Last Lewis’s Event this Sunday

27 August 2010 by Lucy

From tomorrow, there are only three full days left for you to visit the National Conservation Centre’s popular exhibition Lewis’s Fifth Floor: A Department Story.

This exhibition by Liverpool photographer Stephen King has been a real success, having received over 37,000 visitors since it opened in February.

Sadly, the store closed at the end of May, but it’s been lovely to see so many people coming to the exhibition to relive memories of the fifth floor and often uncover its hidden secrets for the first time, unaware that this closed floor ever existed.

This Sunday 29 August, we will be hosting a Farewell to Lewis’s event, to celebrate the success of the exhibition and reminisce about the department store, which became a Liverpool institution.

All are welcome to come along between 1 and 3pm to enjoy the music and afternoon tea on offer, and share memories of the store. People are also invited to bring along any of their own Lewis’s photographs to be scanned by the exhibition team.
