Local touring theatre company, ArtsGroupie CIC, returns to Calderstones Park after its recent sold out performance of ‘Kitty from the Washhouse.’

‘The Liver Bird’ is a magical outdoor interactive family theatrical experience combining classic storytelling and puppetry, featuring Calderstones Park’s very old Allerton Oak. Charlie J has heard all about Liverpool’s famous Liver Birds from his Grandma Bailey’s stories. He is fascinated by them. And just when things start to get difficult at school, and just when he needs it most, Charlie J is visited by a very special creature…

Dive into this glorious, modern day fairy tale, shared with the magic of puppets and storytelling. And keep your eyes to the skies!

Suitable for all ages.
This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!

Directed by Margaret Connell Starring Samantha Alton and Tom Browning Tale created by John Maguire adapted for stage by Jessica May Buxton, The Bookworm Players · Samantha Alton is Grandma Bailey/ Miss Button/ Jimmy Ram in The Liver Bird. Tom Browning is Charlie J.
