Roger McGough by poetry-covered doors

Roger McGough in the workshop with some of the doors for the exhibition

The latest exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool, Liverpool Doors, combines the creative talents of Poetry Society President Roger McGough, book binder and artist Mark Cockram and the students at Liverpool John Moores University, to magical effect. The instalation of doors from across the city - transformed by the team and covered in verse, random objects and lashings of humour - has been described as delightful, "amusing, engaging and very Liverpool" by Seven Streets.

The exhibition opens at 10am today and there is a special gallery talk by Mark Cockram at 2pm.

There will also be a special Private View at the Museum of Liverpool to celebrate the opening on the evening of Thursday 1 March and we have five pairs of tickets to give away. To be in with a chance of winning, just fill in your details on this contact form and send it to us by the closing date – Wednesday 29 February at 12noon.
