Ground-breaking: work begins at Strawberry Field

The Salvation Army, with a little help from their friends, have broken ground at Liverpool’s Strawberry Field today as building work begins on the iconic site.

Soon, the charity’s vision will become a reality and the world-famous red gates will open to the public for the first time, giving visitors the chance to walk through the grounds where John Lennon played as a child.

 

The new vision is set to include a visitor attraction that will tell the story of Lennon’s childhood connection with Strawberry Field, and a ‘Steps to Work’ vocational training and work placement hub for young people with learning disabilities. The unique, innovative and ground-breaking venture aligns community, business and tourism in the City of Liverpool.

 

A time capsule box has been placed at the heart of the new building’s footprint, laid by Major Roger Batt of The Salvation Army, Julia Baird John Lennon’s sister and Honorary President of the project, Lady Martin OBE, Cliff Cooper Founder and CEO Orange Music Electronic.co, as well as young adults who are amongst the first group of trainees to pass through the ‘Steps to Work’ placement hub.

 

The original gates from the time that John Lennon would play in the grounds of the site are currently on display at The Beatles Story, as the award-winning attraction pledges its support to the project. The gates will remain on display until building work has been completed, at which point they will return to the Salvation Army site.

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.
