Kirkby Gallery – Teacher First Preview – Made on Merseyside
Thursday 19 September, 3.45 – 4.30pm (followed by the exhibition launch, 4.30 – 6.30pm)
Behind the Scenes Walk & Talk
This exhibition celebrates and showcases industry in Knowsley, the goods produced here and the people who made them. It shares the stories of businesses large and small, past and present.
At the heart of the exhibition are objects, photos and footage of colleagues, factories and products, loaned from a variety of individuals and organisations, as well drawing upon Prescot Museum’s collection. Bringing it all to life will be a refreshed montage of film and audio clips of various local history projects, footage and personal interviews. Some of these interviews have been conducted in the months leading up to the exhibition, so as to capture more recent experiences and memories not previously documented.
Businesses and companies featuring in the exhibition include: Amazon Studios, Tinling's, Huntley and Palmer, Lancashire Watch Company, Leather Satchel Company, Kirkby Tyres, Cronton and Whiston Collieries, Royal Ordnance Factory, Hornby Meccano, BICC, English Electric and many more.
These Teacher First events are an opportunity for teaching staff to see this exhibition before it opens to the public and learn more about how and when you can use the gallery for school visits. Our bespoke educational activity sheets specially designed for this exhibition will be available at this event.
