This is a big event, and Liverpool City Council's Culture Liverpool team want to make sure as many people as possible get involved in the run up, during and after the show.
They are working in partnership with other council teams including the school improvement service along with a number of external organisations such as National Museums Liverpool, and Liverpool Primary Care Trust. Working together means an education and participation programme can be delivered which aims to bring together the entire city in memory of the events which took place on 15 April 1912.
Due to illness the performance of Whale Song this Friday, 27th April has been postponed.
The new date (most likely in July) will be announced shortly.
If you have already bought a ticket online, these tickets will still be valid. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with ticket enquiries.
We are sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment and hope you can join us when the new date is set.
A sea story set in a library, a love story cast out to sea. Part 'Jackanory' for adults, part illustrated song - original, live storytelling through narration, live music and animated visuals. An immersive and other-worldly experience.
Presented to accompany the Titanic centenary and Royal de Luxe's Sea Odyssey event.Whale Song offers an alternative view of Liverpool as a city swimming in history and also under seemingly constant reconstruction, through the eyes of two lost souls from different worlds.
Whale Song tells the story of a whale called Lucky, who comes ashore in Liverpool and walks through the city centre in search of lost love…With so many stories stuck in his giant belly, he goes straight to Central Library, where he finds librarian and kindred spirit, Joanne.
They meet after-hours at the library night after night and fall in love. But the library is under threat of closure, so together they devise a plan not only to save the library but to save Lucky from the hands of the Developer.
Lucky was his land name,
Salty to the sea.
Fathom this, he came ashore in Liverpool!
Too big for the docks and warehouses,
bigger than ships or anything here made of bricks:
he came ashore.
A colossus, a sea ghost -
a giant whale.
No tender brought him, nor tail nor tug -
a voice soft and distant sung him up.
