The vigil will take place at the European Peace Monument dedicated to John Lennon at the Echo arena Liverpool, Kings Dock, Liverpool Waterfront on Thursday, December 8, 2011, from 7 pm to 8:30 pm. This will be the second year that the city has marked the occasion at the Peace Monument.
|Fans at last year's Peace Monument vigil|
Since its unveiling by Julian and Cynthia Lennon on October 9th 2010 the monument, entitled "Peace & Harmony", has become a popular focal point for visitors to the Beatles home city looking to celebrate Lennon's life and message of peace through his music.
The annual peace vigil is being organised by Liverpool's award-winning Beatles Story, the attraction responsible for bringing the European Peace Monument to Liverpool.
Jerry Goldman, Managing Director of The Beatles Story, said, "The eyes of the world will be on Liverpool once again as we celebrate the life of John Lennon with our annual peace vigil. Last year's event was a wonderful success and was covered by newspapers, TV and radio all over the world. We look forward to building on the legacy of last year's vigil to create a night to remember for all those people that attend."
