Next Liverpool World Museum Aquarium Meet and Behind Scenes Tour


Right, finally its about time I organised a new meet at the World Museum.

When- 3rd May. 4.30pm - 6.30pm (drinks afterwards)
Where - Liverpool World Museum - L3 8EN
What - Exclusive Access to the museum aquarium, behind the scenes, open access to all off show areas, first look at at new coral research system, new LED lighting etc. Chance to meet some fellow reefers and put faces to names. Depending on interest I may try and attract some trade interest. And, also depending on numbers I may do a talk again if people are interested, but I have very pushed for time so its quite an informal affair this time round.
Im also pleased to say that Ian from Fish no Chips will be on hand to answer questions about the installation of our New Coral Research facility.
Who - Anyone, please add you name to the thread ad Ill update the list on the front page. We have a maximum of 150 places so I imagine we will be fine.
What happens at 6.30? - We get kicked out of the museum and head to a pub, who knows what happens after that!!!! If you think you'll be up for drinks afterwards please say and Ill try and arrange a room in a local pub just for us if there is enough interest.
Do I need to bring anything - No, but we are still looking for coral frags (hard and soft) if you wish to donate anything. In particular we are after any acropora, stylophora and hystrix. Please could you indicate if you are able/willing to donate something and what it is you will be bringing so I can ensure enough tank space etc.

So, put your name down and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Also, let me know if you will require parking and Ill try and sort out free parking for Salty Box members. Free parking is very limited and will be first come first served.

Please please please don't put your name down and then simply not turn up, just be polite and let me know if you cant make it

Cant believe we dont have more interest. It was great fun last time and we will have lots of new stuff for people to see.


Myself and Simon will try to make it as we had such a good time working around Liverpool at 5 in the morning LOL before getting to the hotel and waking up 15min before the train left LOL
