THE British Music Experience has announced a recruitment day in the run up to Christmas in the innovative form of an audition. The UK’s museum of popular music is opening to the public at Liverpool’s iconic Cunard Building on the 11 February next year and is creating more than 60 new jobs, 40 of which will be filled following live auditions at the venue itself on Saturday 10 December. With tickets now on sale, the exciting new visitor attraction is seeking talented and dynamic team members for Front of House Visitor Experience, Retail and Catering. Ian Gardner, Venue and Operation Manager, said: “We’re looking for people from all walks of life, different backgrounds and age groups. The idea of the audition is to have a bit of fun but also to let people shine and show their true selves in a non-formal environment. The people of Liverpool and the North West are rightly world famous for being brimful of soul and character, that’s what we want to see at the audition.” To reach the auditions applicants must register their interest by emailing email@example.com and then complete a short form. Candidates will then be given something to present to the panel of experts in any way they choose with those successful going straight through to the interview round. The British Music Experience – the newest addition to Liverpool’s colourful music offering – will have its permanent home in the first-class passenger lounge of the iconic Cunard Building. The national museum of popular music is operated by TBL International, a fine addition to its roster of award winning endeavours such as the world class attraction Titanic Belfast. Construction is well underway at the Cunard Building ahead of the BME’s opening date of 11 February 2017. Tickets are now on sale for this state of the art attraction that boasts cutting edge technology alongside over 600 amazing artefacts dating back from 1945 right up to the present day. All of this is in its beautiful new home on Liverpool’s Waterfront. Liverpool’s reputation as the birthplace of British pop music continues to live up to its name, there is no other British city that has created as many number one singles which makes it the perfect fit for the UK’s only attraction that showcases the history of popular music to this extent. The story is told against a social and political backdrop giving the visitor some context of what has influenced the artists, bands, fans and audiences into the world famous creative industry it is today. Visitors will travel through a timeline of amazing artefacts and audio visual immersive zones with opportunities to play, dance, sing and relive the soundtrack of their lives. Bringing the British Music Experience to Liverpool will provide the local area with over 60 jobs and a projected 200,000 visitors through the door in its first year.
