Yes, we're going to a party, party!!
What better place to celebrate Paul's 70th birthday than at Penny Lane in Liverpool?
On Wednesday June 20, the Penny Lane Development Trust will be hosting a special birthday party for Paul from 3pm to 6pm. (And if you're wondering why the party is on the 20th, and not the 18th, the reason is that a special group of visitors are expected but can't make it until the Wednesday.) There are some great surprises planned for the day, and some exclusive raffle prizes on offer too!
The highlight of the day (besides birthday cake!), will doubtless be the performance from the Mersey Beatles. The band will be playing from 3pm for about an hour and have promised a set that includes songs that pay a special tribute to the birthday boy.
Julie, of the Penny Lane Development Trust, told us: "I really want to thank Donna Jackson from the BBFC for supporting the event, and a special thank you to the Mersey Beatles for managing to fit us in to their very busy schedule. Paul McCartney is close to the heart of many who come and say hello to us at Penny Lane and this will be a fitting tribute to an amazing artist."
