Coming Events - Shakespeare's Birthday Display
Shakespeare's birth date is on April 23rd and this year we are planning a window display relating to the Bard! This will last for a few days and will consist of art work, a display of books (lent by Philip Canter) and any theatre posters we can find. If any of our artists have, or can produce, work relating to Shakespeare please let us know before the end of March so that plans can be made.
Princes Park Health Centre Book
We will be promoting the book written by two former doctors at Princes Park Health Centre, Katy Gardner and Susannah Graham-Jones, when it comes, hot off the press, at some time in April. The two women have written a history of the health centre covering a period of some thirty years and detail the innovative, community-minded pioneering work undertaken by a group of amazing doctors and staff who worked and changed the opportunities for health care in Liverpool 8 during this period. The book costs £9.99 and we are now able to take advance orders from anyone interested in purchasing a copy. Just email or phone.
Coming Events - Ruth Burnley's Pop Up Shop
Ruth up-cycles furniture in a room within the gallery and will be using the shop as a pop up venue early in May to display and sell some of the wonderful work she up-cycles. There will also be bric-a-brac on sale, so make a note of this venture in your diaries!
