Arts, Resilience and Mental Health (ARM) is an interactive, creative project working with some of the most vulnerable young people in Merseyside. It aims to increase their self-awareness, resilience and transferable skills. By helping young people develop these skills we will try to change attitudes and broaden horizons. The six-week programme will explore the connection between mental and physical health, including the importance of:
  • good sleep patterns
  • outdoor activities
  • healthy eating
  • the effects of social media and internet usage on mental health
Our programmes can engage up to 15 young people at a time (identified by the school/agency as a group in need, e.g. disengaged/struggling with concentration levels). Once referrals have been made we will meet with the school/agency to discuss the needs of the individuals within the group. These meetings will also identify the necessary safeguarding processes to deal with any disclosures that may occur during the delivery of the programme.

Liverpool Cathedral is inviting primary schools around the Liverpool area to take part in a new, exciting art project in collaboration with artist Peter Walker. Peace Doves is a mass-participation installation project inviting messages of hope, peace and love from across our area, culminating in the creation of an art installation that will hang temporarily inside Liverpool Cathedral from VE Day, Friday 8 May until 31 May 2020. In the lead up to the installation, from 14 February until 19 April, anyone visiting the Cathedral can write a message of peace, hope or love on a paper dove which will join thousands of others to form part of the Peace Doves installation in the Cathedral. How schools can get involved Primary schools across the area will be sent a pack of 40 paper doves to create a display of Peace Doves in their setting. Students can use their creativity and decorate their Peace Doves any way they’d like with a message or drawing about peace, hope and love. Schools are encouraged to get their display of Peace Doves ready for Friday 8 May, then photograph and share it on social media, using #LiverpoolDoves to join the celebration. Schools wishing to be represented in our large-scale Peace Dove installation, need to return ONE paper dove to us by Friday 17 April. This dove must be decorated following the artist’s instructions below:
  • Write or draw a message using black ink – biro works best;
  • Only write or draw on one side of the paper dove;
  • Only write on the head, body and tail, leaving the wings blank.
Please send completed doves flat, in a certificate envelope with the school’s letterhead or compliment slip, to: Peace Doves C/O Emma Williams Liverpool Cathedral St James Mount Liverpool L1 7AZ We can’t wait to see what schools will produce. Anyone who wants to be part of our installation in the Cathedral, please come and see us. We'd love as many people as possible to take part. You can read more about the installation on our website: http://www.liverpoolcathedral.org.uk If you’d like more information about how Liverpool Cathedral can help with schools’ religious education curriculum or arranging a school visit, please contact our Education Team.

Welcome to Royal Liver Building 360, a tower tour and experience in the iconic Royal Liver Building. Our Tower Tour is a fun way of learning more about the history of the Royal Liver Building and experiencing the views from our 10th and 15th rooftop viewing platforms. Our tour takes you up through the west clock tower arriving first at the 10th floor giving you views across the Mersey as well as the highest external viewing point of the Great George Clocks. After this you ascend to the 14th floor behind the clock faces for an audio visual digitally mapped experience which lasts about 9 minutes before heading to the 15th floor for our 360 degree views of the City, the Docks and into the Wirral. Our tour is fully guided and lasts for around 60 minutes. Through out the attraction are a number of markers that can be activated by our app “Royal Liver Building 360” which help bring to life extra elements of the tour such as photos, videos, AR experiences as well as linking to google maps to help you explore the city further for its links to the building. Tours are done in groups of 15 (aged 7-11) plus two complimentary supervisor places, or groups of 12 (aged 12+) plus two complimentary supervisor places, along with a tour presenter. If your group is larger than this you will be across multiple consecutive tours. Tour times vary dependant on time of year but a schedule for your visit will be agreed at booking. The tour is only suitable for ages 7 and over due to the nature of the experience.
