‘Above All: Inside the Littlewoods Dream Factory’ film screening

Opening: 29/09/22 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM | Free

Join us for a special screening of Above All: Inside the Littlewoods Dream Factory, ​​a new animated film that explores and responds to the unique history of the Littlewoods building on Edge Lane.

Built in 1938 to house the Moores brothers’ Pools empire, an almost all-female workforce operated from the Edge Lane building, sorting and collating the weekly Pools coupons. Celebrate the heritage of Littlewoods, learn about this iconic building and share your own memories of, and connections to, the space.

The film is a collaboration between three local artists: animator Laura Spark, writer Jeff Young and musician Jezebel Halewood-Leagas, and has been developed through research into the Littlewoods archive, conversations with ex-employees and workshops with local school children. It has been produced in partnership with Liverpool John Moores, Metal and the Littlewoods community.
