Showcasing quality of Mersey
A brand new theatrical experience is taking to the streets of Liverpool this summer. Having being devised by the creative talents at Lovehistory, the Tale of Two Cities Tour will recreate and revisit the humble beginnings of the city.
It presents Liverpool as a city of contrasts and reveals how a quaint fishing village nestled on the banks of the River Mersey became the second city of the British Empire.
This enjoyable, revealing and fun experience traces Liverpool's past through close encounters with the characters and figures that have shaped the city and its identity including the old fish wives of Formby!
Judy McLean, founder of Lovehistory says "Our tours are great as they animate our city with live history and provide fantastic entertainment for residents, visitors and families. They offer a Liverpool experience with a difference and we are very excited about how we can make these street theatre experiences even more exciting!"
Last year saw the first partnership between Lovehistory and the History Department of Liverpool University.
Lovehistory are also currently developing a youth theatre, made possible through their partnership with Neighbourhood Services Company Liverpool, an organisation working in community regeneration and developing opportunities for young people and the Alt Valley Youth Theatre.
