Think of the 1960s and The Beatles won’t be far from many people’s thoughts. Their appearances at the London Palladium and the Ed Sullivan Show made them nationally and then internationally famous.
While all that was happening there was another influential figure emphatically putting Liverpool on the map. Bill Shankly’s Liverpool were on the rise, playing a brand of swashbuckling football under their manager’s passionate and charismatic leadership. 1966 may be the year England won the World Cup but for us it was the year that Everton won the FA Cup and Liverpool won the league championship 3-2 against Sheffield Wednesday.
There was no denying it: Liverpool was cool. It’s that coolness that we’ll be celebrating with a week of free activities in our 1960s extravaganza from 6 August!
Make your own Ford Anglia, an iconic 1960s car made right here in Liverpool on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Try your hand with real 1960s games like the Etch-a-Sketch and Spirograph from Monday through to Thursday.
Celebrating 50 years since the launch of The Beatle’s White Album by making your own album cover craft work on Tuesday and Thursday.
We’ll have handling objects for you to relive the decade with, including records, radios, toys, games, clothing, and even some things to get you remembering your school days.

“What a busy time it’s been for the team at the International Slavery Museum! Firstly, we celebrated Slavery Remembrance Day (our 18th one) on 23 August and now we are in Black History Month.
Before I mention what’s going on for Black History Month, I would like to tell you some the new and exciting projects our team have been working on.
These include new family sessions exploring African myths and legends where we look at the many different stories from all over Africa and then create some of the characters from the stories.
