Giants puppets return to Liverpool for the last time

Εκατοντάδες χιλιάδες άνθρωποι συρρέουν για να τους δουν!

Μια διαφορετική παρέλαση είχαν την τύχη να παρακολουθήσουν  όσοι βρέθηκαν στο Λίβερπουλ, καθώς… μαριονέτες-γίγαντες είχαν «καταλάβει» την πόλη. Συγκεκριμένα η θεατρική ομάδα «Royal De Luxe» διοργάνωσε για μια ακόμα χρονιά τη σχετική εκδήλωση, η οποία προσελκύει εκατοντάδες χιλιάδες ανθρώπους που επιθυμούν να θαυμάσουν αυτές τις θεσπέσιες και εντυπωσιακές κατασκευές.

 

Thousands of spectators are lining Liverpool’s streets as huge puppets stride through the city in a street theatre festival.

Known as The Giants, the over-sized marionettes have returned for a third and final time.

Previous visits in 2012 and 2014 attracted six-figure audiences and led to millions of pounds spent locally.

One spectator Lewis, 10, who was watching at St George’s Plateau, said: “It was epic! Mind blown!”

There’s something about the Giants that brings out the child in you, whatever your age.

When the live music struck up to signal that Little Boy Giant was about to wake up, gasps and cheers rippled through the hundreds lined up outside St George’s Hall.

Magical, mesmerising and epic were words used as the city welcomed back the much-loved marionettes for the final time.

While the Giants rest at Princes Park this afternoon, there are a lot of smiles spread over the faces of those who saw them stroll past this morning.


One of the Little Boy Giant’s sandals was used as a goalpost during a football coaching session for schoolchildren at Princes Park, in an event involving Merseyside clubs Liverpool, Everton and Tranmere Rovers.

 

A huge butter knife that appears to have split a bus in two outside Lime Street Station and a large fork in a car roof outside St Luke’s Church wowed many passer-bys.

Meanwhile, a giant raft appeared at Canning Dock on Liverpool’s waterfront.

The spectacle has been arranged by French street theatre company Royal de Luxe.
