As part of Heritage open days, arts organisation Metal will be opening its doors to the public.
Edge Hill Station will be unveiling a new community garden gate, which was especially designed by local schoolchildren as a memorial project to the Blitz attack of November 1940 on Durning Road, the largest loss of life in Liverpool during the Blitz.
Families are most welcome to attend, there will be creative activities outdoors and indoors for children to take part in. Visual artist in residence Anna Mulhearn (winner of the Liverpool Art Prize studio award), who primarily works with video to explore historical events and archival material, will do a workshop that will invite people to animate part of a train ride from Edge Hill to Manchester.
