This session examines the lives, works and influence of The Beatles on contemporary society. We will follow in the footsteps of The Beatles as they embark on their extraordinary career. Our journey will start from their early days as a cover band in Liverpool and Hamburg, into the excitement of Beatlemania to the formation of APPLE, and finally to their remarkable final recordings at Abbey Road Studios. Coming full circle, we will explore highlights of each individual’s post Beatles work.
