Official Launch of the Liverpool Mural Project's first mural

Wendy and I were delighted, if not actually thrilled, to attend the launch of the first ever LMP Mural.

It was Beatles' Day and the Lathom Club with its rich Beatles history was an ideal place from which to promote the first mural which features John Lennon and the Beatles, which is just up the street, very timely and very relevant!

We were spellbound by a presentation from a Sociologist from Belfast (I think) who talked about the history of the gable-end mural in Belfast and then a Q&A from mural painters from the Loyalist and the Republic movement.

We are very excited about the possibility of having our own mural in Kensington and hope to find the funding to make it happen.

We will include the local community in the development of the design but in the meantime we are looking for a suitable Gable End and ask all people of K&F to come forward with possible sites.

It is going to be awesome!

Peter and Greg and the NI artists have been magnificent, now it is our turn to rise to the challenge.
