Inside Julia Lennon’s House

I had the opportunity to take a look inside 1 Blomfield Road, home to Julia Lennon, her partner John “Bobby” Dykins and their daughters Julia and Jackie.

John, of course spent a lot of time there with his mother and family. It was here that Julia taught John how to play banjo chords on his guitar, and so much more.

Come inside with me now:

The Beatles at EMI on 6th June 1962 – the day it all changed!

When The Beatles went down to EMI Studios on 6th June 1962, were they under contract or was it an audition?

This was the day that would change the story of the Beatles forever. It would lead to the Beatles obtaining their recording contract from Parlophone and working with George Martin.

It also led to the end of the road for Pete Best in the Beatles.
