Get Hopping to National Museums Liverpool This Easter
An egg-splosion of free family fun at National Museums Liverpool will keep everyone occupied during the Easter holidays. Free family events.
Walker Art Gallery
This Easter the Walker Art Gallery is one of four cultural venues across Liverpool included in Liverpool’s Crackin’ Easter Trail, an opportunity for super-sleuths of all ages to get creative, crack the clues and be in with a chance of winning £500 or one of the cultural gifts on offer. The event runs from 3 -11 April 2010
From Saturday 20 March visitors can pick up the trail from either the Walker or Lady Lever Art Gallery as well as the other participating venues.
The trail is also available for download from National Museums Liverpool’s website: www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you have your trail you can earn your stamps by taking part in the free activities and solve the clues inside the four great venues. In addition with every stamped Crackin’ Easter Trail you can gain 10% discount in the participating cafes or shops.
Liverpool’s Crackin’ Easter Trail is an Culture Liverpool and Open Culture initiative. The partner venues are Bluecoat, FACT, Tate Liverpool and Walker Art Gallery.
The Walker Art Gallery is hosting free activities from 3- 11 April 2010. Highlights include:
