An example of Harcourt's collaboration with artists and designers is The British Music Experience - the UK’s Museum of Popular Music.
Featuring state-of-the-art effects, iconic memorabilia and artefacts from almost every major artist and musical movement since WWII, the attraction is located in the spectacular Cunard Building, one of Liverpool’s landmark Three Graces lining the city’s waterfront.

What first hit me upon arrival at the Grade II*-listed Cunard Building was the sheer splendour of the place. The BME is a welcome addition to Liverpool’s already substantial museum offering with a wide range of genuinely fascinating items that casual music fans and rock snobs alike will enjoy.

Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, said: “Music is inherent here and is entwined with the city’s history, present and future. The Cunard Building itself played a vital role in shaping the industry thanks to the music that travelled across the Atlantic by those travelling on the Cunard vessels. This music then immersed itself in our culture and influenced many aspiring musicians, including four young men who wanted to perform their own rock ‘n’ roll and then went on to become the most famous band in the world.”
