|Liverpool St Barnabas Church Beatles celebration this weekend|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Wednesday, 08/26/09 7:41 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
St Barnabas Church on Penny Lane in Liverpool is hosting its annual Beatles weekend event this weekend.
St Barnabas Church is on the corner of Allerton Road and Penny Lane in South Liverpool and not only can they see most of the sights mentioned in the Beatles' song "Penny Lane" from their doorways, but Paul McCartney also sang in their choir when he was a youngster. Not only that, but Paul's brother Mike McCartney married Rowena in the church and Paul was there as Mike's best man along with his much-loved wife Linda.
The people of Liverpool love their church and they love the Beatles so they're celebrating this August Bank Holiday Weekend with a special Beatles Event throughout the whole 3 days.
Festivities include an exhibition of rare Beatles photographs over the 3 days, kindly provided by the Liverpool Echo, a sing song followed by a Beatles themed quiz on Saturday night, and a local history archive photographic exhibition all weekend. There will also be a Beatles themed service at 3pm on Sunday.
Entrance to all of these events is Free!
Opening times are Saturday the 29th August from 11am until 10pm, Sunday the 30th August from 2pm until 5pm, and Monday the 31st August from 11am until 4pm. For more information, visit pennylaneliverpool.merseyside.org.
