An in-depth exhibition about The Jam at Liverpool’s Cunard Building has been extended after proving a hit with fans from the city and far beyond.
‘About the Young Idea’, curated by frontman Paul Weller’s sister Nicky Weller (pictured) alongside Russell Reader and Den Davis, was initially due to run until 25 September but will now remain open until next month.
A new 6 October closing date has been set for the display, which has been hailed the most comprehensive exploration of the iconic band as it delves into their music, background and social and political impact.
With the waterfront venue currently offering around four times the space and more exhibits than when the exhibition was first shown at London’s Somerset House last year, Nicky says: “We’ve had a fantastic response to the exhibition – everyone who comes through the door can’t get over the size, scale and quality of what’s on offer.
“It’s great to have met people who have travelled to Liverpool just for ‘About the Young Idea’ – last week alone I spoke to visitors from Amsterdam, Scotland, France and the Isle of Man who raved about the exhibition, making me really proud to be involved in the project.
“With just under a month left, myself and the team look forward to welcoming thousands more music fans to the Cunard Building.”
The exhibition is providing a taste of what the Three Graces building can offer to music fans, as the site gets set to become a permanent home for the British Music Experience (BME) from 11 February 2017.
