Liverpool’s Dream was an incredible display of puppetry staged by French group Royal de Luxe in 2018. Huge crowds gathered to watch the larger-than-life puppets parade around Liverpool and the Wirral.

This was a rather unique job for CBS. Our crew worked with Royal de Luxe’s puppeteers (the Liliputians) to help the Giant sail out of Canning Dock, using two mini-tugs and a Linkflote pontoon.

Brian Clarke, MD of Commercial Boat Services, said: “I was very proud to be involved with this fantastic event – as you can imagine, it’s something we’ve never done before! It’s been an absolute pleasure working with the French creators, Royal Deluxe and the team in Liverpool.”
