The Williamson and Priory Friends “Gala gals” team are building on the success of their gala for Dr Andy Gotts in 2014 for the BAFTA Behind the Mask exhibition and have invited back the Speakeasys, The Night and Days and MerseySwing. The evening will celebrate friendship and collaboration which is the underlying theme for the three exhibitions that will be the backdrops of the evening.

Bugsy Malone Wirral

In Gallery One, the BAFTA exhibition which has come about through a thirty year friendship started in Edinburgh College of Art’s jewellery department and relationship that has developed between BAFTA and the Wirral Museums Service.


In Gallery Two, the exhibition “Tinted Steam and Liquid Light” -a collaboration between The Atkinson in Southport and the Williamson showcasing their fabulous watercolours collections,
and finally in Gallery Three, there will be an exhibition which will bring together 5 five organisations who have been working with Mencap.


The 1920s theme of the movie will suit the surroundings as the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum was built in 1928 with lovely plaster details throughout the building so dress up 1920s style or whatever makes you happy and comfortable.

Flappers, gangsters and dapper gents all welcome but leave your splatterguns at the door.

The night will end around 10pm.
