Come and pay your respects to John Lennon at our fourth John Lennon Peace Vigil event


We're inviting you to the fourth John Lennon Peace Vigil. The John Lennon Peace Vigil is a free public event with one goal; to respectfully remember an icon on the anniversary of his untimely death on 8th December, 1980.

This will be the fourth John Lennon Peace Vigil that we have organised and this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever with onstage tributes, poems and songs being dedicated to John.

Leading the tributes will be up and coming Liverpool band MiC LOWRY who will perform a special set dedicated to John Lennon. The young band was first brought to the attention of the Beatles Story after Yoko Ono chose them to perform for her when she visited Liverpool earlier this year.

Watch MiC LOWRY performing John Lennon's single Watching the Wheels here:

Throughout the evening we will open up parts of their exhibition relating to John including the iconic 'White Room', a recreation of the room from John’s 1971 Imagine music video and John’s 'solo booth', which homes a pair of his iconic round glasses. A dedicated area for fans to leave their messages of respect to John will also be opened especially for the night.

The evening will draw to a close with a candlelit walk to the European Peace Monument where fans can pay their respects to John. Unveiled by Julian and Cynthia Lennon on what would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday, the European Peace Monument has become a fitting tribute to John’s enduring message of peace. Located opposite the Echo Arena, the monument is the perfect place to consider memories of John and the possibility of world peace.

Where: The Beatles Story, Britannia Vaults, Albert Dock, Liverpool, L3 4AD

When: Sunday, 8th December, 2013 - 19:00 - 20:30 (GMT)
