Here’s a quick update from Finola Kelly, our Communities Creative Apprentice, on a fun weekend she had recently at the Hub festival – all in the name of important research for work, of course:

“On Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 May 2010 I went along to the HUB festival with members of the Communities team where we had our own National Museums Liverpool stall. The HUB Festival is a free festival that was held in Otterspool, Aigburth. The festival is for anyone to attend, with 10 bands each day playing on the main stage, break dancing, amazing BMX, skateboarding, graffiti boards with lots of artists to join in with and many more.

Our stall was to promote and gain information for the Museum Of Liverpool’s Creative City gallery. One activity was a ‘vote your fave scouser’ board. Everyone had a chance to stick a star in the column of their favourite scouser. These scousers were Kim Cattrall, Steven Gerrard, Paul McCartney, Jennifer Ellison, Colleen Rooney and John Bishop. We also had another board where people could write down why they think Liverpool was creative or special to them. Everyone’s comments were appreciated thank you!

Once everyone had voted for their fave scouser the stars were counted and here are the results;

1. Paul McCartney
2. Steven Gerrard
3. John Bishop
4. Kim Cattrall
5. Jennifer Ellison
6. Colleen Rooney

Despite the rain on Saturday we all enjoyed ourselves and had a great time and reached out to over 1000 young people over the two days!”
