There was a great party atmosphere at FACT on Thursday 24 September 2009. The AND Festival was under way, it was the Long Night and also FACT’s 20th Anniversary.

FACT started as Merseyside Moviola with a small office in the Bluecoat. In 1989 Eddie Berg became the first full time member of staff and the first Video Positive festival was held which included a work by Mike Stubbs. It became FACT in 1997 and the new purpose-built FACT Centre opened in Wood Street in 2003.

It is a fantastic achievement which everyone is rightly proud of and you can read all about in the lovely book which was also launched on Thursday.
