Portraits of Port Sunlight

This special exhibition at the Lyceum offers a glimpse behind the front doors of Port Sunlight houses.

Photographer Pete Carr was commissioned in 2017 to document modern life in the village, and the result is a series of intimate portraits of Port Sunlight residents at home. The exhibition also includes objects from Port Sunlight’s many clubs and societies, and recent work from our arts and crafts workshop programme.

It is open at the Lyceum from 11am – 4pm everyday from 3rd – 9th March
