Rats entertainment, art market, waxing lyrical and transport

Heather Smith has got some superb ideas should you not be going to the Hope Street Feast this weekend

Published on September 18th 2009.

Rats entertainment, art market, waxing lyrical and transport

Good night and Vienna
You are never more than a few feet from a rat, they say, or conversely you are never more than a few feet away from someone who says “You are never more than a few feet from a rat”. And that came from a thought provoking rant (not rat) on Liverpool Confidential recently.

Except in St Luke's church where once rats as big as cats danced deep down in the locked crypt, but let's not go there.

Up in the fresh light of day, we can just leave it to the imagination, especially this Sunday when the classic movies series of films at the “bombdie” shows the Orson Welles masterpiece The Third Man, complete with all those atmospheric Viennese sewer scenes and that marvellous Harry Lime Theme. It marks the final episode in a weekend of films to enjoy as the nights draw in.

This Friday, it's Invasion of the Body Snatchers , Saturday, The Horses Mouth and Sunday The Third Man.

All films start at 7.15pm. Bring your blankets, chairs, picnic and marvel at the wonderments.
*Fri-Sun (18-20 Sept) Classic movies at St Lukes (bombed) church, Leece St, L1. Free with donation.

Art and souls
A market that is unique, bursting with creativity but is still affordable. That is the desire of every scurrying craft shopper.

Well, what is the Metropolitan Cathedral's outdoor piazza for, if not to make art market dreams come true?

More than 50 local artists are set to gather this Sunday (as they do every third Sunday of the month) to sell their fine crafts. This weekend is extra special as the piazza provides a neat way in to the Hope Street festivities.

No labels, no names, no mass-produced drivel that's more van goth than Van gogh . It's all about one-offs and character, which the artists will no doubt be glad to chew your ear off about...
*Piazza Art Markets, Metropolitan Cathedral, Sun 20th Sept, 11am-4pm.

Wax: Not just for candles
Talking of ears, ever felt like yours are glued? Well, perhaps it's time you tried Hopi Ear Candling, one of the many treatments available at Lark Lane's Old Police Station this Saturday.

It's time to wave goodbye to pain and impurity and welcome another Healing Day, the quarterly health and well being shebang courtesy of the Calm Centre Collective.

There's Shiatsu, Reiki, Tai Chi and a whole host of other treatments and workshops. Plus, there's plenty of live music and dance to entertain the kids.

”Pop” along and see what a burning candle brings out of your ears.
*Healing Day, the old Police Station, Lark Lane, Sat 19th Sept, 1pm-7pm, entry £2 (£1 concessions), kids go free.

Steamy windows
Birkenhead Park will once more be packed out with classic cars, buses and bikes this weekend as the second Transport Festival takes place.

Highlights include a 1909 Stanley Steam Car, proudly owned by Wirral's own David Webster. The extremely rare model can reach between 50-60 mph on a good road, according to the manual.

Vintage vehicles aside, there's lots of fun to be had. Try your luck on the nine-hole portable golf course, or maybe check the bark on Laura Ashton's pack of Siberian Huskies.

The programme of aural delights is also plentiful, you will be pleased to hear. Choose from the Batla Bermo Samba Reggae Band, Taiko Dragon Drummers or Knowsley Women's Choir, among others.
*Birkenhead Festival of Transport , Birkenhead Park, Sat 19th & Sun 20th Sept, 10am-5pm, free
