One of Liverpool’s most famous visitor attractions, Strawberry Field, has unveiled its calendar of activities for International Beatleweek.

International Beatleweek runs from Wednesday, August 24 to Tuesday, August 30, and provides Beatles fans the opportunity to enjoy a series of live music events including at the famous Cavern Club. 

At Strawberry Field a performance from local pianist Emma Weeks, a variety of Beatles covers from local band, There’s Moo, and a wonderful solo set from acclaimed John Lennon tribute, Jimmy Coburn. This is as well as other activities and performances from the likes of Tom Corfield, the Lockdown Ukulele band, and a magnificent community choir, Sing Your Socks Off. Visitors can also watch Shannon MacDonald, known as “the world’s greatest Beatles artist” for her photo-like Beatles portraits, who will be creating one of her artworks live on site.

Sue Harvey, commercial manager at Strawberry Field, said: 

“International Beatleweek is something our city should be hugely proud of, as we celebrate our most famous sons. I am so excited to welcome everyone from local families to fans from across 40 different countries to Strawberry Field – a place of huge significance in the history of The Beatles – in what promises to be a wonderful week of activity and performances. 

“For almost 70 years, our grounds have been filled with the sounds of joy, laughter and music from the young people who lived and played here – including John Lennon. Let’s keep that tradition alive during International Beatleweek!”

While enjoying the live performances at Strawberry Field, visitors can also take in the interactive visitor exhibition and learn more about the history of the site and how it inspired John Lennon to write the iconic Beatles hit. Visitors can also explore the Lennon Wired art exhibition by renowned pop artist, James Wilkinson, which features artwork created using the microphone leads John Lennon used to record ‘Imagine.’ 

Owned and operated by The Salvation Army, every ticket sale or donation made to Strawberry Field goes toward its Steps to Work mission – to provide sustainable employment opportunities for young people with learning difficulties and other barriers to employment, through training skills and valuable work placements. 

Strawberry Field was also recently recognised by TripAdvisor as a 2022 Travellers’ Choice award-winner for Attractions.
