Famous paintings reunited at the Walker

For just the second time since they were made nearly 400 years ago, and for the first time ever in Liverpool, two spectacular paintings will be reunited at the Walker Art Gallery.

Matthias Stom’s ‘The Executioner with the Head of John the Baptist’ will be on display next to William Dobson’s copy from 30 March until 16 June.

Mamma Mia! it’s Mother’s Day

Still need a gift for that special woman in your life? Well Woolton Picture House is showing ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ this Mother’s Day (31 March) at 4:45pm.

Set a decade on from the events of the original sing-along favourite, we’re back on the fictional Greek island of Kalokairi for this star-studded sequel based once again on the songs of ABBA.
