THE Florrie has extended one of its most sought free after pop up exhibitions Next Stop New York.

Opening during the "Super Weird Happening" event on April 1, the exhibition, due to popular demand, has been extended until the April 18.

It will reflect the impact of Black American music and the crucial role of Liverpool 8 - in the development and expression of popular music in Liverpool.

Through rarely seen photographs, posters and flyers the event recalls a neglected but crucial era of the city's Black music heritage from the late 50’s to the mid 80’s.

These beautiful, evocative set of images are a mix of candid snapshots and sharp urban landscapes  featuring some of the fascinating musicians, bands, events, clubs and characters that have contributed to the city’s rich and diverse musical heritage.

The collection explores a highly productive and influential, yet harsh and tumultuous time; musically, culturally and politically.

Chris Bernard at the Florrie said: "I was reminded of the late Lady Simey’s words “The magic of Liverpool is that it isn’t England.

"We are global and we have learned to tolerate and respect each other’s traditions. As such, we are a national asset" - a timely sentiment."

  5. Hardly matters if you are an expert of online cricket games. Betting in India or just a beginner. What matters is that you must owe the inside out knowledge of cricket online betting in India. It is only the basic concept that a bettor can consider while online betting but not all. You must know the game by its core if you wish to win the bets you place.
