It seems that everybody wants to be in Liverpool this year – and who can blame them with everything that’s happening for the Capital of Culture festivities during 2008.

However, I hadn’t realised just how well connected the city was until I started looking into it. Our museums and galleries seem to be littered (metaphorically speaking anyway) with little known links to well known people.

So in a homage to the well known trivia game ‘Six degrees of Kevin Bacon‘ and Liverpool’s Capital of Culture year in 08, we now bring you ’08 degrees of separation

For example, find out how even the man himself, Kevin Bacon, is connected to our collections.
