Over the bridge at the Merseyside Maritime Museum we have a series of events to commemorate the 105th anniversary of the tragedy of the Titanic (9-30 April). There will be music similar to what was played on the Titanic, craft activities and stories from those who would have been aboard the ship.

If you want to head out of town for some scenery we have the best places to visit. Over in the picturesque village of Port Sunlight is the Lady Lever Art Gallery where you can become an artist and take part in an adventure around the Gallery. Explore the Galleries in arty adventures (19 April), looking for inspiration from the collections to make your very own masterpiece.

Another great place to visit outside the city centre is the leafy suburb, Mossley Hill where you can take in the sights and surroundings of Sudley House. Grab a magnifying glass and hunt around Sudley House for mini beasts (8 April). Then scuttle inside for storytelling and creepy crawly crafts.
