Family Fun – Easter at the Albert Dock 2007

Apologies if this reads like an advert, I only had time to copy the press release.
Anyway the point is, make the most of the weekend, got to The Tate, Site, the liverpoolgallery.com space and the 50 Parr St exhibition all at the Albert Dock.
Then search for easter bunnies or whatever…

Fantastic Family Fun – Easter at the Albert Dock

Whether you want to burn off those Easter eggs or hunt for some more, be entertained by glam rock stilt walkers and giant Easter bunnies, explore your family tree or enjoy some of the best modern art in town – the Albert Dock is the place to be for all the family this Easter.

Vertically endowed glam rock sensation, Prince Mint and The Glam Chops will be rocking the Dock over the Easter Weekend (Sun 8 – Mon 9 April). With their sparkling 1970s style glam rock outfits, giant platform shoes and electric guitars, this trio of stilt walking street entertainers will serenade visitors with their rocking rainbow rhythms!

There’s a giant Easter bunny at large at the Albert Dock – can you spot it? From Sat 7 – Sun 8 April the Dock’s very own, larger than life Easter rabbit will be let loose. But can you and your family find it?

Satisfy your chocolate cravings with the Albert Dock’s FREE Easter Egg Hunt. Guaranteed egg-tastic fun for all the family from Fri 6 – Mon 9 April. Pick up your Easter Challenge sheet from participating shops and attractions, get your compass at the ready and start choco hunting!

Face painters will be on hand all weekend to get you in the Easter mood. From bonnets and bunnies to spring flowers or spring chicks – pick your design for FREE. You’ll find our Easter face painters outside the Albert Dock’s Granada building from Fri 6 – Mon 9 April.

There’s even more free family fun in store at the Customs and Excise National Museum this weekend. Kids can search the Museum’s ship to spot signs of smuggling. Find a clue and you’ll win an Easter treat! The Easter Rummage takes place every hour from 12.30 – 15.30 on 8 and 15 April.

Share memories about family members and Liverpool in ‘Homes, Histories and Hearsay’ – a new project at Tate Liverpool.
