It's fifty years since The Mersey Sound was first published. One of the best-selling poetry anthologies of all time, it featured poems by Liverpool poets, Roger McGough, Brian Patten and Adrian Henri.

It revolutionised the traditional boundaries of the genre, bringing poetry down from the dusty shelf and onto the street.

Two acclaimed Lancaster University poets - Professor Paul Farley and Professor Paul Muldoon - revisit the book, and the work of the 'Liverpool Poets' to read some of the poems, compare sleeve notes and wonder at what happened when poetry went Pop.

Doors will open at 6pm when free tea and coffee will be served. Complimentary refreshments will be served afterwards.
