Paul Trevor’s photograph in Like you’ve never been away exhibition

On Thursday 12 May we welcomed our members to the Walker Art Gallery for the first special event of the new membership year – a look at the excellent new Paul Trevor exhibition, Like you’ve never been away.

Paul’s photographs of people in inner-city Liverpool were taken over six months in 1975. They have triggered a fascinating trip down memory lane for many who have seen them and Paul has even managed to track down a number of people whose photo he took all those years ago! Read more…

A film about football in Liverpool wouldn’t be complete without an insight into ‘Derby Day’, and soon we will be recreating our very own with the help of reds and blues across the city.

It’s true to say that football can unite, but many families across Merseyside are split down the middle, with some members supporting one team, and others pledging allegiance to another. Read more…

Are you red or are you blue? This is one of the big questions we ask in our football immersive experience Kicking and Screaming in the new Museum of Liverpool. The film celebrates and explores the city’s passion for football and takes the visitor on a journey through all the key moments that have shaped it.

It’s Everlution!

12 March 2010 by Karen

Today is the anniversary of a momentous event for football fans in Liverpool and beyond. It was on this day in 1892 that Everton Football Club split in two, with half of the members leaving their home at Anfield and moving to a new site a few hundred yards away at Goodison Road, and the remaining members staying to form Liverpool Football Club.

The Everton Collection website features the actual minute book from 25 January 1892 that describes the members’ final offer to Mr Houlding, the owner of the ground they were currently leasing, and the resolution to move to Goodison Road if the offer was not accepted. The rest is history. There’s more on the Anfield Split as it came to be known, including the politics and personalities that contributed, in a special feature on the site. Read more…
