The latest temporary exhibition at World Museum Liverpool sees the museum partner with multi-disciplinary artist Wolfgang Buttress to produce a fascinating insight into the world of bees, how they have adapted to survive since the time of the dinosaur, and how vital they are to the survival of humanity. The exhibition blends interactive displays, sculptures, lights and media across 8 different rooms. The first room contained detailed information about bees, with computer displays covering everything from the anatomy of a bee through to the different species of bees around the world.

SIX Exhibition

The Lowry

Global phenomenon SIX has arguably some of the most iconic costumes of modern musical theatre. The rhinestone clad, Tudor influenced, outfits effortlessly combine the pop princess element with actual royalty for each of the Queens, and are without a doubt one of our favourite elements of the musical. The Lowry have today announced that between 20 July and 3 November 2024, a new exhibition entitled Queens will be run in the Galleries of the Salford venue.

As part of the First Folio exhibition currently on at Shakespeare North Playhouse, Associate Artist Ben Crystal has delivered an absolutely fascinating insight into how the First Folio was made, and what makes the First Folio such an important piece of both literature and history. During the Lights On / Lights Off shows which Ben directed and performed in, he gave brief background details into each of the excerpts of the plays which we both really enjoyed.

Every year, the waterfront of Liverpool is transformed into an outdoor exhibition of light. Artists from around the world bring fantastic light sculptures to different spots around the city to provide a walking trail of art. For 2023, the River of Light is embracing the legacy of Eurovision 2023 with a range of illuminated art pieces that draw on Eurovision and the connection the people of the city will forever have with Ukraine and the rest of Europe.
