The Library

Just as Hampton Group is named for the London suburb where the company was founded in 2005, The Library blog is named for the historic building that now serves as our UK Headquarters – The Old Library in Hampton Hill.

Hampton Group Becomes an Advisory Partner to National Museums Liverpool

Hampton Group is pleased to announce it has become an advisory partner to National Museums Liverpool (NML). Under the framework of this partnership, Hampton Group provides advice to NML on its relationships with businesses and individuals with an interest in China and the China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors exhibition.

Hampton Group Vice President Andrew Methven said ‘It has been a pleasure to work with campaign director Martin Kaufman and the National Museums Liverpool team in supporting this exhibition over the past six months. The objectives of the exhibition are very much aligned with the mission of Hampton Group, which is to promote “communication across cultures” and also improve understanding and cultural exchange between China and the UK.’

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to visit the China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors exhibition before it closes on 28 October. They will be immersed in Chinese cultural heritage and come face to face with 10 figures from the First Emperor’s burial site – one of the world’s greatest archaeological discoveries.

In an interview before the exhibition’s opening ceremony, David Fleming, Director, National Museums Liverpool stated that ‘The Terracotta Warriors exhibition is surely one of the most important exhibitions we have ever held here. It is an unmissable opportunity to see some of the terracotta army up close.’

While celebrating the past, the China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors exhibition also speaks to the present and future. Xi’an was the eastern starting point of the ancient Silk Road, a precursor to the Belt and Road Initiative which is now driving development in countries across Asia, Africa and Europe.

At the opening ceremony, Chinese Ambassador to the UK, His Excellency Liu Xiaoming, recognised the prescience and importance of the exhibition, stating that it ‘serves as a bridge of understanding and friendship in the “Golden Era” of China-UK relations, and opens a window on today’s Belt and Road Initiative.’

Hampton Group wishes the ongoing China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors exhibition every success now that it is open, and looks forward to working with National Museums Liverpool throughout the run of the exhibition.
