Liverpool - March of the penguins

4th December 2009 at 00:00

The UK's largest schools art project this year was unveiled last week as nearly 100 penguins marched across Liverpool. Around 45,000 schoolchildren from 98 schools across Merseyside designed unique three-foot penguins that will be displayed at 13 locations around Liverpool as part of the larger public art Go Penguins parade.

The project, which runs until January 10, aims to highlight the dangers of global warming. The bigger parade will showcase 135 individually designed 5ft penguins across Liverpool and will include designs by comedians Paul O'Grady and Johnny Vegas. RV.
