Giant Spectacular Liverpool weekend in photos

Published on Tue Jul 29, 2014 by

The Giants were back in Liveprool over a brilliant weekend. The show by French street theatre experts Royal De Luxe, featured a return by the puppet giants, which first visited the city in 2012. August 2014 marks the centenary of the start of the First World War – a turning point in world history. In collaboration with 14-18 NOW, Liverpool hosted one of the UK's landmark commemorative events - a poignant and spectacular piece of street theatre saw the giant visitors embark on an emotional journey around the city. We had super weather and I took a tour around town, catching the Giants but also a flavour of the atmosphere in the city centre.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
