Front Row: La Machine

Tune in to BBC Radio 4 this evening between 7-7.45pm to hear Phil Davis, editor of The Reader magazine on Front Row talking about ‘La Machine’, a 50ft mechanical spider which is currently clinging to the side of a redundant office block near Liverpool’s Lime Street Station.

I have been following around La Princess – the Spider – for days now, waiting for her to wake up (she slept through her crane lift). Reporting on her awakening today…

The creature will then begin exploring the city, forming part of a huge piece of street theatre throughout the city at various landmarks, culminating in what organisers are calling a “spectacular finish” on Sunday. Creepy.
