Marie Curie Daffodil Afternoon Tea at The Shankly Hotel

It’s nearly time for Marie Curie’s annual ‘Every Daffodil Counts’ campaign and we at The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool are looking forward to lending our support by hosting a special Marie Curie Daffodil Afternoon Tea.

Marie Curie

The amazing work that Marie Curie nurses do across the UK is immeasurable. They provide unyielding support to people living with terminal illness and their families.

Often during their last few months of life people with terminal illnesses spend most of their time in hospital rooms, away from home or loved ones. This is simply because there isn’t an adequate level of care at home for that person and their needs.

Marie Curie nurses work day and night to make sure that as many people as possible can enjoy the final stages of their lives in the comfort of their own home.

The nurses work free of charge day and night to help support families who are caring for somebody with a terminal illness, or to simply provide companionship for those without families.

Daffodil Campaign

The very first Daffodil Appeal took place in 1986, where volunteers were raising funds for the charity by handing out fresh daffodils and collecting donations from the public.

Since then the appeal has grown and in 2005 the charity began using the term ‘Great Daffodil Appeal’.

Now, 12 years on, Marie Curie are the largest provider of UK beds outside of the NHS, in anyone of their nine charity supported hospices.

The Great Daffodil Appeal allows for an excellent standard of one to one nursing care in homes across the UK. Something that families and those who are terminally ill simply cannot put a price on.

The Shankly hotel Daffodil Afternoon Tea

Marie Curie Daffodil Afternoon Tea - The Shankly hotel

The Shankly Hotel was built upon the family values of a great man, and it is by those family values that we continue to support charities like Marie Curie, who are making the world a better place.

We will be handing out Daffodils during the month of March in support of the Great Daffodil Appeal and will look forward to the amazing turnout expected at our Marie Curie Daffodil Afternoon Tea.

The event is due to take place on the 25th March between 12-3pm. To arrange your attendance and do your part for Marie Curie call 0151 541 9999 and quote Marie Curie.

Every little bit helps, so if you aren’t attending the Daffodil Afternoon Tea, pop in and donate for a Daffodil. What costs a little to you is priceless to a terminally ill person and their family.

The Shankly’s Liverpool Theatre Guide

At the Shankly Hotel, we’re lucky enough to be right in the heart of Liverpool’s city centre. And that means we have some of the best theatres in the UK right on our doorstep. For those who have booked theatre tickets in Liverpool and are looking for accommodation, the Shankly Hotel offers luxurious rooms and facilities in a thriving location of the city.

If you’re still planning a stay with us, why not take a look at our guide to the fabulous theatres of Liverpool? We’re located only a short walk or taxi ride away, so we recommend spending a cosy afternoon at the theatre or making your theatre visit a glamorous night to remember.

The Everyman Theatre

Situated on one of Liverpool’s best loved streets, you’ll find the Everyman on Hope Street, between the city’s two breathtaking cathedrals and surrounded by flourishing independent businesses. After reopening in 2014, the theatre won the 2014 RIBA Stirling Prize for architecture, and with its trademark wrap-around auditorium and environmentally sustainable features, it’s easy to see why.

Renowned for its unique and creative productions, expect to see classic tales turned into plays, jazz nights in their basement Bistro and of course, their famous Rock ‘n’ Roll Christmas panto.

The Playhouse Theatre

Escape from the hustle and bustle of life with a trip to Liverpool’s traditional Playhouse Theatre. You’ll find this iconic theatre right beneath the Radio City Tower in Williamson Square.

The Grade II* listed building showcases a 19th century auditorium and 20th century front of house extension. Radiating character from its striking proscenium arch design, you’ll find yourself transported into the show from start to finish.

This Liverpool gem certainly cultivates an atmosphere. Known to show plays such as The Woman in Black and Haunting of Hill House, this is the go-to theatre for horror lovers hoping to find themselves on the edge of their seat. And for those looking for a more laid back experience.

Liverpool Empire Theatre

Seating an impressive 2348 people with the largest two-tier auditorium in Britain, Liverpool Empire Theatre is arguably the most dynamic in the city. In recent years, the theatre has played host to impressive West End favourites such as Dirty Dancing and Wicked.

With big productions ranging from musicals to ballet, the Empire is one of the city’s best venues for family entertainment all year long.

Liverpool Unity Theatre

At the unitytheatre Liverpool, expect to be swept away into the world of theatre with productions frequently showcasing the local talent of Liverpool.

The Unity describe themselves as a “small-scale theatre with big ambitions”, and we’re inclined to agree. Located off the cobbled streets of Hope Street surrounded by picturesque houses and bars, the theatre never offers anything short of creative, innovative productions that can’t be found elsewhere.

Liverpool Epstein Theatre

Formerly the Neptune Theatre, the Epstein Theatre is known for its sparkling pantomime productions, this family favourite is one that shouldn’t be missed during a visit with the kids to Liverpool.

Described by visitors as an “oldy worldy theatre”, the Epstein has managed to maintain the character of a traditional theatre while weaving in modern twists. Surrounded by Hanover Street’s bar and dining scene, expect upbeat shows and events that are perfect for a night out in the city centre.

Royal Court Theatre

If you ask a Liverpool local about the Royal court, they’re likely to tell you about a good night out. This unique theatre experience allows you to drink and dine in your seat before the show begins and enjoy drinks at your table throughout the production.

You can be certain of a fantastic auditorium, vibrant bar area and high-quality facilities at the Royal Court, which has seen significant investment over the past few years. Plans to continue the upkeep of this stunning venue are already underway.

The Lantern Theatre

theguideliverpool.com

The Lantern Theatre is without a doubt one of Liverpool’s most charming and quaint hidden gems. A cosy, family-run company, this venue was grown from a love for the performing arts.

You’d be unlikely to stumble across the Latern unless you were looking, but located in the Baltic Triangle, just outside of the thriving Liverpool One shopping and dining area. And though the venue is low-key, we guarantee that it’s well worth a visit.

With a cosy bar and a blend of creative productions, visitors can indulge in a range of productions, varying from local writing, acting,  live music and laugh-out-loud comedy from talented performers who are ready to shine.

To start your Liverpool theatre experience with an unforgettable stay at the Shankly Hotel, our team will be happy to find the best available price for you. You can give them a call on 0151 601 8998.
