About this Event

During this February half-term, Monday 17 February to Friday 21 February, join our Education Team for dove-themed activity sessions. The activities are part of a new and exciting art project with internationally-renowned sculptor and artist Peter Walker.

Children accompanied by their parents or carers can write messages of hope, peace and human dignity on the paper doves provided. Each family-friendly session is free and lasts around 30 minutes. The doves you and your children help create will form part of ‘Peace Doves’, a mass participation art project culminating in the creation of a beautiful large-scale art installation that will hang from 8th to 31st May 2020 inside the Cathedral.

Liverpool Cathedral is free to enter and you’ll find child-friendly trails if you want to extend the time you spend with us by exploring our building. If you’ve got a head for heights then take a trip up the Tower. Prices for trips up the Tower vary, prices can also be found on our website by clicking this link.

Don’t worry if you’re not able to get to the Cathedral this half-term, as over the next few months until 19th April, we’ll be asking as many people as possible to come into the Cathedral and write their message of peace and hope on paper doves. Then Peter, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors will join the thousands of doves together to create the large-scale installation above the Well ready for its official opening on the 75th anniversary of VE day on 8th May 2020.

Please note: children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. A max of four children per adult.
