About Summer of Love
1967 saw some of the biggest cultural shifts of a generation and the moment the avant-garde forced its way into the mainstream. Never a city to shy from getting involved, Liverpool played a big part in this movement – it 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 will be celebrating that famous Summer of Love by hosting 67-17: 50 Summers of Love – a season of events and performances inspired by the golden anniversary of the Summer of Love between 12 April – 3 September.
