In July 2014, we welcomed The Giants on their return to the city as three Giant visitors returned to captivate a million people with an incredibly special story. Hailed as one of the biggest events the city has ever staged , for five days, people could talk of little else other than the arrival of a Little Girl Giant, her mischievous dog Xolo and, for the first time, her charismatic Grandmother whose storytelling, spitting and whisky drinking antics won her a legion of fans in Giant Spectacular: Memories of August 1914.

In April 2012, Liverpool came to a standstill when three Giants transfixed hundreds of thousands of people with a story of love, loss and family which unfolded before their very eyes. Relive that magical first visit of The Giants to Liverpool in Giant Spectacular: Sea Odyssey in our gallery below.
