The Giants Awaken

25 July 2014

The first two days of  Memories of 1914 have been all about observing the art of sleep.  On day three the Grandmother awoke from her deep sleep and has been on walkabout through the streets of Liverpool.

She has been joined by the infamous little girl and Xolo the dog who have all spent the day parading, hitching rides on cars and letting children hitch a ride on them (and catching an afternoon snooze).

Join them this evening at Newham Park for an emotional performance – see their route and timings here.  You can find routes and timings for the weekend here.

See Liverpool Echo’s round up of all your photos and films here.
