Head on down from the 13th – 15th of February with the family to experience first hand the 3 storey high Giants walking through the streets of Perth.
This is a must see experience.
Inclusive theatre where young and old rub shoulders with the giants. We walk together in their footsteps and we walk taller because they are with us. – The guardian (UK)
This is a three day event where the Perth city will become a live theatre for huge giants telling a modern fable about, our people, our culture and our country.
The giants journey in the streets of Perth take inspiration from Western Australian stories of ancient lands, Gallipoli-bound troops and a little girl in a lighthouse who buoyed their spirits.
Once you see these Giants live in the city it will never look the same again.
This is a story that will indeed touch the hearts of a generation of young australians and help carry forward the legend, heritage and history of our original Anzacs.
Graham Edwards AM, state president of the Returned and Services League of Australia
This will be a moment to remember
There are certain momentous occasions we remember long after the event has passed – The Incredible and Phenomenal Journey of The Giants to the Streets of Perth will be one of those moments.
Put aside the day-to-day, surround yourself with family and friends, and be part of a commemoration of the centenary of Anzac in the city. This is an experience to be shared and remembered.
Be in Perth in February 2015
The Giants is a three-day event.
The story begins on Friday 13 February and as the Giants walk our streets. On Saturday, the story – and the theatre – continues, until Sunday when they come together for the finale.
The Perth Festival website tells us that:
This is an epic event – no two days are the same and you are invited to come back again and again. To ensure you don’t miss a minute, be in Perth on 13, 14 and 15 February.
How to make the most of your experience
The city will be packed so make sure you take plenty of water and don’t forget your camera.
