About this event

Join Future Ages Will Wonder artist Yarli Allison on an alternative heritage tour of Liverpool, retracing the paths of research they explored to create their new commission, In 1875 We Met At the Docks of Liverpool 於梨花埠遇上, 2021.

Yarli will be joined by Liverpool-based researcher Yvonne Foley, to uncover and retell the stories which have been hidden or lost throughout the parts of the city, specifically exploring old and new Chinatown, revisiting Liverpool’s rich history as a port city. You can find out more about Yvonne's research here.

In addition to our in-person heritage tours, Yarli Allison will also be joined by researcher Lucienne Loh (University of Liverpool), to host a virtual walking tour of both the real and semi-imagined locations in film, In 1875 We Met At the Docks of Liverpool 於梨花埠遇上, 2021.

Book your free place on the virtual event here.

TOUR INFO

Please note that the tour will cover approximately 30 minutes of walking around Chinatown. We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather!
