In my Liverpool Home

Things are about to become gigantic in Liverpool.

To commemorate the sinking of the Titanic a century ago there will be "Sea Odyssey Giant Spectacular" in which a 30 foot girl and her 50 foot uncle will be walking the streets of Liverpool in a magical tale of love, loss and reunion (according to the Sea Odyssey website). The event starts at 9:30am Friday 20 April 2012 and runs through to Sunday 22 April 2012 at 2pm. There is also a festival at Stanley Park.



In the 1990s, I worked in Albion House, Liverpool (which were formerly the White Star Line offices and where James Bruce Ismay, the President of the White Star Line and Titanic survivor had his office). Sadly, the building is now abandoned and falling into disrepair.

If you live anywhere near Liverpool, you should check it out.

Might check that out next time I'm in Liverpool. Love the trailer, btw- it's like something out of one of your stories. :)

Would if I were there - looks fab. I will be there briefly in June so I guess I'll miss it ...

Wow! Wish I could be there.

Won't be around - but I'd love to be checking out the Olympic village in Stratford :) I can only dream.

It's only happening this weekend, Simon. (Unless of course you're referring to Albion House, which isn't really worth checking out at all).

Ooh, why are you here in June, Simon.

I wish you could be too, Tony

I suspect there are only two people who read my blog who would be able to see the event, Kim :D

Captain Smith was from Stoke-on-Trent, you know. You launch 'em, we sink 'em.
