Welly Walks

Wednesday 27 July – Swinging into the 60s

Join us on a Beatles-inspired walk as we discover how Calderstones Park is connected to John, Paul, George and Ringo.

We’ll share stories about life growing up for the Liverpool lads, as well as imagining what it might have been like to experience their meteoric rise to international superstardom.

Feel free to dig out your grooviest fancy dress, get ready to boogie, and take part in our dance contest if you’re brave enough!
