The Virtual Chicago Fest starts today at 5pm (Chicago Time CDT) so it is gonna be busy at also slightly weird to make sure I turn up at the right time!
My first panel is tonight at 6.30pm (CDT) which is 12.30am (UK time), where I will be talking with Jim Berkenstadt (The Beatles Who Vanished) and filmmaker Simon Weitzman. Our discussion is about Filmmaking – our current and future Beatles film projects. Some exciting news and information to share.
Saturday is going to be busy, but great fun.
Firstly, the formal announcement of the new book I have written with Richard Porter and Susan Ryan: The Beatles Fab Four Cities.
Find out what it is all about at 1pm (CDT) which is 7pm (UK Time).
Then straight over to the Main Stage where I am interviewing Carol Phillips, daughter of the legendary Lord Woodbine, whose story has rarely been told, and then it is often wrong!
Don’t miss that at 2pm (CDT) which is 8pm (UK).
And finally on Saturday, a fantastic panel, which has been titled: “Black Artists’ Influence on The Beatles from Liverpool to the US”.
This should be an incredible panel presentation and discussion.
I get Sunday off so I can just enjoy the rest of the Fest! Hope you do too.
The list of special guests is amazing!
