Looking for something to do? We run an eclectic and exciting events and exhibitions programme aimed at both families and adult visitors. It ranges from crafts and performances to road races and much more!
Our new exhibition at Port Sunlight Museum explores how William Lever made his soap company into a household name and worldwide brand. You’ll be able to discover the innovative approach Lever took with advertisements, selling an aspiration rather than just focusing on the product itself, and we tell the stories of some of the company’s most famous publicity campaigns. A display of children’s novelty gifts demonstrates how Lever Brothers encouraged brand loyalty from a young age, and maps and product samples explore how the company organised their travelling salesmen. You can also find out how Port Sunlight itself was tied into the brand image through local scenes appearing on packaging, railway posters, newspaper adverts and company guides taking visitors around the village. This is a very colourful exhibition with nostalgic displays of vintage packaging and a recreated grocers shop.
