A performance of Arts Groupie and The Bookworm Players’ latest family show, “The Liver Bird”, will take place on the day, featuring Samantha Alton and Ellis Murphy.

The family theatrical performance combines storytelling and puppetry to tell the story of a young boy called Charlie J, from Liverpool.

Charlie’s grandmother teaches him all about the history of her town and he is fascinated by liver birds. When things start to get tough at school, Charlie is visited by a certain special creature.

The Liver Bird is a fairy tale written by John Maguire and adapted for the stage by Jessica May Buxton, of The Bookworm Players.

A performance of ‘Bob the Artist’ by Marion Deuchars of Drama Chameleon will also take place on the day.

Adapted for the stage by Sue Richardson Fowkes, Bob the Artist is a heartwarming tale about the importance of accepting our differences.

Bob the Artist’s storyline is teased as follows: “Bob the Bird is like all his friends except for his skinny legs. When Bob is teased, he decides to try changing himself to fit in. But he doesn’t know where all his efforts will lead him…”

Participants are encouraged to bring their own blankets and picnics to enjoy the day.

The aviary is scheduled to take place Wednesday, August 25 at Stanley Park’s Isla Gladstone Conservatory, L4 0TD.

The first event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the second from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets start at £6 per person, or £22 for a family of four.
