Magic on The Mersey always brings lots of excited Disney fans of all ages down to the waterfront. To ensure everyone has fun, not just the visiting passengers, Cruise Liverpool has put together a brand new programme of entertainment on Princes Parade on Princes Dock. Starting from 3pm and running until Disney Magic sails off up the River Mersey from 6pm, this free to attend event has something for everyone.

From 3pm until 6pm you can expect exciting street theatre and performances. The Adam Brown Dance Company, Movema and Pagoda Arts will be busting some moves while Radio City provides the tunes. There’s free face painting with Fabaroony, a chance to watch Liverpool Hung Gar Kung Fu and hear the beautiful SoSo Choir perform live. We hear there’s also going to be a visit from a very famous face or two. Who could it be?

From 6pm until 6:45pm there will be a very special choreographed sail away concert on the quayside as Disney Magic prepares to set sail once again. Make sure you’ve got your spec along the waterfront and get ready to sing, wave and watch for the confetti cannons!
