Work has been taking place behind the scenes on a brand-new visitor experience, which will open later this year at the iconic Liverpool landmark, St George’s Hall.
The History Whisperer will be the focal point of a new attraction at St George’s Hall located in the heart of the UNESCO Word Heritage Site – set to open late in the summer.
Behind the new addition is a team of the country’s leading tech organisations:
- Gazooky Studios – a BAFTA and Prix Europa award-winning storytelling and world class XR technology company.
- Immersive Interactive – specialists in mesmerising touch-wall interactivity
- Music in Mind – an industry-leader when it comes to creating rousing, witty and deeply moving music and sound effects.
The consortium was officially appointed back in February after successfully responding to the Hall’s tender process, following a £250,000 award from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, which formed part of the government’s Culture Recovery Fund.
This funding will pave the way for the new visitor experience, which will be a welcome addition to the Hall’s mission to recover following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Details of the attraction are being kept under wraps, but audiences can expect to be plunged into a world where the past meets the present, and the fascinating social history of Victorian Liverpool and St George’s Hall comes to life.
An official opening date for #TheHistoryWhisperer will be announced in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, the consortium is appealing to members of the public to share their memories of St George’s Hall through photographs and videos. These will potentially form part of the attraction.
