Liverpool Legend Ken Dodd sets his name in the ‘People’s Path’

Thu 23rd, Jul


Legendary Merseyside comedian Ken Dodd has been honoured with a brick added to the People’s Path at Liverpool Cathedral. Ken who was born in the Knotty Ash area of the city, is a local icon who nationally proudly celebrates his Liverpool roots.

Ken Dodd’s personalised brick reads: “Ken Dodd, Happiness”. The brick was laid in the path yesterday outside the entrance to the Cathedral with Ken joining the Dean, Pete Wilcox in prayer. 

Ken’s fervent passion for Liverpool is why he was chosen to be included on the People’s Path. His brick will join other famous personalities including footballing heroes Howard Kendall and Kenny Dalglish who became People’s Path legends in 2014.

About the ‘People’s Path’

The ‘Peoples Path’ is a reserved area in the grounds of Liverpool Cathedral which wraps around the building leading from the main entrance to the Lady Chapel. It provides the opportunity for you to have your memory engraved into a brick, which you can share with friends and family for many years to come. You can choose any tribute you like, from simply your name and your family’s name, a special date such as a Baptism or graduation, or you could buy a brick on behalf of a business, club or society or to remember a loved one. The choice is yours!

All proceeds from the bricks will go to the Cathedral Foundation, which helps keep the Cathedral free to visitors and supports the Cathedral’s development and work in the community. Individuals or businesses can purchase a brick and sections will be released on a limited basis. Donations for a brick start at just £50. Everyone who sponsors a brick will receive a special certificate of authenticity.
