Liverpool's Giant Spectacular Returns!


Liverpools Memories of August 1914 Giant Spectacular event commemorated WW1 in 2014 - Building on the success of the 2012 Sea Odyssey. The website saw over 100,000 hits in the first 24hrs of launch and we recorded well over a million hits to the website during the event! Although it was a massive responsibility, it was a brilliant experience getting to work on Liverpool's biggest ever event. It was amazing knowing so many people got to see and interact with something I built. Website powered by Drupal.
