Brian Patten, poet and performer, has done a turn in a lot of different venues but I bet a hairdressers hasn’t been one of them.  Yesterday his head (well, a plaster cast of it anyway) was installed at Andrew Collinge Hair and Beauty in Castle Street, Liverpool city centre.

It is on display there as part of the On The Road tour. Iconic pieces like this, which will feature in the forthcoming Museum of Liverpool, are being featured in some rather unexpected venues across the city centre.  Check our main site for further details.
