Four years ago, La Machine brought Liverpool’s streets to a standstill. And this morning marked the first of three days of Liverpool street theatre on an even bigger scale.

Despite grim weather, tens of thousands lined the city streets to witness to awaking of Giant Uncle, as he began a march through the city towards Stanley Park.

Earlier in the day, Little Girl Giant marched from Stanley Park towards the city, and following another route tomorrow for each of the giants they will meet on Sunday beside the city’s famous waterfront.

It’s the kind of event – involving huge numbers of spectators – that Liverpool tends to do brilliantly and if you’re planning on visiting, you won’t go home disappointed.
