What’s on

Looking for something to do? We run an eclectic and exciting events and exhibitions programme aimed at both families and adult visitors. It ranges from crafts and performances to road races and much more!


Selling Sunlight  

Our special exhibition at Port Sunlight Museum explores how William Lever made his soap company into a household name and worldwide brand. You’ll be able to discover the innovative approach Lever took with advertisements, selling an aspiration rather than just focusing on the product itself, and we tell the stories of some of the company’s most famous publicity campaigns. A display of children’s novelty gifts demonstrates how Lever Brothers encouraged brand loyalty from a young age, and maps and product samples explore how the company organised their travelling salesmen. You can also find out how Port Sunlight itself was tied into the brand image through local scenes appearing on packaging, railway posters, newspaper adverts and company guides taking visitors around the village. This is a very colourful exhibition with nostalgic displays of vintage packaging and a recreated grocers shop.

Summer in Port Sunlight 

Join us for a Summer of outdoor Theatre Performance!

The amazing Folksy Theatre return with TWO special shows in August 2020. These extra special performances are showcased in the unique setting of The Dell in Port Sunlight Village.

The Dell is one of the original creek’s that ran through the village, it was dammed and a landscaped park was created. At the eastern end stood The Auditorium, originally conceived of as an open-air theatre,  this area was used for village and company events before being dismantled in 1937. Experiencing a Folksy Theatre performance in this location is a true piece of history!

‘All’s Well That Ends Well’  – Saturday 8th August 2020

This classic Shakespeare’s tale of unrequited love. Helen, the orphaned daughter of a doctor, is in love with Bertram, the countess’ unloving son. When ordered by the king to marry her, Bertram refuses and leaves for war, saying that he will only accept Helena if she obtains a ring from his finger and becomes pregnant with his child.

Here begins our tale of passion, trickery and deceit and the lengths one will go to for love. Filled with Folksy’s wonderful live music, audience interaction and downright silliness!

The show starts at 7pm. For more info and to purchase tickets: www.folksytheatre.co.uk
