Those of you that thought you'd missed your chance to walk throught the Mersey Tunnel, guess again;
To celebrate the Queensway Tunnel’s 75th anniversary, Merseytravel is hosting a unique and historic event; the chance to take an intriguing walk back through time and witness the past 75 years of the Mersey Tunnel.
‘Under and Over the Mersey’ takes place on Sunday 19th July. You will be able to walk under the river through the Queensway Tunnel and be transported back in time to a 1930’s carnival atmosphere. Then return over the river on a Mersey Ferry.
The event includes a full entertainment programme suitable for the entire family and is fully accessible to everyone. Various celebrities will be counting down each walk, and there will be a vintage car rally, carnival rides, musical entertainment and dramatic circus displays, all compered by Keith Chegwin. Everyone will receive a commemorative medal to remind them of the occasion for years to come.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to Merseytravel’s 2009 very worthwhile corporate charity, Claire House. So why not get together with your friends and family and form a team event for charity? You could even wear fancy dress.
Individual tickets are £5 and family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are £15. You can chose to walk through at 10.30am, 11.15am, 12 noon, 12.45pm or 1.30pm.Book online
