So, this afternoon's Liverpool Arab Arts Festival grand finale was as amazing as I thought it would be.

I even got to see my first whirling dervish dance, which was just fab.

The atmosphere in the Palm House was just buzzing. Loved it!

There was some amazing dancing at the World Museum Liverpool on Saturday as part of the Liverpool Arab Arts Festival.

The dancers were with the Funoon dance group (http://www.funoonalarabiya.org/), led by Nawarra.

It was so much fun to watch and photograph. They're a very talented group of ladies.

This very beautifully and ornately carved gravestone of John Roscoe is in the grounds of the Church of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas in Chapel Street in central Liverpool.

There's been a religious building on the site since 1257; the current church suffered a spire collapse in the 19th century and was then bombed in the Second World War.

The graveyard used to cover an area greater than now, which may be why this gravestone has been moved and secured to the wall of the garden of remembrance.

Love this pharaonic-style head looking out from the side of the Cunard Building in Liverpool.

The Cunard Building - one of the 'Three Graces' - was built in the early twentieth century and has a series of figures around the outside, representing different cultures from around the world, highlighting the international nature of the ocean-liner industry.

Starting to think I might need to get myself one of these, what with all the rain we've been having recently (though I think I'd pick one that wasn't already full of water ...)

Looking down at the composite columns and acanthus frieze on the Liverpool Central Library. This part of the building houses the beautiful Picton Reading Room.
