Review : British Music Experience , Liverpool

Take a journey back in time to see how music changed the world and everything with happens in between.

With iconic music memorabilia from years gone by to sounds of today, it has interactive screens and games by British Artists and what inspired them to get into music.

Every 20mins there is a concert which takes place in the main hall area, this is a hologram concert from Boy George, which works very well just a shame the background and stage design was a little dull and this didn’t suit the Culture Club frontmans colourful image.

Think yourself a music legend? Well there is a chance to showcase your talents, you can have a go in the Gibson Interactive Studio where you can sing of the mic in a recording studio, here you can select a song you want to sing over with the music and vocals of the artist, I for one had a go on this trying to sing Rod Stewart’s Maggie May, not very well sadly.

So if singing isn’t your thing which I personally found out wasn’t mine, you could have a go on a keyboard, drums or even a guitar, there were quite a few guitars to choose from all of which had their own booth and stall to sit on, plus designed and inspired by the artist who made them famous or played them live on stage.

If you’ve still not had enough there is a dance room where you can really get your rave on, choosing the type of dance moves you want to perform or learn.

Around the experience there are tv screens showing music over the years, with the added selections to look at and read, this was a very enjoyable experience.

The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout, with a nice little wife shop to pick yourself up a souvenir to member the time you’ve had.

If that wasn’t enough, you cannot beat the location, Liverpool being the musical city that it already is, once you’ve enjoyed the British Music Experience you can head over to the Mersey and catch boat ride on the Mersey Ferry or just have a cuppa in the FAB Four cafe and look around the qift shops, your ticket to the British Music Experience is valid all day, so why not make a day of it as there is so much to see and do you’ll struggle to fit it all in.

In my early days I had a passion for video games of all kinds, which lead to myself and a number of close friends and family creating a gaming clan and community called UKRockers. After 10 years UKRockers disbanded which lead to myself and brother (RockerJarvis) creating ItsMuchMore.

I still enjoy playing games now can be anything from retro, indie to today’s biggest and best titles, it isn’t just computer or video games that I enjoy doing I also like to go to the Theatre and Cinema.
