Beatles Master: Beatles Story team member graduates with Beatles masters degree

Beatles Master: Beatles Story team member graduates with Beatles masters degree

Charlotte Martin is celebrating after becoming the first member of staff at the Beatles Story to graduate with a MA in The Beatles, Popular Music and Society through a connection between the Beatles Story and Liverpool Hope University.

The course, which has been running at Liverpool Hope University since 2010, looks at the social, cultural and economic significance of the music of The Beatles and their contemporaries, and music’s place in the development of identity.

Charlotte is employed as Groups Development Officer at our world-famous Albert Dock attraction and has welcomed people from across the globe to the Beatles Story for the past seventeen years.

She wrote her dissertation on the economic value of The Cavern Club and how it has become a significant part of Liverpool’s tourism industry. As part of her research she interviewed The Beatles’ secretary Freida Kelly, and even looked at archives from the 18th century which detailed The Cavern Club site’s original use as a warehouse.

Charlotte, who lives in Liverpool City Centre, was given the opportunity to undertake the MA by the Beatles Story, who funded the course.

Charlotte said: “I really enjoyed the course. It was challenging and academically rigourous, but it has helped me to enhance my knowledge and to further develop my presentation and communication skills, which really helps me at work."

"I get a real sense of satisfaction from seeing people really connect with Liverpool’s musical heritage. Musical heritage is a key income stream for the city’s tourist industry and I hope that my research has helped to highlight that.”

	Get Back: The rare Harrison guitar returns

Get Back: The rare Harrison guitar returns

The rare Australian Maton MS-500 Mastersound electronic guitar, which recently sold at auction for almost half a million dollars (£312,000), has returned on loan to the Beatles Story.

It is thought that Harrison had borrowed the guitar from Barratt's music shop in Manchester while his legendary Gretsch Country Gentleman guitar was being repaired. It was played only a small number of times during ...self-willed and selfish women who surrounded John as he grew up.
