HAVE A BONZA TIME WITH ROLF

Final month of hit exhibition at the WalkerArt Gallery

The WalkerArt Gallery is celebrating the overwhelming success of the exhibition Rolf Harris: Can You Tell What It Is Yet? with a host of activities as eclectic and fun as the man himself!

From didgeridoo performances to Liverpool Community Choir’s renditions of Rolf classics; from wobble board decorating to perfecting your skills with pastels, there’s free fun for all the family.

Sandra Penketh, Director of Art Galleries said: “Such a successful exhibition deserves a proper send off and we have a fantastic programme of free events for visitors of all ages to enjoy.

“The response from visitors to this exhibition has been overwhelming. We have been delighted to see that Rolf Harris has inspired so many people, bringing new audiences to the Walker ArtGallery.”
