The Liverpool Duck Trail was a huge success across Liverpool engaging old and younger audiences, audiences, tourists and those local to Merseyside. With the school holidays approaching we have arranged the ducks all in one great place with easy access for all.
The Liverpool Duck Trail has now moved to Mann Island and for the next 8 weeks where all the ducks can be viewed.
The 20 larger than life ducks towering seven feet high celebrated ‘Liverpool firsts’, with each duck themed on an event in history that Liverpool was the first to achieve. Liverpool artists were chosen to design and paint the ducks, including, Beatles Duck, LFC Duck, EFC Duck and Steamboat Duck.
A range of celebrities have signed many of the ducks once out across the city. Liverpool legends Alan Kennedy, Phil Thompson, Phil Neal and John Aldridge have signed LFC duck. EFC Duck has over 15 signatures littered on its blue duck breast by Everton’s First Team.
Liverpool singer and dancer Jennifer Ellison has made her mark on ‘Construction Duck’ as well BBC’s The Royal Family comedian Ricky Tomlinson who singed ‘Roadie Duck’. The latest singing in the celebrity duck bank was performer, singer and winner of ITV’s Dancing on Ice Ray Quinn singed Train Duck outside the backdrop of Lime Street Station earlier this week.
The next phase of the project seeks to acquire more celebrities to sign the ducks for the auction held at the Royal Liver Building, hosted by David Guest and promoted by Smooth Radio and Sutton Kersh, who will auction the ducks
