Inspired by Lady Lever

Admission Free
Start Time 10:00

A fabulous gown created for Lady Lever will go on display for the first time in this display celebrating 100 years of history at Lady Lever Art Gallery, and the life of the woman it’s named after.

Elizabeth Lever was a support and inspiration to her husband throughout the development of Lever’s business, Lever Brothers, and the building of the village of Port Sunlight. Although Lord Leverhulme named the gallery after his wife, who died in 1913, there is very little in the gallery about Elizabeth herself.

A recent rediscovery in the gallery store of a court dress, which belonged to Elizabeth, has provided the opportunity to exhibit this personal piece of history of Elizabeth Lever and to shed more light on her story.
