We will be holding a public engagement event at the Museum of Liverpool on Sunday 18 September, 2pm, open to anyone who wants to discover more about the Galkoff’s and the Secret Life of Pembroke Place project, provide feedback or register as a volunteer.

As you may know, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) and National Museums Liverpool recently received initial funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to support us looking at two important heritage sites on LSTM’s campus – court housing and the former Galkoff’s butchers shop.

Over the coming months, we will investigate the history of court housing and the shop, carry out exploratory work with local people and organisations to progress plans and apply for a full grant next year.

All work on the project will be supported by a team of volunteers. We are particularly interested in working with people from Liverpool’s Jewish community and local historians who are familiar with the area and may have knowledge of Pembroke Place.

You can also email museumofliverpool@liverpoolmuseums.org.uk for information about the event or project, or to provide feedback or register as a volunteer.

Hope to see you there!
