Laugh it OFf : a heritage lottery funded project

Humour is the oxygen of the city of Liverpool.


This project is exploring the historical role of humour in Liverpool's resilience and what that means for wellbeing in the present day. Our young participants are learning about humour and comedy and in turn, create a wellbeing toolkit, exhibition and research the history and heritage of Liverpool's funny bone
