Inside St. George’s Hall, whicb is worth a visit anyway, is a new statue of John Lennon, only on display until the end of August. Don’t miss it! You will be able to hear my interview with Laura on our podcast, Liddypod, next week.

Double Fantasy at Museum of Liverpool

An absolute must is the Double Fantasy exhibit at the Museum of Liverpool at the Pier Head. With many exhibits from Yoko Ono, this unique exhibition about John and Yoko has to be seen. Uniquely curated for Liverpool, it is ending in November. An incredible exhibition.

BBC RADIO MERSEYSIDE – Sunday 8.30am

On Sunday morning at 8.30am on BBC Radio Merseyside, I have recorded a 30 minute programme about The Beatles and religion/spirituality, listening to some great Beatles songs too. It is on 95.8 FM.

Convention at the Adelphi

Don’t miss the convention at the Adelphi on Sunday. I will be there with a few copies of Liddypool, some Fab one hundred and Four plus my new book, Finding the Fourth Beatle.

Find out about the 23 drummers who put the Beat in The Beatles!

And, if you haven’t discovered my crime faction book yet, “Inspector Rocke”, I will have a few copies of that one too.

Come and say hello!

Other Must-Do Must-See places

Don’t forget to do the Ferry cross the Mersey, the Beatles Story (Royal Albert Dock) and the British Music Experience at the Pier Head, which has the “Lost Beatles Tapes” this weekend.

There is also the Magical Beatles Museum on Mathew Street, with many great exhibits linked to the Casbah (which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this weekend!)

Of course, I have to mention The Cavern, who continue to put on an incredible Beatles festival every year. Well done everyone involved.

Plus the many wonders of Liverpool itself!
