Although the Beatles were from Liverpool, their Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album could only have been made in London.
On this unique virtual tour:
hear where and how the album was made;
learn about the people and places that influenced the writing of the songs – ranging from circus posters, friends of the Beatles’ children, to TV ads for cornflakes;
and how the amazing album cover collage was put together.
‘A splendid time is guaranteed for all
This is a live online tour, and that there will be a Q & A session at the end. It is a great opportunity to meet fans from around the world!
