Play footie with the Liverpool Giants this October

Liverpool FC, Everton Football Club and Tranmere Rovers are joining forces to stage a series of free, football coaching sessions for local school children – with a giant twist.

Hundreds of school children from across the region are being invited to take part in the event, which will mark the return of the Giants to Liverpool for a spectacular farewell performance.

And forget jumpers for goalposts, they will be scoring goals into one of the Giant’s sandals.

Royal de Luxe, the world’s leading street theatre company from Nantes, is returning to its second home for an unmissable show from Thursday 4 to Sunday 7 October 2018.

As part of these unique celebrations, a football themed Giant event will take place on Thursday October 4 at Princes Park where the three local football clubs, Liverpool, Everton and Tranmere Rovers, will be providing free coaching sessions all day.
