This exhibition has been the talk of the city for a little while now, and if it wasn’t for my boyfriend – I probably wouldn’t have taken a look at it. That’s the truth from me! But, it so happens that he is a big fan of these Warriors, so I thought I’d treat him to tickets – and I’d go along for moral support.

It so happens, the biggest surprise wasn’t that it didn’t end up myself and my boyfriend heading to the exhibition – instead me and my Dad, with a story for another day (Boyfriend and I still going strong BTW!) – instead, the biggest surprise was how amazing I found it, and how many times I’ve recommended it so far.
If you haven’t already – go. If you’re going to do something outlandish and out of character, then this is the one.
Trailing through time and seeing the depths of intricate planning this Emperor had gone through to ensure his afterlife was as prestigious as his first was incredible.
The Warriors welcomed in Liverpool, just a tiny handful compared to the thousands that still remain to be uncovered. All with their own unique features, faces, and stances – these soldiers were prepped for their next battle in the afterlife.
So many people were involved in creating this royal tomb, that it still hasn’t been fully excavated. Keeping everything in tact is of primary importance – so this exhibition just begins to tap on the doors of the true secrets the Terracotta Warriors defend.
My Dad and I had the perfect time there, walking through the exhibition – reading all the notes that explained the wild and wonderful, peering at the archaic and eroding artefacts that don’t seem real, welcoming the inclusion of modern technology that helped tell the story in a ferocious way. It was fantastic.
If you’re lucky enough to grab the last remaining spaces, I think you will agree that the stories here should be awed – it’s authentically brutal and unbelievable.
It’s also such an honour for our city to host this history. Thank you to all the staff who have worked on the project! You have brought the exhibition to life…
