ON Saturday 1st August 2020 The British Music Experience, situated on Liverpool’s Pier Head is safely reopening in line with government guidance.
The museum, housed in the stunning Cunard Building will once again open its doors to guests, who will be able to explore the last 75 years of British Rock and Pop History with visitor and staff safety measures in place. The BME has recently achieved the Good to Go industry standard seal of approval for following coronavirus prevention government guidance.
The British Music Experience will open from 10am – 6pm, from Wednesday to Sunday with limited tickets available each day and recommended advanced booking. Tickets will be bookable in 15 minute slots with strictly limited capacity allowed into the space at any one time.
Guests will be able to enjoy the airy, cavernous former Cunard first class passenger terminal which houses the museum along with the Merch shop, Dance the Decades, Hologram performances and the Gibson Interactive Studio.
All 600 stage outfits, instrument and artefacts will be showcased including The Beatles, David Bowie, Queen, Elton John, The Spice Girls, Adele, Little Mix and many more.
A one-way system is in place throughout the museum to allow for social distancing. Guests will be able to enjoy the BME’s approved audio guides, although you’ll need to bring your own headphones. Extra cleaning measures will be in place including hand sanitising stations available throughout the experience with anti-bacterial wipes that can be used before and after using any of the BME’s interactive activities.
The BME’s café will open as a take-out only option to start with, before moving back to a seated eatery in due course, and the museum is moving to a cashless model and will take cards and contactless payments only for the foreseeable future.
Further announcements regarding the BME’s usually vibrant calendar of events and temporary exhibitions will be released over the coming weeks.
The British Music Experience is a registered not-for-profit charity with the purpose of advancing the education and appreciation of the art, history and science of music in Britain.
