The Florrie Reborn

Continuing our series of films for the Heritage Lottery Fund, The Florrie Reborn celebrates the stunning transformation of a well-loved Liverpool landmark.

Closed for over 20 years, the 19th-century Jacobean-style building in Toxteth is one of the oldest surviving purpose-built youth clubs in the UK. For nearly a century ‘The Florrie’ was at the heart of some of the toughest areas of Liverpool, providing a centre for young people in the local area. With the help of a £4.13 million award from the Heritage Lottery Fund the Florrie has been transformed from a burnt-out shell back into a thriving and vibrant hub for the local community – both young and old.

The footage our team shot has been supplemented by fantastic 'before' imagery shot by John Scotland – demonstrating exactly what the HLF can help to achieve for places and people.
