Our outstanding (4*) impact is in the top 25% and has increased by 88% since REF2014.

The impacts of our research are diverse and span the development of professional practice, including that of museum and heritage practitioners, musicians, artists and music entrepreneurs; the enhancement of cultural life and identity for museum visitors and music audiences, and for community and youth groups, plus impacts on cultural policy, particularly in relation to cultural heritage and tourism.

From the history of Jazz in Britain to collaborative projects such as exploring photographic archives in partnership with the Open Eye Gallery, and from the new Tung Auditorium and an MA focussing on the Beatles' heritage impact and legacy, the Department’s civic and collaborative focus is clear. Our Institute of Popular Music continues to find innovative ways to bring national and international history to life, and projects exploring phenomena such as K-Pop ensure contemporary relevance.

Our partnerships with institutions such as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, our contributions to the Liverpool City Region Music Board and the Beatles Legacy Group and our support for the recognition by UNESCO as a City of Music provide more avenues for our research to deliver impactful results across the region and beyond.
