We are pleased to announce our “Liverpool Without Walls” street theatre activities
We have 13 ‘Hope Street Shivers’ Tour Experiences up for grabs to organisations and groups in Merseyside – at no cost to participants.
The Tour Experiences will last approximately 90mins long and can take place any date or time subject to availability.
The tours are an exciting blend of physical-storytelling including History, Heritage-Tales and Folklore taking in Liverpool’s most impressive and glorious city surroundings delivered by a group of award-winning guides.

What We Do:
Shiverpool is a multi award winning storytelling street theatre tour company that activates the city centre’s most historical and stunning buildings and locations with weird and wonderful tales of history mystery and more. Our experiences delight and entertain all the family, schools, youth groups visitors to the city and Liverpool audiences. We work with the region’s emerging artists and storytellers to deliver our shows that have been recognised nationally for their excellence.
Our street performances are an important part of the city’s creative ecology and advocating local independent businesses on our tours is an important part of what we do.
After the Tour:
We will provide the gift of a specially printed hand drawn illustrated Shiverpool City Ghost Map, a memento of the event and to encourage further exploration of the city of Liverpool, to seek out new adventure and discover Liverpool’s Haunted Heritage.
We are able to deliver our activities Covid secure with a full and robust health and safety assessment- taking the latest government guidelines into consideration.
