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.
