French company Royal de Luxe, the world’s leading street theatre company, is returning to Liverpool for the final part in a trilogy of their Giant Spectacular. Expect giant wooden dolls attracting swarms of people to the streets of Liverpool for a unique story-telling experience, this time with a focus on ‘Liverpool’s Dream.’ There is also the opportunity to explore Liverpool at your leisure should you choose to.
Terracotta Warriors Exhibition
We head to the World Museum for our morning visit to see the extraordinary Terracotta Warriors exhibition. We will be given a glimpse into the extraordinary story of Qin Shi Huangdi, the First Emperor of China. His vast burial site and tomb complex was discovered near Xi’an in North West China in 1974, and since then, archaeologists have unearthed more than 8,000 life-sized Terracotta Warriors near Xi’an – each with individual clothing, hair and facial features. The story of the tomb’s Terracotta Warriors will be displayed alongside important artefacts and research relating to the formative years of the Chinese nation, including a number of objects that have never been on show in this country, excavated over the last 40 years from the Imperial Mausoleum and selected tombs.
On the way to our hotel we’ll visit Chester, where the sights span the centuries. Wander through the streets of black and white timber-framed buildings and double-height shops or visit the remains of the city’s Roman Amphitheatre. Chester has a thriving shopping centre with a host of cafés, restaurants and pubs to tempt you.
