When you think of Liverpool, almost everyone will associate the Beatles as the city’s biggest export. The band have been widely cited as changing the face of modern music ever since they rose to fame in the 1960’s. In order to celebrate the life and times of the group, Liverpool hosts a week of concerts, exhibitions, guest speakers and much more in the Beatles honour. Over 70 bands from 20 different countries will pay homage to their idols at the Cavern Club, where the Beatles played their early gigs, as well as other venues across Liverpool. Former Beatle Ringo Starr has also made several appearances at Beatle Week.
For international visitors Liverpool John Lennon Airport is the nearest airport, named after the Beatles singer. Travelling by train change at Liverpool Central for Lime Street or James Street. If using local buses, then the stop at Liverpool One shopping centre is within walking distance. Ticket prices will be announced on the official website, prices varying between events. Times of events will also be available, although the best in live music will be held during the evenings. Packages are often available for discounts when booking several shows. Check online or with individual venues if there are any age restrictions.
