BIRKENHEAD poet Adrian Henri’s artwork was showcased at secret event as part of Tonight At Noon.

Catching the last day of the four-month free exhibition beside the cells of St George’s Hall offered an insight into the works of the great wordsmith.

Curated by Catherine Marcangeli the artworks, poems and original rock posters offer a glimpse of Adrian’s many talents.

Tonight At Noon celebrated fifty years since the publication of The Mersey Sound by poets such as Adrian Henri, Roger McGough and Brian Pattern as part of the 67 - 17: 50 Summers of Love celebration.

The Mersey Sound has had an impact, direct or distant, on several generations of writers and performers in the city and beyond. 

Liverpool will play host to a season of events, performances and ideas many inspired by the role which the city played in 1967.

Regarded as a ‘total artist’ Adrian had trained as a painter and fronted the poetry fused rock band Liverpool Scene.

In 1969 the band supported the almighty Led Zeppelin, played the Isle of Wight Festival and toured America.

In his life Adrian took on many roles such as artist, poet, teacher and playwright.

The gallery included posters from Adrian's time in Liverpool Scene and boards expressing his poetry such as I Want To Paint, Morning Song and Death Of A Bird In The City.
