An afternoon visit was arranged to the new Royal Albert Dock Complex, with members exploring the Merseyside Maritime Museum, Tate Liverpool and all the other amenities just starting to spring up out of the previously disused Albert Docks. Who would have thought that, 20 years after this meeting, these facilities would be boosted by a large entertainment venue (the Echo Arena), several luxury hotels and a first-class conference centre (the ACC Liverpool) that has played host to the BAUS Annual Scientific Meeting on several occasions since 2011.
The black-tie Club dinner was held. following a sherry reception, in the Lady Lever Art Gallery (below) at Port Sunlight Village on the Wirral. A private viewing of the gallery was organised before the dinner.
The Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight Village
The gallery holds a unique collection of key paintings by some of the greatest Victorian painters. As well as works by both the early and later Pre-Raphaelites, there is a varied collection of mid and late Victorian masterpieces from artists such as Lord Leighton and Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema.
Port Sunlight itself is the village founded by "Soap King", William Hesketh Lever, in 1888. The village was built to house his soap factory workers and is now home, not only to the art gallery, but also to a fascinating museum, beautiful architecture, stunning parkland and a thriving community.
