I Just Called To Say…..

I Just Called To Say “Bold Street” I Love You

In an effort to allow as many people as possible to contribute to the project, we set up a dedicated Bold Street hotline. The number, 0151 324 1555 allows callers to talk about their memories or indeed impressions of the street. These calls are then transformed into podcasts available via itunes, an example of which can be found here.

The phone number has been promoted for the past two months via the BBC Big Screen in Clayton Sq, Radio Merseyside and a promotional postcard. This line is still active so please ring with your opinions of the exhibition and Bold Street Stories.
