The full programme for the first Big History Festival is revealed today, giving families the unique opportunity to unlock the hidden secrets of Liverpool’s iconic St George’s Quarter during the Easter holidays – kick-starting on World Heritage Day (April 18) right through to April 30.
Formerly called the St George’s Day Festival, The Big History Festival takes place in and around the stunning St George’s Hall and World Museum, celebrating the rich heritage of this historic area with fascinating, brand new exhibitions, talks, heritage walks, and workshops for people of all ages to enjoy.
Among the many highlights at The Big History Festival include the rare unveiling of one of the city’s greatest treasures, the Minton-tiled floor at St George’s Hall, plus the reopening of World Museum’s new-look Ancient Egypt: A journey through time gallery, following an 18-month major refurbishment. The gallery is now the UK’s second largest Ancient Egypt gallery after the British Museum!
The Big History Festival culminates with The Big History Weekend at St George’s Hall – a full two days of stalls, exhibitions and talks from guest speakers inside the Grade I listed building.
“The Big History Festival will have plenty for families, visitors and tourists to enjoy, celebrating the rich history and heritage of the area. Everybody involved in St George’s Quarter has been keen to get involved and we are looking forward to seeing the whole area buzzing with activity this April.”
“Liverpool BID company works to develop the physical and economic environment for doing business in the city and this event will be a key celebration of some of the city’s most loved assets, as well as an opportunity to bring visitors into St George’s Quarter, including Queens Square, St Johns and Williamson Square, for two weeks of family-friendly animation and a highlight in the city’s annual event programme.”
