Plan your visit to Gaia – NOW

by Alison Cornmell

As anticipation continues to build ahead of its arrival in Kirkby, tickets for Gaia are now available to book online.

On 28 January, Luke Jerram’s 6-metre-wide replica of the earth will land in St. Chad’s Church for three weeks. Open daily, more than 15,000 time slots have been released to ensure as many people in the community as possible can experience this world-renowned artwork for themselves.

Cllr Shelley Powell, Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhoods said: “We know that Gaia has proved incredibly popular in the other locations it has toured and people really have not wanted to miss out on seeing it in their local area.  We have allocated time entry ticketing which will not only help to control the safe flow of people through the church but will also ensure people are guaranteed entry and have enough time to appreciate the artwork and whole experience.

“We have an amazing programme of events taking place whilst Gaia is at St. Chads and on occasion this means that the space will not be open to the public, so we want to ensure that people don’t just turn up at the Church and are disappointed if they are not able to get in. Ultimately, we want as many people as possible to enjoy this experience, so don’t wait, book your FREE tickets now.”

All information regarding Gaia – including a link to book tickets – is now available here www.cultureknowsley.co.uk/gaia/
