As many of us look forward to half term next week, families are invited to visit Liverpool Cathedral for a series of free events themed around the new Peace Doves art installation.
The artwork, created by renowned sculptor and artist Peter Walker, features over 18,000 paper doves suspended from the roof of the Cathedral, accompanied by a soundscape from composer David Harper.
From Tuesday 1 June to Thursday 3 June, the Cathedral is running free 45-minute sessions featuring bird themed craft activities and the opportunity to view the Peace Doves.
All sessions must be pre-booked and due to current COVID-19 restrictions, only a maximum of 6 people (including children), two households or support bubbles are allowed per table.
As well as Peace Doves, visitors to the Cathedral will also be able to view the return of the popular Angel Wings moving light projection, created by Luxmuralis.
Another new, interactive art installation also going on display is Peace to Ourselves. Visitors will be asked to place a button inside the shape of a giant dove and take a moment to contemplate the past year and remember those who have lost their lives.
Peace Doves runs until August 31 2021, with a series of further special events, including talks, music, yoga and the chance to dine under the doves.
There are also a series of Quiet Hours for those who might find crowds daunting, for example, someone who has an autism spectrum condition or sensory processing differences.
Due to COVID regulations, bookings must be made in advance to view the installation.
