Review: Start the season off right with a Beatles Christmas Sweater

Looking for something Beatle-y to wear this Christmas season? The Geek Store has the perfect solution with their Official Beatles Christmas Jumper / Sweater featuring a HELP! motif in a nighttime Christmas surround. Officially licensed by The Beatles and designed and engineered by numskull® Designs. The label also says "Made in England".

It is available in a wide variety of sizes to fit just about anyone. What I liked most is that the material is soft and comfortable to wear, it doesn’t feel tight, and it is a nice length reaching the hips. Most importantly, the design is knitted and not just ironed on so no worries about the design coming off in the wash.  The fabric (100% acrylic) is actual two layers (the inside is yellow) which makes it nice and warm as well. 

It is overall very nice quality and much nicer that some of the other Christmas sweaters out there, but my sample did have one small flaw – the snow part of the design along the bottom is well matched on one side seam but off by nearly two inches on the other side seam. Minor and the photographer who took these photos did not notice the flaw until it was pointed out. 

You can learn more and purchase one HERE. However, I noticed that they have a special on at the time this was posted for "buy one get a second one half off" on all their Christmas jumpers, so maybe you can get one for you and one for a friend!

Writers are being given a further chance to celebrate the Beatles in drama.

The Make it Write team is joining Ticket to Write to stage four new 30-minute plays about Liverpool’s Fab Four next year.

The plays will be chosen by independent judges and Make it Write will chose a director and bring together a team of actors and stage crew to perform those chosen at Hope Street Theatre in June 2020.

“As usual the plays can feature any aspect of The Beatles – their music, work or lives. They can even be inspired by a song. The work must be original unperformed work with simple technical requirements,” said producer Jamie Gaskin, who created the original Festival in 2012.

“In keeping with the popularity TTW abroad at least one play chosen will be from an overseas writer,” he added.
