FRIDAY, 24 MAY 2024

Today, the late Beatles legend George Harrison was commemorated with a prestigious Historic England Blue Plaque at his birthplace and childhood home, 12 Arnold Grove, Wavertree. The plaque was unveiled by his widow, Olivia Harrison, in a heartfelt ceremony celebrating Harrison’s profound impact as a music icon, songwriter, and humanitarian, and his deep connection to Liverpool. 

  

Nice! When I was in Liverpool two years ago, I didn’t see anything around 12 Arnold Grove that referred to George being born there. The childhood homses of Paul and John had of course signs by the National Trust and Ringo’s crib had a huge mural painting on the side of the Empress Pub.

Oh, I didn’t catch on that different entities did blue plaques. Yes, a little background on the different ones and which Beatles ones issued by each group would be helpful.  

I’m looking into this, @Ahhh Girl, but it may take a while because there are quite a number of plaques – and I have some major work projects at the moment.  I’ll let you know when I have compiled the info.

Hello lads and ladies. After securing tickets for the Macca Got Back tour in Manchester on 14th December 24 I plan to visit Liverpool before the concert. 

My plan is to arrive in Manchester in Tuesday evening and then head for Liverpool on Wednesday. My question would be: how many days should I plan for Liverpool. I want to see the birthhouses, Cavern Club, Penny Lane , Strawberry Fields, The Beatles Story, maybe the Liverpool Beatles Museum, the statues on the big placa. I want to see anything there is to see. Ringos Sentimental Journey House and so on. 

Do you think 3 days (Wed-Friday) is enough? We would travel to Manchester on Friday evening or Saturday morning for the concert.

A GAME OF THE MIND
On 6th July, 2024, to celebrate the upcoming release of JOHN LENNON MIND GAMES (The Ultimate Collection), Universal Music Group and The John Lennon Estate invite fans to come to Liverpool and take part in a Treasure Hunt across JOHN LENNON’S LIVERPOOL.

The Treasure Hunt is a fun, family-friendly day which will give fans a unique experience in John’s home town, beginning at 9am on 6th July at Liverpool Town Hall (High Street, Liverpool L2 3SW).

Using the unique map of JOHN LENNON’S LIVERPOOL created by fine artist Ed Fairburn, locations (to be revealed on the day) across the city with a special relationship to John will have hidden QR codes, to be scanned by fans using their phone camera.

Maps will be available at Liverpool Town Hall from 9am on the day.

Get ready by signing up at citizenofnutopia.com.

Everyone who takes part in this event will get a chance to win a prize depending on how many locations they capture – and the first person to scan the QR codes at every location will win the grand prize of a Super Deluxe MIND GAMES (The Ultimate Collection) Box Set worth £1,350.

More details and the rules for taking part will be released on johnlennon.com in the coming weeks, so make sure to follow John Lennon (on X / Instagram / Facebook) for further information. We can’t wait to see you in Liverpool!

The event is presented by Universal Music Group and the John Lennon Estate in association with Red And Grey Creative.

@KyleKartan I think that is a good amount of time. I quite enjoyed the Fab Four Taxi Tour when I visited Liverpool, it’s great for visiting many of the different Beatle locations in a short space of time. You go to a lot of their childhood homes, the church where Paul and John met, the grave of Eleanor Rigby , Penny Lane , Strawberry Fields, then you get dropped off at the Cavern on Mathew Street. (I haven’t been on the Magical Mystery bus tour, this is similar but it seems like you can’t get out of the vehicle as often.)

You must must must go on the National Trust tour of inside Paul and John’s homes. This was the place that made me the most emotional, it feels magical. And the statues by the docks as you mentioned. 

I did enjoy the Beatles Story museum, although it feels like a commercial place. A non Beatles fan would enjoy it very much, but it doesn’t feel as authentic as the actual places The Beatles lived and visited (in my opinion). I think you mentioned that your fiance wasn’t as much of a diehard fan, so they might enjoy this museum!

New – A Hard Day’s Night exhibit at The Beatles Story. The story doesn’t say how long the exhibit will be there. I hope some Forumpudians can see it. 

https://www.beatlesstory.com/n…..ncement/  (Click on the link and be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page and watch what happens. I’ve not seen that on a website before. I like.)

Snippets from the article

Step on set and become immersed in recreations of key scenes from the movie. Walk onto the platform at Marylebone Station and relive iconic clips from the film.

Come face-to-face with pieces of original memorabilia from 1964, including a very rare copy of the “A Hard Day’s Night” album signed on the front by all four Beatles, as well as original movie posters, lobby cards and cinema tickets!

For the special exhibition, The Beatles Story have worked with tailor Gordon Millings to recreate the silver-grey suits worn by the Fab Four in the final scenes of the movie “A Hard Day’s Night” using the original patterns drawn in 1964. On working with The Beatles Story, Gordon Millings said:

“Reviving the silver-grey suits from ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ has allowed me to honour my father’s legacy and the lasting influence of The Beatles. By using my father’s original patterns and fabric from the same Savile Row supplier, as well as the original techniques used by my father and I in 1964, we’ve recreated the suits with great attention to detail. This collection of suits is a bridge between past and present, and I cannot wait for fans to see them.”
