On 8 May, we’ll hear from students at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) School of Art and Design. On 15 May, project curator Bethan Lewis will talk visitors through our latest exhibition, Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art.
We also hold introductory tours to the Gallery every Wednesday at 3pm.
