The Voyage That Never Ends

31 October 2009

A day-long journey by ferry, coach and foot tracing Malcolm Lowry’s early Merseyside years, as part of the Bluecoat's 2009 Malcolm Lowry Centenary.

The idea for this psychogeographical day to find - or get lost - in the Wirral of Malcolm Lowry's youth came from writer and academic Mark Goodall. The day comprised a ferry and bus tour and walk led by Wirral Lowry expert Colin Dilnot, visiting resonant sites in his biography and writing, including Lowry's birthplace in New Brighton. The second half of the day, at the Bluecoat, featured films, a talk and live music.

The psychogeographical walking tour of resonant Malcolm Lowry sites on the Wirral was led by Colin Dilnot and included stopping outside the Clarence Hotel in New Brighton. The writer was christened Clarence Malcolm Lowry.
