The Danny is a place where people can connect with one another, with their heritage and with the beautiful waterways setting. We offer engaging and creative opportunities for learners of all ages to find and follow their interests with us.

Our workshops for KS1 and KS2 are rich learning experiences in a memorable environment. Since Covid, we have focussed on core skills of teamwork and literacy, numeracy and creative wellbeing activities.

We have a poetry writing activity for KS2 with pre- visit activities, followed by a virtual workshop with poet Simon Mole to be used in the classroom. While on board, the children explore the vessel and carry out a problem solving challenge in small groups, and once they have completed this, enjoy some creative activities on the promenade deck.

For KS1, children can either explore the vessel using the teddy bear trail, or a simple problem-solving trail, and will also spend time on creative activities, story and song.

Workshops can accommodate up to 30 children with at least 5 acccompanying adults and cost £100 for a half day. Children are welcome to have their lunch on board. Locations for workshops are either Liverpool (April and June dates in 2024) or Sutton Weaver (between Runcorn and Frodsham), where May, June and July dates are available in 2024.
