Culture Diary w/c 01-04-2024


Our pick of this week’s arts, design, film and music events from across Liverpool and beyond…

Tuesday – Minority Report 6.30pm @ FACT Liverpool  £11

Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report brings to a close a trio of screenings selected by Liverpool Architectural Society, exploring innovations in design, architecture and tech. Adapted from a novella by Philip K. Dick, it sees Tom Cruise’s head of Precrime – a division identifying and convicting ‘criminals’ prior to a predicted crime being committed – running from a murder accusation.

Wednesday 2:22 A Ghost Story 2.30/7.30pm @ the Liverpool Empire Theatre – from £27.50

Danny Robins’ hit West End production 2:22 A Ghost Story arrives in Liverpool. Those familiar with the writer’s brilliantly entertaining BBC podcasts Uncanny and The Battersea Poltergeist will have a sense of what to expect, as couple Jenny and Sam clash over belief and scepticism. Can the dead really walk again?

Thursday International Slavery Museum and Maritime Museum Public Consultation 12pm @ the Museum of Liverpool – FREE

An opportunity to hear from and speak to architects, FCBStudios, and NML’s project team about the proposed redevelopment of the Grade 1 listed International Slavery and Maritime Museums, as well as possible content and programme.
