THE ROUTE for the last ever Giants Spectacular has been revealed.

With just over three weeks to go until the spectacular hits Merseyside, from Thursday, October 4 to Sunday, October 7, theatre company Royal de Luxe wants to keep the event shrouded in mystery and will not be revealing which Giants are heading to the banks of the Mersey.

Leader of Wirral Council Cllr Phil Davies said: “We can’t wait to welcome our Giant visitor to Wirral.

"The seaside setting will be a first for Royal de Luxe and we’re really looking forward to seeing a Giant exploring New Brighton and landmarks such as the lighthouse.

"Our expansive coastline and promenade, with the iconic Liverpool waterfront in the background, will be a unique and memorable location for this incredible show.

"It’s creating a lot of excitement on this side of the Mersey and we couldn’t be prouder to be part of what promises to be an amazing conclusion to the Giant Spectaculars trilogy.”

The main ‘walking’ action of the show takes place from Friday, October 5 to Sunday, October 7 with the action kicking off from 10am on Friday in Liverpool on St George’s Hall Plateau.

On the other side of the water in New Brighton, another Giant will wake at Fort Perch Rock at 11am on Friday and will spend the day enjoying the sights and sounds of Wirral.

From here, the giant will walk along Marine Promenade and onto Coastal Drive towards Kings Parade to have a siesta after awakening at 3pm, the giant will continue its journey along The Dips and head along Kings Parade, Marine Promenade, Tower Promenade and Magazines Promenade until 5.15pm.

The show will culminate on Sunday with a focus on the waterfront and a parade finale.
