Festivities are riding high in Liverpool with the creation of Pony pens outside our ACT III project at Royal Court Theatre.

Park Palace Ponies are offering pony rides to children in the city centre at weekends during the run up to Christmas. The ponies are joining in the festivities wearing tinsel, antlers and red jackets.

The child friendly ponies are usually based in Mill Street, Dingle where courses are run for children between 7 and 10 years. The riding school teaches basic pony care, how to walk, run and canter in 16 hours. Free taster sessions are offered with experienced and qualified staff.

Works at Royal Court Theatre are nearly completed after a 26 week programme including renovations to create a new 150 seat independent venue, improvement of balcony spaces, backstage restructuring, refurbishment of dressing rooms and installation of a lift.
