ATIMELINE of photographs, memories, facts, exhibition posters and birthday cards from artists are displayed in Tate Liverpool's Wolfson Gallery to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its opening.

Visitors are encouraged to contribute their own stories or drawings to the free exhibition, which is open until May 27.

They can also look through a selection of exhibition catalogues and add their memories of the Albert Dock to the interactive website makinghistory. albertdock.com from a station within the display, which will remain in the gallery throughout the summer.

The web app is part of Gower Street Estates' Albert Dock: MAKING HISTORY campaign, which reflects the global significance and impact of its place in Liverpool's economic, cultural and social history.

Tate Liverpool is also hosting a series of special events and activities linked to its birthday.

Last week, the Art of Parties featured music and party games inspired by the past 25 years.

Presented by In the Frame, a group of adults with learning disabilities who regularly meet at Tate to plan and deliver activities and events, it was part of the city's LightNight programme.

From Monday, May 27 to Sunday, June 2, families can celebrate the gallery's silver anniversary by creating silvery sculptures from a selection of shiny materials in its Art Dock Studio.

Run by artist Fiona Smith, Shine On is a free activity, suitable for all ages and there is no need to book.

This month, the gallery rehung its collection displays just in time to mark it's 25th anniversary.
