Albert Dock - 25 years on

THE Albert Dock complex celebrated the 25th anniversary of its regeneration was held over 31 May to 2 June 2013, but it was so low key that it was hard to find much evidence. Understandable, perhaps, given the huge success of the previous weekend's the Battle of the Atlantic Commemorations, and the 4th coming events:- Music On The Waterfront on 7 June 2013, when Liverpool's waterfront expects to resound once again with lively bands plus individual acts; and the Mersey River Festival 7 June to 9 June 2013. But, apart from flags flying around the dock, many residual from the previous week, there were no overt references to the anniversary in the form of banners or notices that we could see, apart for one in the shop window of Nautica! Several shops and the Maritime Museum, the Beatles Story, and the Tate Art Gallery, had concessions for families with children and ran special events, including Face Painting which seemed, as ever, very popular. The Octonauts were in port, and at various places round the dock, there were street artists entertaining. The Merseycats were giving lively performances as were the Liverpool Shanty Singers and the Creative Community Choir from Bebington. The good weather ensured a reasonable turnout and everyone seemed well content, but apart from a fire evacuation there was little that was different! Nevertheless, "Many Happy Returns"; may the Albert Dock, and indeed the whole waterfront, continue to serve Liverpool as well as it has for the last 25 years. These are a few moments we did capture on film.
