Family fun in Liverpool at the British Music Experience

Family fun in Liverpool at the British Music Experience

I’m always on the look out for fun things to do as a family in the North West of England, especially for the summer holidays. Liverpool is a city we’ve visited a couple of times now and whenever we go I always wonder why we don’t come more often. It is a wonderful, vibrant city packed with lots of activities and places to visit. On Saturday we were invited to try out the British Music Experience, hosted in the Cunard Building, and their newly launched summer holiday programme.

We are a family of music lovers so this kind of attraction is right up our street, so to speak. With an  walk through of the history of British music from the last 70 years as well as the chance to play instruments and record vocals in the Gibson Brands Interactive Studio!

We had interactive guides full of music and talks on each decade of music, we all enjoyed listening to them even my 6 year old who’d put on the music while exploring the exhibits. I must admit I enjoyed the 1980s onwards the most, it was a real trip down memory lane and I loved sharing it with my girls. From the Spice Girls costumes, to Live Aid memorabilia, there’s so much to take in.

Throughout the holidays there is a storytelling session at 1.30 with percussion and chances for the children to join in with. This is especially good for those with younger children.

The bit we loved the most was definitely the Gibson Interactive Studio, complete with drum kits, keyboards, electric guitars, bass guitars and a vocal booth.

After hours of music we enjoyed some time in the Star Cafe, coffees for the grown ups and lemonade for the girls. I love the style of the cafe and it made me think about painting our dining room in this colour!

We loved our trip and I’d definitely look at going again, it would be great to take friends and family who are staying with us. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone with an interest in contemporary music, and wanting some family fun in Liverpool.

    Ooh this looks like such fun! Music can evoke such emotions and bring back such strong memories – the 80’s/90’s/00’s would be really interesting to experience! Liverpool has been on our list to visit for a while now.

    That place looks amazing and I love the cafe!! I keep thinking about darker colours all over a room for our house, but not sure I’m brave enough to take it beyond one wall. I’ll defo have to remember this place for when we’re next that way. I think Chris in particular, would love it xxx
