LIVERPOOL’S BEATLES STORY TO HOST A TWO DAY BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION REMEMBERING THE LIFE OF GEORGE HARRISON


John's image projected onto the Albert Dock in 2010;
the Beatles Story will project an image of George
for his birthday this year.
The Beatles Story attraction is to mark what would have been the 70th birthday of George Harrison with a weekend of activities aimed at informing and entertaining thousands of visitors to the award-winning attraction.

Taking place across Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th February, visitors will be able to meet other fans to celebrate and engage even deeper with a musical icon.

Described by many as ‘the quiet Beatle’, Harrison left the world an enduring legacy that bridges music and Eastern philosophies.

The Beatles Story will explore this legacy in many ways across the two days by:-

  • Hosting a special George workshop for visiting children in the Discovery Zone where they can learn to make origami lotus flowers in the recreation Beatles Story garden
  • Dressing The Cavern Stage with photos and flowers in tribute to George
  • Projecting a huge image of George onto the (wonder) wall of the iconic Albert Dock taken by photographer Paul Berriff
  • Allowing visitors to have their photo taken next to Beatles Story’s own waxwork statue of George
  • Playing George’s music throughout the Beatles Story
  • Giving out George’s favourite Jelly Babies to people on entry to Beatles Story


Since his untimely death in 2001, George Harrison has continued to fascinate fans from all over the world, many of whom make an annual pilgrimage to Beatles Story to learn more.  In 2011 Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese’s documentary ‘Living in a Material World’ brought Harrison’s music and philosophies to a whole new generation.

Beatles Story will also be engaging with fans across the globe through dedicated George activity across Facebook and Twitter social media platforms.
