Share your stories about the Royal Albert Dock

posted in: News | 0

In 2021, Royal Albert Dock Liverpool will mark 175 years since its official opening by HRH Prince Albert.

To celebrate this milestone in Liverpool’s history, a partnership of organisations is coming together to collect stories and memories of Royal Albert Dock Liverpool throughout its history, and to create a programme of events for 2021.

We are looking for people who have stories to tell about the Albert Dock. Did you work there when it was a complex of docks and warehouses? Or play on the derelict quaysides? Were you involved in the campaign to save and restore the Liverpool waterfront? Or did you ever appear on Richard and Judy’s TV show?

We’re also keen to talk to people who have opinions about the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool now. How can we make it a better place to visit for people of all ages? What kind of events would you like to see? How can we tell the story of these fascinating buildings and the people that made them?

If you would like to take part, join us at Tate Liverpool every day between 1 and 6 April. We will be collecting stories and views in the Tate Exchange space, and sharing the results of a special project with the Florrie and Rotunda community groups.

If you would like to bring a group to the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool, or would like to find out more about the project, contact Kate Rodenhurst on 07956 352 779 or email katerodenhurst@mac.com.

This project is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and led by a partnership of Royal Albert Dock Liverpool, Tate Liverpool, National Museums Liverpool, Rotunda, the Florrie and Re-dock.
