The dock launches free festive events

THIS festive period, Royal Albert Dock Liverpool is pulling out all the stops with a programme of free, family-friendly events offering a series of magical workshops, plus the return of Liverpool’s brightest light trail with two new installations. 

December will see the dock’s Grand Hall transform into a bustling hub of festive fun, with a series of free workshops for both children and adults taking place across the first three weekends. Little ones can even write their own letter to Santa and send them straight to the North Pole by posting them in a giant ice post box on the 17th December. 

Those putting the finishing touches to their Christmas decorations can enjoy crafting their own tree and table decorations hosted by local artist Olga Snell, while budding florists can create their own festive door swag with local florist Pretty Pricks, offering a modern take on the traditional wreath. 

The Grand Hall itself will be given a magical makeover complete with a present drop off point for Radio City’s Cash for Kids charity in ‘Santa’s Workshop’. Dock visitors can leave presents between 5th-9th December from 10-4pm to help Radio City’s ‘Mission Christmas’, which is an annual gift appeal seeking to provide presents for children in need across Liverpool and the North West.

The dock’s light trail returns with two new nautical additions, representing the dock’s maritime history. Joining the illuminated characters of Triton, Neptune, Bella and Bertie is a giant yellow submarine located next to The Beatles Story and a twinkling jellyfish duo in-front of the Martin Luther King Jr. building, nodding to the marine life that frequents the dock’s waters.
