Liverpool Volunteers Wanted


2017 is the 50th anniversary of the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. As part of their Jubilee Celebrations, MBD are creating a fascinating oral archive project where they will record 50 interviews to capture a variety of historic occasions connected to the Cathedral.

As part of this project we are looking for volunteers to form a research group who will enjoy a series of lectures and research trips whilst learning technical skills in recording audio footage. If you are passionate about local heritage, have some free time and would like to meet some new people please contact Esther Simpson on: esther@metro-boulot-dodo.com or call 07939190389 to sign up.
