' (aged 11+) and 'hard boiled' (adults and Beatles experts!).
The Beatles Story will also be running an exciting series of children's workshops, which will take place on the last two weekends (22nd/23rd and 29th/30th) of March. Based around the ever popular 'Sgt Pepper' album, children will get the opportunity to design and make their own special 'Sgt Pepper' album cover using pictures of their own heroes. All children's workshops are free of charge to Beatles Story visitors on a first come first served basis.
Don't forget to stock up on Easter goodies at the Albert Dock's sweet shop, Quay Confectionery. From organic chocolate bunnies to traditional sugar mice and choco hedgehogs - you're guaranteed to find something tasty!
