The Big History Festival gives families the unique opportunity to unlock the hidden secrets of Liverpool’s iconic St George’s Quarter during the Easter holidays
Formerly called the St George’s Day Festival, The Big History Festival takes place in and around the stunning St George’s Hall and World Museum, celebrating the rich heritage of this historic area with fascinating, brand new exhibitions, talks, heritage walks, and workshops for people of all ages to enjoy.
Among the many highlights at The Big History Festival include the rare unveiling of one of the city’s greatest treasures, the Minton-tiled floor at St George’s Hall, plus the reopening of World Museum’s new-look Ancient Egypt: A journey through time gallery, following an 18-month major refurbishment. The gallery is now the UK’s second largest Ancient Egypt gallery after the British Museum!
The Big History Festival culminates with The Big History Weekend at St George’s Hall - a full two days of stalls, exhibitions and talks from guest speakers inside the Grade I listed building.
