Gaia is located by the Grand Entrance and will be open for its last day on Thursday, 30 May, from 10am to 10pm ( there will no access under Gaia from 4pm).

Thursday 30 May – Wirral Sings: 
There will be a showcase of Wirral’s musical talent, including a special appearance from TikTok star Michael Aldag.

The evening will see a fire-lit concert take place featuring a second half “mini proms in the park” by Flat Pack Music.

Bring a camping chair, picnic and settle down to hear some of the country’s finest opera singers and local choirs give a concert like no other. All lit by fire under a magical Earth.

…and don’t miss the People Powered Rocket!
Walk the Plank will be bringing their astonishing pedal-powered train – an environmentally friendly take on George Stevenson’s Rocket locomotive – to the park.

Carrying six Victorian pantomime horses heading to New Brighton on their jolly holidays, there will definitely be some horsing about, so come down and get your friends and family involved!
