Guild of the Brave Poor Things: audio and films from the exhibition

Audio guide and 360 degree film for ‘The Blind School: Pioneering People and Places’

Our exhibition about the School for the Blind at the Museum of Liverpool closed in May 2018. However, we have preserved part of the exhibition in digital form. You can listen to the audio guide directly below: after a short introduction giving orienteering for people at the museum – and to highlight particular objects – much of the story is told by actors. They revive voices from people over 200 years of history, from 18th century founders to pupils evacuated from Liverpool to Wales during the Second World War. Below this, you can experience our 360 degree film of the exhibition.

Writers for this audio were Amy Evans and Pat Hayes. The actors are Jordan Connerty and Beth Hinton Lever. It was recorded by Thinking Film.
