MJ Quinn to sponsor Capsule of Culture

MJ Quinn are sponsoring the Royal Liver Building 360’s Capsule of Culture. The project will remember one of the most pivotal and poignant years in world history and will pay tribute to front line workers and include momentos of what has been a historic year. MJ Quinn will have a permanent plaque next to the time capsule which will be displayed at the Royal Liver Building.

A representative from MJ Quinn, along with RU Paul’s Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne, Olympic Gold medalist Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Denise Barrett-Baxendale, chief executive officer at Everton Football Club and Maria Breslin, the first woman editor of the Liverpool Echo, will join Sex and the City actress Kim Cattrall and football icon Trent Alexander-Arnold as part of a stellar line up of individuals who will help decide what goes inside the capsule when nominations have been submitted from the public and schools.

“The time capsule will mark the closing of one decade and the opening of a new one and will commemorate what has been one of the most significant years in world history. It has been a pressing, pivotal and poignant year in so many ways and we’ve still got a quarter of the year remaining. In many ways it has been a year which we have pulled together and there are so many examples of incredible gestures from the people of Liverpool who’ve helped us all pull through. The Capsule of Culture will recognise global events of the year but also moving moments which have defined our wonderful region and that have contributed to our cultural history. This is Liverpool’s way of remembering 2020. It will be on display in the world famous Royal Liver Building permanently.”

Peter Johnson-Treherne, director of Heritage Great Britain,

“MJ Quinn are extremely proud to sponsor the Capsule of Culture. This year, more so than any other in our recent history, is one we should never forget and this project is an amazing way to immortalise all we have experienced. It is also a great honour to be able to pay tribute to our incredible front line workers who have worked so tirelessly to keep us safe throughout 2020. We look forward to reviewing all of the submissions.”

Alan O’Prey, Managing Director of MJ Quinn
