Peacing Together: John Lennon's gypsy caravan

Peacing Together: John Lennon's gypsy caravan

Missing for nearly 50 years, the Sgt Pepper’s psychedelic gypsy caravan, owned by John Lennon, is on its way back to delight Beatles fans around the world. The caravan is currently undergoing a highly specialised restoration to return it to the splendour of its 1967 debut. The restored caravan will be spearheading 'Peacing Together', a charity peace and love project, which aims to see the caravan on tour in 2017, for the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ album ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’. We all remember John’s psychedelic Rolls Royce but the psychedelic Caravan, rarely seen in public, has a story to tell that brings another dimension to our understanding of the legendary Beatle. The Peacing Together tour will be sharing the untold story of the caravan with Beatles fans, whilst heading a campaign to raise funds and awareness for a number of peace and healing causes. The Beatles Story is giving its support to the restoration of this important long lost piece of John Lennon history and we ask you to join us in helping to bring the caravan back to life. The charity is lining up a number of activities, competitions and prize draws for 2016 which will offer fans a unique opportunity to be part of the restoration and film project. For more information and to sign up for newsletters, competitions, prize draws and the developing peace and healing projects click here.

Poster boys: New memorabilia goes on display at the Beatles Story, Albert Dock

Most of the time when we bring new memorabilia into the exhibition it comes from a collector looking for a home for their prized possession; but for a poster that came into the exhibition last week the story is very different.
