The Liverpool City Region Halls of Fame

Welcome to the Liverpool City Region Hall of Fame. Every person honoured below has to have either been born, or lived for a significant part of their childhood in the Liverpool City Region.

The 'Halls of Fame' begins with leading academics that have excelled in their chosen fields, amongst the highly distinguished scholars are three 'Nobel Prize' winning scientists.

The second list includes musical artist that have been credited with a No.1 single, either in the United Kingdom or the United States.

The next three lists are attributed to the arts, with film, television and theatre thespians celebrated. All of these actors have won or have been nominated for a major award, the nominations are included inside brackets. None of the awards are repeated in each table, so a BAFTA awarded to somebody for a film, will not be replicated in the television table and vice versa. All of the other selected reputable awards are recognised by the relevant industries to be the leading awards in the field, many other awards have been excluded, they may still be outstanding awards, but they are excluded as they are deemed to be minor in comparison.
