SIX extraordinary structures made of cardboard, tape and community spirit will be created in each borough this summer in what is a cultural first for Liverpool City Region.
Lost Castles will see hundreds of volunteers work with thousands of cardboard boxes to build monumental castle-inspired structures, some of which will be based on actual medieval forts or historic structures which were in the region at one time.
Members of the public - individuals and community groups - are being urged to get involved in the event which is set to take place from Thursday 9 to Sunday 12 August.
Anyone who signs up can help create these magical structures and then join in the fun of toppling them at the end of the weekend.
Some of the creations are expected to be as tall as 20 metres and will be located in:
- Williamson Square (Liverpool)
- Knowsley Safari Park
- Norton Priory Museum (Halton)
- Ashton Park, West Kirby (Wirral)
- North Park, Bootle (Sefton)
- Victoria Square, near the Town Hall (St Helens)
