Central to this season will be our part in the citywide Titanic commemorations. Our Titanic commemoration service takes place on April 15th, and is supported by a special exhibition. In addition, on the 24th March we play host to the sold out Titanic Experience created by Liverpool Welsh Choral. Other highlights include the return of our popular late night tower openings every Thursday evening. New to 2012 is exclusive behind the scenes access to our famous bell chamber. To add to this, we have the popular photography workshops and a range of musical highlights including organ recitals and Come and Sing Stainers Crucifixion.
