Join The Beatles Story for a free event as they celebrate George’s life and spirituality on what would have been his 80th birthday.
The Beatles Story invites you to the Fab4 Café at Liverpool’s Royal Albert Dock for a special panel discussion and Q&A session with Hare Krishna devotees who knew George personally, along with live music and workshop activities for all ages!
George’s Hare Krishna faith was an important part of his life and a major influence on his music. The Beatles Story invites you to become immersed in the movement George became a key part of from the late 1960s.
Join them to welcome Hare Krishna devotees from around the country, and host Pradyumna Pradip Gajjar, in the 50th year of Bhaktivedanta Manor – which was donated to the movement by George in 1973. Pradip and the panel will be talking about their faith and their time with George, and will be answering your questions in a Q&A session.
The Beatles Story will be celebrating George’s 80th birthday throughout the day, and in addition to the panel discussion you can enjoy live music from The Cavern Club’s Clark Gilmour, and Mukunda Michael Murphy from ‘My Sweet Lord: The Spiritual Journey of George Harrison.’ We’ll also be hosting children’s activities in our Discovery Zone, and an Indian instrument workshop.
Visitors will also have the chance to try The Fab4 Cafe’s ‘George’s Soup’ – a spicy vegan lentil soup made from George Harrison’s own recipe!
The Fab4 Café, which evokes the spirit of the 1960s, is located at The Beatles Story at Liverpool’s Royal Albert Dock. The entrance is situated inside the Fab4 Store on Gower Street. The Beatles Story is the world’s largest permanent exhibition purely devoted to telling the story of the lives and times of The Beatles, and transports visitors on an incredible immersive journey telling the story of how four young lads from Liverpool were propelled to the dizzy heights of fame and fortune from their humble childhood beginnings.
The event is free to attend, however we encourage visitors to donate to George Harrison’s charity – ‘The Material World Foundation.’ The Foundation has supported hundreds of individuals, organisations and charities since it was established by George in 1973, including Liverpool-based LIPA and Alder Hey Children’s hospital.
