It has been one of the most speculated events of 2018, but now it has been confirmed that Royal De Luxe, the world's leading street theatre company, will return in October for the final trilogy of the Giant Spectacular.

The Giants and Liverpool Sea Odyssey.

The Giants made their first visit to Liverpool with 'Sea Odyssey' in 2012. A story inspired by the sinking of the Titanic, starring the adventures of the Little Girl Giant, her playful canine friend, Xolo and the Diver. In 2012, the Giants attracted 800,000 onto Liverpool's streets to watch the incredible performance unfold.

Spectators were wowed by the Diver who rose from the dock, making his way through the narrow road on Castle Street. Xolo the dog, interacted with youngsters who lined the paveways. There was the endearing moment when the Little Girl sat on the lap of the Diver outside the Echo Arena. It ended with all three Giants sailing away together.

Memories of August 1914
The Giant Spectacular made its return to Liverpool 2014 for 'Memories of August 1914.' This year, the Giants were joined by the Grandmother, whose stories told through sound brought to life the impact of preparations of WWI had on Liverpool. 2014s event is widely regarded as Liverpool's biggest ever event, as 1 MILLION people turned out to see the spectacle.

2014 saw the Grandmother sleeping in the Great Hall at St George's Hall, where visitors could go in and see her and hear her make some ...interesting noises. Two lucky little girls got to ride on the back of Xolo and families and youngsters took to the windows of their homes displaying homemade signs, welcoming back the Giants. One of our favourite pictures from 2014, is of a young girl dressed as her favourite Giant, the Little Girl.

Liverpool's Dream
In 2018, The Giants will visit Liverpool for a final hurrah lasting 4 days. From Thursday 4 October to Sunday 7 October. Although the theme is still being held mystery, the 4 day extravaganza will centre around "Liverpool's Dream." - With relevance to Liverpool's cultural renaissance, that the city could have only dreamed of.

This year, the Giants will be in both Liverpool and Wirral. The route and full story remains underwraps for now, but we have absolutely no doubt that this event is something that you must see in your lifetime.
