1967 saw some of the biggest cultural shifts of a generation including the moment ‘avant-garde’ flooded into the mainstream.
Never shy of getting involved, Liverpool played a big part in this movement. This was the year that Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was released by four local lads, The Mersey Sound poetry was published, the Metropolitan Cathedral opened and homosexuality was decriminalised in the UK.
In 2017 we marked this momentous occasion by hosting 67-17: 50 Summers of Love, a season of events and performances inspired by the golden anniversary of that famous ‘Summer of Love’.
The following teaching resource provides links to local and national archives, cultural programmes, exhibitions and events offering curriculum ideas that enable schools to explore the 50 Summers of Love.
